Ten Days of Thanksgiving: Day 10

I am thankful that my entire family will be together this Thanksgiving.

Tomorrow, I will gather with my parents, my 4 siblings, their spouses, and my 4 nephews at my parents' home. We are separated by geography and busy schedules, so it's such a blessing when we can all be together in one place. Our family has holidays sort of down to a science - everyone is home for either Thanksgiving or Christmas. This is the year that everyone is home for Thanksgiving.

I can't wait to enjoy a delicious meal prepared by mom - with the help of others. She is definitely the mastermind behind the feast.

I can't wait to play Apples to Apples - most of the people in my family have a sarcastic sense of humor so playing this game with them crack me up.

I can't wait to play with my nephews and watch them interact. I'm hoping to play some Candy Land and Hi Ho Cherrio!

I can't wait to go for a run with my sister.

I can't wait to play Bananagrams with my mom, sister, and sister-in-law (and whoever else we can talk into playing!).

I can't wait to look around the room and see every person in my immediate family!

I am crossing my fingers and praying that everyone makes it home safely! The weatherman is forecasting freezing rain in Minneapolis and snow near my parents so I am leaving this morning in the hopes of beating the bad weather! I hope my siblings all travel safely as well!

For all my American readers, have a safe and fabulous Thanksgiving weekend! For those not celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow, I hope the rest of week flies by for you!

I've enjoyed sharing 10 things for which I am thankful! I'm sure I'll be back next week with a recap of my holiday weekend!

Have a wonderful time!! You're going to have so much fun (especially with Apples to Apples; we played that with Taboo at Thanksgiving too!), and I'll keep everyone in my thoughts praying for safe travel. We've had an enormous snow dump here so I know how treacherous it is travelling right now!

I hope the weather holds off for you! I love spending time with the family. The fact that we no longer live with our parents and siblings makes this time of year so much more special. Enjoy your long weekend, Lisa!
