The monkey family and I don't have family in our state so we were lucky enough to have been invited by friends to have Thanksgiving with them. The past couple of years we'd been celebrating Thanksgiving alone, which was still pleasant, but not quite the same as being with a larger group. My mom always had extended family over to our house for Thanksgiving and would prepare a large elegant meal. This was one of the few times we got to eat in the formal dining room. My mother is also a really good cook. I'm not sure why that didn't get passed on to me. Dadda monkey would say I inherited her nagging trait, but that's another topic entirely. This Thanksgiving I'm especially thankful for having friends nearby who have welcomed us into their home. It will feel more festive this year to dine with others and the monkeys will have other kids to play with as well. Dadda monkey is hoping they'll have the football games on. I'm also thankful to have people taking their time to read these posts. Wherever you're spending this holiday, I hope you enjoy it. Happy Thanksgiving!
I'm a retired flight attendant turned stay at home Mom with a family I'm devoted to. I have a little girl monkey pre-schooler and a little boy monkey toddler. I like experiencing new things and am constantly trying to improve not only my life, but the daily grind of my family. I may not always succeed or lack the energy to do more, but I'll always strive for better the next day. We love watching movies and traveling. Adventure is the spice of life and my life needs some kick!
