My answers:

How do you usually spend Thanksgiving?
I usually watch the Macey's Parade and then make whatever it is we are taking for the meal. We then either go to my parents or Dave's parents. We rotate each year. This year we are eating at my parents house with them and my brother's family. After we eat, we visit or play games together. When we get home from that we usually watch a movie on TV (always seems to be The Sound of Music or an 0ld Christmas show.) At least I do...the boys usually go play Nintendo rather than watch!

What is the one thing you are most grateful for this year?
My Savior

Do you usually shop on Black Friday or avoid it like the plague?
Oh yes I always shop it! I usually get up about 4: 30 a.m. or even earlier to hit the great early bird sales. It's insane I know! Skyler used to go with me when he was home or I would meet my mom or Dave's sisters later. Last year I went alone and it was no fun. I REALLY hate the long lines and all the people, but it is exciting to get what you are looking for at such a great deal. The past two or three years though, I haven't found it enticing enough to go really early. Most of the sales the past couple of years haven't been all that great. But I always have to go sometime before noon or I feel like I missed out on some great deal!

Midnight Snack
What is your favorite part of the Thanksgiving feast?
Candied yams topped with toasted marshmellows! Mmmm...... And of course I LOVE the turkey (white meat only!)

Recipe for this Week (instead of your recipe for life - what is it for just this week?) Don't give up when things seem hard. There is always strength greater than my own waiting to be given to me if I just ask.


1. The last band I saw live was Josh Groban (not exactly a live band -though he did have one- but it was the last live concert I went to.)

2. What I look forward to most on Thanksgiving is being with family and the yummy smells!

3. My Christmas/holiday shopping is well on it's way this year. Not done, but getting close! Yea!

4. Thoughts of hope right now fill my head.

5. I wish I could wear shorts again, because then it would still be warm weather!

6. Bagpipes sound beautiful!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to attending the state high school championship game where Bryce will be presented his Academic All State award during half time, then rushing back to Taylor's first basketball game, tomorrow my plans include running the Turkey Trot (4 mile race), eating dinner with the visiting General Authority (Elder Hamula) for our stake conference (our Bishop & his wife are unable to attend and so we were invited in their place), then attending the adult stake conference meeting and Sunday, I want to attend Stake Conference and learn a lot!

Candied yams? Are you serious? Yuck! Do you not have pie at your Thanksgiving? Sounds like it's going to be a fun filled and busy weekend. And by the looks of the hula hoop pictures....I think you need to get permission to use my picture! What a dork I look like. Heels and all!

I played and your recipe for the week is a lot like mine was before I realized I needed to put what I did for putting up with the antics of my two youngest boys.:)

Yvonne said...

The sales on Black Friday this year should be good.

I'm a white meat fan, too.

It must have been wonderful to see Josh Groban live--I just love his voice.

I always love the Saturday night session of Stake Conference. Always a great feast.

That was a fun one. I love bagpipes too. I think it's in my blood. I was in a restaurant on St Patty's day with a friend when some bagpipers came in and played. We both had to try hard not to tear up. Somewhere inside me is still in touch with the emerald isle!
