Turkey. Mashed potatoes. Stuffing. Rolls. Sweet potatoes. Cranberries. Pumpkin pie. Rainbow Jell-O.
But nothing every goes as expected. This year, a glass plan exploded, I got a new niece, and there were lots of other small things that made the day a little different than I thought it would be.
I looked up my Mayflower ancestors today. And I listed what I was grateful for. My kids made turkeys with feathers, and I wrote on the feathers things like family and brothers and sisters and toys they liked to play with.
Thanksgiving is mostly about the food, and then remembering to be grateful for the food, and trying to enjoy it with the people we love.
