Our Thanksgiving traditions are pretty simple. A meal with family. A walk outside if weather allows. And typically the day after Thanksgiving we put up our Christmas tree while my husband's sister is still here visiting with us. The kids love including her in the festivities and we all have fun....well except for my husband who is in charge of all the manual labor. Ha! This year we had to switch things up a bit. His sister had to leave the day after Thanksgiving and my husband had to work today. We decided to move things up a day and do it on Thanksgiving. Yesterday while the Professor was napping we all put up the tree and all the decorations. He came downstairs and was amazed at the transformation. On our tree we have several bell ornaments that will ring. He spends so much time standing in front of them, gently ringing them and then giggling. He just loves it and it is seriously the cutest thing!
Oh, our other tradition is that after doing the tree and decorations we make homemade pizza and watch a movie by the lights of our tree. Since we live in a rural town we typically make our pizza but other places we lived we would order it in. Last night I made homemade pesto pizzas. YUM!
