I just looked at the calendar and Thanksgiving this year falls on November 25th, just one month until Christmas. That will be another quick month!

Thanks for the heads up. Those 4 week years just fly by and are not my favorite.

And Hanukkah begins on Sunday, November 28, which is at the end of the Thanksgiving weekend. This really complicates gift shopping!

Remember, the Jewish holidays are either early or late - they are never on time!

Maybe it will make it easier. You will have to get it all done at one time. Multitasking at its best. It will go well for you because you are a great plan ahead person.

I am so interested to read about all of your Thanksgiving plans. I am sure that if we celebrated here it would be one of my favourite holidays.

We are entertaining the idea of hosting Thanksgiving at our house this year. My mom's house is so much smaller since they downsized and there are 21 of us total now that we will be there (I think). Our house will be much larger and able to accommodate everyone easier. It's farther for my brother but closer for everyone else, obviously my mom and stepdad would have to drive and get there early to help cook. haha We'll have to discuss and see how we feel about having so many in our house (kids that we don't know- nieces and nephews some very rowdy from what I hear) and then really discuss with my mom and see how she feels about it all.

Basically, for us, it's a question of if my SIL will be hosting in Syracuse and if MIL will be able to attend. Ready to do it either way.

Jess, I suppose you could host a smaller gathering earlier, (Like July 4th). See how it goes before deciding if hosting Thanksgiving is for you.

We'll definitely be at my mom's for that one. We go out on the boat to watch fireworks on the lake. The entire family only gets together for Thanksgiving and Christmas. But I like the suggestion. Maybe I can come up with something else. Oh, I know! We are going to have a housewarming/retirement party I believe once we get settled so that can definitely be a test. I'm not sure who will come but we can invite everyone and DH's family will be invited as well so that will be interesting.
