So what are your Thanksgiving plans?

Just wondering what everyone plans are for the Thanksgiving Holiday?

Mine is spending it with my cousins and their families. There will be 12 of us for dinner on Thursday, and some showing up later. Believe it or not we are not having having turkey for it is not a big hit with them, so we are having ham and Italian dishes, since my dad's side of the family are 100% Italian Americans. This is the 4th Thanksgiving since my mom passed away in 2003. and my dad in 1999. Each year seems to get a little easier, but I do miss them so very much. Hope everyone here who celebrates the Holiday will have have good one.

Into the heart of a child...

Eating turkey, watching football, sticking my pant down my pants and putting off work I could do in the morning to the weekend.

Sleep in till 11:30 (the best part) b/c I don't have to make a dish just bring sodas, go to my aunt's with my maternal relatives (even though my parents aren't going), then possibly making a showing at the paternal side, but not likely (that's where my parents will be, but we don't like that side much). Friday Phil has to work, so I'll probably sleep in and catch up on TV or Christmas!

Running away with Steve to the Owens Valley, like we've done every year for the past dozen years or so.

Driving to Seattle to have dinner with my extended family there. I find out tomorrow if I get Friday off or not. If I do, I'll stay the entire weekend and hang out with family and friends. If not, I'll head back home early Friday morning. Should be great!
Insert something interesting here

Mom and I will start cooking on Wednesday (the turkey and the cornbread for the dressing), I'll also be busy on Wednesday cleaning up the dining room and decorating a little. Then on thursday, we'll spend the day cooking everything else (which includes reheating the turkey, chopping tons of celery and onions for the dressing, and peeling potatoes).
The family will get here (everybody buy my sister and my cousin, who live on the other side of the country), and we'll stuff our faces, and then be really lazy

Sleep in, watch some parade, go to my moms with the kids & hubby, with my brother and his wife and my 2 year old niece who I adore. And I was just told by my bro I am going to be an aunt again. That will make no. 4 niece or nephew for me, so I am very thankful

Eat turkey and desserts.

My Thanksgiving celebration is going to be tomorrow evening (which I just found out at 5:20 pm today ). Just me, my aunt, my brother, and my niece (his daughter) -- I like the small gatherings and that's pretty much the only family around here anyway.

Just going to have a nice dinner and maybe watch a movie. The hairy part is getting everything ready while working in an already scheduled trip (business) to Yellow Springs (a 162 mile round trip) in the afternoon. Still it should be fun.

On the actual day I will probably do most of my Christmas shopping online.

sorry to be a party pooper

Dinner at my mom's with a cousin & her family, Mr. Blu's mom & stepdad, brother & sis-n-law, and a dear friend and his mother. No turkey, just some grilled chicken and lemon pepper pork tenderloin.

Besides, we're doing the traditional stuff Saturday with my mom's siblings & all the cousins & their kids.

Good thing Mr. Blu & I just inherited/salvaged a treadmill from the neighbors!

I will be eating as much food as I can keep down. I will then wake up early the following morning to go to my admin job and work there and by that I mean decorating the office for Christmas. I will then work the closing shift at my other job. It will be busy weekend for me. Ah retail work during the holidays
