The Week Ahead....
Then later it is still early enough that some can go to other relatives for a bit of supper/dinner. It makes a long day really. I have always been tired at the end of the day. But as soon as it's all over, I am a bit sad . I start looking forward to the next holiday get together. Which for us is Christmas.
I used to have chili supper, tree decorating, it's Angie birthday ...at the first week of December. As time as gone on, everyone changes the traditions a little. Our children start doing their own things, starting their own traditions. We can't take offence , we just let them grow, as we were allowed , by our own parents.
Wishing everyone a nice Sunday. XO

Hi Ann, thinking of you...Hope your week is blessed and your thanksgiving also.oxo,SusieDelete
It does sound so very lovely - family gathered around, food and games, conversation. All wonderful. Hope it is a happy time, Susie, and I know it is kind of a letdown when it's over. For me, a letdown and a relief at the same time. lolReplyDelete
Judy, I know that same feeling relief and sadness. We love it while it's going on and then feel sad that it will be awhile before we can have that much fun again. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete

Hi Nonnie. I hope you Thanksgiving is a great day. xoxo,SusieDelete
Your day sounds a lot like ours Susie. Usually eat between 1 and 2. We are going to our sons home this year. First time I haven't had it here since we moved in. I'm only making a couple of things as well. It will be different, but delightful! I agree, everyone starts their own traditions and we have to just go with the flow. Happy Holiday my friend!ReplyDelete
Jann, We moms roll with the flow. :) It will be fun to be with our children and their families . We just don't have to clean as much. That is a plus. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo,SusieDelete
We were talking about the big Thanksgiving dinners we hosted over the years just today. It's different for us now but I still have so much to be thankful for so I can't complain. Enjoy your week my friend! Sweet hugs, DianeReplyDelete
Diane, It is fun to remember some of our old family holidays together. I miss my parents, by brother Miles and his wife. Heck, I just miss the kids being little. LOL. But life must go on. Blessings to you, xoxo,SusieDelete
As my "kids" are on their own, I just say when the meal is and whoever can make it works.ReplyDelete
Deb, That is really all we can do without making a big fuss. Life is too short to get upset. So we have thanksgiving with as many that can make it. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I know how you feel. Our grandchildren and children are doing the same. I miss the big get togethers but we have. to allow them to start their own traditions. I do enjoy the holidays so much Happy Thanksgiving from my home to yours. Hugs, xoReplyDelete
Susie, I hope you are up to celebrating thanksgiving with your loved ones. Don't over do.:):) Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
As families grow its hard to keep some tradtions. You are right to give them the freedom of their own traditions. I like how everyone finds fun after the dinner. Happy Thanksgiving.ReplyDelete
Debby, I hope you have a great week. It will be fun to be with loved ones. xoxo,SusieDelete
The traditions do change. I remember my mom dressed up in pearls and heals along with my grandmothers and aunts, and we all sat down to a formal dinner.ReplyDelete
Now things are much more relaxed. Come as you are, and everyone brings dishes. But no matter how we celebrate, it is always a good time.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
Thank you LIn, I wish the same to you. I have never had a formal dinner. Our families are way to big for that. I would still love to wear some pearls When I was young, there were times I wore dresses and heels to the holiday gatherings. Now it's about comfort, especially with family. Blessings, xoxo,SusieReplyDelete
I have always enjoyed the holiday season despite of some of the madness associated with them. From growing up and spending the holidays with my cousins. Thanksgiving our house, Christmas theirs. Then you hunker down to get through January and February. Ah Spring!ReplyDelete
Thanks again for your support.
