Thanksgiving Traditions

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days! We have this amazing tradition where we spend it with close family friends. It started many years ago when they were remodeling their kitchen and couldn't use their oven! It is one of my most favorite traditions and we change host houses every year! This year my family hosted.

We had more family friends join us for Thanksgiving dinner and it was the best year yet. Our three families have known each other for thirteen years and we always have the most fun together! We tend to break into song when we finish our dinner... it's become a tradition within a tradition! We've covered Journey, The Lion King, Wicked, and even The Sound of Music over the years. 

My oldest sister decided to create a new tradition of running the local Turkey Trot every year! After the race my dad rewards us by taking us to the Hilton Head Diner for breakfast. The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade gets recorded so we can watch it as we cook and rest up before eating our amazing dinner! (The Build-A-Bear float has always been my favorite!)

These are my favorite pictures from a very eventful day!
