Blog Hop

This week's blog hop hosted by Crazy for Books continues the partying tradition. Jennifer suggests that:

"Since Thanksgiving is coming up next week, let's use this week's hop to share what we are most thankful for and what are holiday traditions are!"

1. I am most thankful for (a) my husband. He's put up with me and helped me keep things in perspective for over twenty years...and (b) for my children who make it all worthwhile!

2. Thanksgiving was always a family holiday for me, so it was sad moving to a city where we were alone. Traveling at Thanksgiving can be a nightmare, especially once the kids were in school, so we needed a way to stay put and celebrate. Thankfully, we have wonderful friends who host a big holiday dinner party, and this has become a tradition we look forward to every year.

  1. Hello my dear,

    I'm hopping around this fine night...  I'm thankful for my boys, the three kitties I just acquired, and time travel.

    The Mad Scientist is starting a Reading Bucket List challenge for 2011... It should be a fun way to get some books read.  Sign up if it is something you'd like to try.

    I'm also doing a week tribute of sorts for Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate Series.  Today is a tribute to the Scruffy Scottish Werewolf.

  2. Old follower hopping through to wish you a great weekend! It's great that you have friends who you can celebrate with!

  3. Thanksgiving is my holiday. My oldest son's birthday is right at this time so it was understood that this would be my holiday to cook and have everyone over. We usually have the traditional Thanksgiving meal. I cook the dressing that my Mom taught me how to make. I love this time of year. I'm off from work almost the whole week. Love it!!

  6. Thanks for hopping by! Yep, being vegetarian and a guest in someone else's home for dinner (especially Thanksgiving dinner) can be tricky...good for your daughter for managing! :)
