I'll be spending Thanksgiving this year at my stepmom's.

Probably I'll be coming in to Yakima the day before Thanksgiving and spending the night with my mom and stepdad, since they go to bed at a much later hour than Joan does.

Then I'll be going over to Joan's place Thanksgiving morning and staying through dinner with her, and going back to Mom's for the night.

Mom has talked me into going thrift-shopping with her the day after--starting at what I think is an ungodly hour! (6 AM)

Good thing everyone lives in the same town, or I'd REALLY have trouble juggling activities, dates, and times!

Tuesday afternoon we're driving five hours to Houston to see my brother's concert (he's a music major) and then taking him home. Then I get to wake up early Wednesday to drive an hour north to my school just to go to one class. For an hour. It's a long story, but she's not canceling class (she's not American and super strict about these things as it is) and I'm out of absences due to illness. All my other classes, including Tuesday's are canceled. It just sucks because I haven't seen him since August and he's leaving Friday. But my aunt's family and all of our friends are coming over Wed night and then Thursday, so it should be fun!

Wow, I just heard from my sister who lives on the other side of the country, and she and her family are coming out here this Saturday, because her father-in-law just died. (A mercy, he was in late stage Alzheimer's.) So maybe we'll have an early Thanksgiving together! I haven't had Thanksgiving with my sister since the mid-80s.

My family is small so my extended group of friends rotate the Holiday dinners. Thanksgiving is at one of their houses. I'm bringing my famous 5 cheese Baked Mac and Cheese and a banana pudding recipe that I copped from Paula Deen that is ALWAYS a hit

Going to DC to visit parents and sister. My brother will be flying up too. Looking forward to it. Except I think it might the first time we are doing thanksgiving in a small apartment w/out having a lot of other extended family over. I'm not sure exactly how it's gonna work out. I can't eat anything these days anyways so I don't care much about the food this time .

Cool! Does he go to Rice?

We are headed to my Mom's sister's house near Plymouth, MA. Everyone is bringing their specialty, the kids can play outside with the dog or we can all walk down to the beach. My parent's haven't been up North for Thanksgiving in a couple of years and my oldest brother has not been included for more than a couple of years (long story) so this is the first time the whole clan will be together since before Harry was born. I'm looking forward to it!

Most likely working, unless my days off get back to normal and I get my Wednesday/Thursday schedule back. It's not likely though, as our second chef in the past four months has been fired, and we're bound to be in scheduling chaos for a while. Thanksgiving Thursday is my birthday this year, too.

Tell me about it. The first T-giving I spent with the in-laws was AWFUL. I had no idea they thought that rice and beans were acceptable side dishes, and would have no others!

So now when we're forced to stay here for T-giving, I take my own damned side dishes.

And cookies, of course.

Nope, University of Houston. I hear they're big rivals though!

I'll be going to a party with my parents, sister, best friend and her family, my aunt, and possibly some cousins.

I'm so excited. I haven't seen my friend since August. And I can't wait to eat some cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie!

Going to the in-laws for Thanksgiving.

Last year, I had morning sickness, and traditional Thanksgiving food just turned my stomach. It still doesn't sound good to me. Plus my MIL and SIL are not the best cooks. So I'm not particularly looking forward to the holiday food-wise, but I think we'll have a good time visiting with them.

(Last year the only food that sounded good to me was McDonalds hamburgers, and my MIL went to the drive-thru and got some for me. Bless her heart.)

Usually mom Mom cooks Thanksgiving dinner, but this year my aunt, who moved in with my grandma after my grandpa got sick and passed away a couple years ago, wants to cook. Her boyfriend is going to stay with them that weekend and the two of them are planning on cooking together and everyone is invited there. My mom jumped at the chance to have a year off, needless to say. And I've heard that the bf is a super great cook (and my aunt's not half bad either) so it should be good.

I'm not into holidays yet this year. Am I the only one who feels like last Thanksgiving was, like, 2 months ago tops?! Eeek.

LOL! I grew up w/ rice peas and fried plantains for T-day. It wasn't until I was out of the house that I had cranberry sauce, sweet potato pie and all the "normal" stuff.
