    Question What are you doing for Thanksgiving?!

    Sadly, I no longer have parents who are living, but I do have four siblings and lots of nieces and nephews. We started a tradition where every other year we all get together starting at noon and attempt to have a round-robin doubles tennis tournament at my sister's house. We also break out the martinis. The tennis starts out serious and gets more and more funny and silly the more martinis are consumed.

    We do end up having a very nice, civilized T-giving dinner in the early evening.

    I'm really not a fan of Thanksgiving, but I do look forward to this special time with my siblings and their kids.

    I'll be having Thanksgiving dinner with my husband, my two sons, my niece and my oldest son's girlfriend.

    On Friday, however, we are making the drive from Boise to Reno for the BSU-UNR football game. GO BRONCOS!

    I just spent $75 on wine and cheese for dinner tomorrow! We don't have family in the area, so we are going to a horsey friend's place instead!

    My kids and I are going out to dinner at a nice restaurant. Not much cooking (I did cook dressing and cranberry sauce for leftovers) and no clean up.

    I'm cooking a full Txgiving dinner for my MIL and her husband, otherwise they would have no where to go. My barn owner and her SO are also joining us. I think it will be a very fun day!
