Good Morning! I am linking up for the first time with my new friend Holly. It is great way to meet new friends in the blogging world and get to know them better. The conversation is about Thanksgiving which you can either Vlog or Blog your answers to the questions below.

1. What do you look forward to more: the food, football or parades?
I look forward to the Food! Since I was a kid I have looked forward to Turkey, Mashed Potatoes and Brown & Serve Rolls. Just over the past 10 years or so I did add Green bean Casserole and Stuffing to my list. I also enjoy time with my family too.

2. What is your favorite non-traditional Thanksgiving Day dish?
I am not sure if anyone serves anything non-traditional except for salad. I didn't see that growing up and now it is served every Thanksgiving. I guess that is why I feel like it is non-traditional?

3. After dinner, is it football or a nap?
Usually after dinner we have dessert and either go to the next house, play board games and/or catch up. The kids always run around like crazy and play.

4. Do you watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? Which is your favorite float?
We don't have a particular parade that we watch. We kind of just flip through the channels while we are getting ready. Sometimes we don't even get to watch TV while getting ready.

5. Where do you go to celebrate and eat your big meal? Who is there (family, friends)?
On Thanksgiving Day we go to my former-step families house first, around 1-2pm. We visit for a little while, eat and usually have to head over to Jerry's family's house by 4pm, to eat again. We are usually miserably full for the rest of the day. But it is nice getting so see family, I just wish we had more time. At some point over the weekend we go to visit my grandparents who live about 2 hours away. My grandpa has Alzheimer's disease and so we haven't really done a dinner the past few years but we do visit for a few hours, which is nice. Sometimes we also have dinner with my dad at my step-mom's dad's house.

6. What is your favorite turkey day dessert?
I love Pumpkin Pie with whipped cream. If it is available I will have pecan pie too or apple pie. Just depends on what is available. I am making Hungry Girl's Too-Good-To-Deny Pumpkin Pie this year. It's really good!

What do you do for Thanksgiving?
