PostSubject: A normal family Thanksgiving   Tue Nov 26, 2013 12:48 am

So what are your plans??

I'm going to my grandparent's for Thanksgiving. It's always fun to watch my family and know their predictability.

LIKE...my Aunt Carla getting drunk enough that she walks around the house and says "gobble, gobble" to everyone. My grandparents chirp at each other about who makes the better mashed potatoes (in that cute, old people way after being married 55+ years). Everyone jump into eating while I say grace and afterward they say, "oh Tony, why didn't you remind us to say a prayer before eating?" when I did.

Oh, and the most predictable is grandma ALWAYS forgets to set out the cranberry sauce.

How about you? What are some of the antics you look forward to this year?

Well, when I used to celebrate holidays, Thanksgiving was our 'super-lazy-eat-food-off-of-food-trays-watching-football' day. Later, we'd have a small dinner (ham (since Dad couldn't eat turkey), mashed taters and a veggie (usually either green beans or peas)).

Nothing super exciting....

Nope...I never watched it. It was mostly my Dad and older bro, but even now that my older bro is gone, we don't bother.

I'm not into sports, silly. Razz

And even then...if I had to pick a team, I suppose I would just have to pick my hometown team...the Eagles.

We are still carving out traditions for ourselves but I've made a stuffed pumpkin 2 years in a row so I guess it's a yearly must now.

Same ol', same ol' for my family. We've always celebrated Thanksgiving with my Dad's side of the family, but the past few years some of my Mom's side of the family have included themselves. Our Thanksgiving party always takes place at my family's house...there's always a million people. I have a very big clan, lots of extended family. There seems to always be one new family member (blood, not marriage) that shows up at one of our gatherings that I've never met or even knew existed. It's nuts.

We always have a TON of food. My aunt's husband likes to hunt and he recently got us a deer. I think he's going to be making a deer roast (or would that be a 'venison' roast? lol) on Thursday. He made one last year too and everyone apparently loved it.

Anyhoo. There's not much else to say, that's about it...a ton of family and a ton of food.

I guess every story is pretty much the same (with various amounts of weird or drunken relatives lol)

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention!!  

The family lines start to break down after awhile.  Grandma forgets everyone's names. She will call me TJ and call TJ Scott. My cousin will start calling me her uncle.  Then she'll get her kids to say, "Say bye to your Uncle Tony!"  it's funny.  They they all tell me how much I look like dad and how they miss him.
