Have any of you finalised your menus or plans yet? I am always interested to see how you celebrate.

My Thanksgiving with the Canadians is not happening. One family could not come and participate and I never want to let any feel they are left out. I have lived with that for many years because I live in a different state than siblings and they don't always give me an invite and let me opportunity for myself. So next year.

I’ll be ordering dinner from the same restaurant again this year. I will make a pumpkin pie because we prefer mine over theirs. With just the 2 of us now and neither one of us is in love with turkey, it works perfect. I miss having the big family dinner here but that’s the process of life. Our son will spend the holiday with his birth mom and her new family so he can be with us for Christmas.

Heading up to Syracuse for the big family dinner.

Last year was surprisingly fun. And, it's a nice break for me, staying at a hotel and not having to cook - I do all the cooking beforehand for the big feast. I lso get to check out the local Cracker Barrel:).

It is so nice of your to share your son with his birth mom now. She shared her son with you and now you are saying Thank You.

I hope that it is a great meal. Seems like a very no fuss way of celebrating.

My aunty told me that her and my uncle are going out for Christmas lunch this year. They are going to a well known hotel in their city. The shocker is the meal is just over $300 per person!!

That sounds wonderful!! How exciting! We’ve done fancy dinners (not on a holiday though) like that a couple of times in our life. I hope they have a beautiful day! Such memories they will have.

We both miss having the big family dinner but now that it’s just the 2 of us, it’s perfect. The food has been really good. We have a nice bottle of wine and have a nice relaxing day.
