Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!

Thanksgiving is about more than roasting the perfect turkey, viewing the Macy’s Parade, and watching the football game. Thanksgiving is about gathering loved ones and sharing a magnificent meal together. It’s about giving thanks and being appreciative for the numerous things that you have to be grateful for in your life. Thanksgiving is a time of year for both grand and small gestures to show that you are thankful for all the good fortune that has come your way during the year. At the Abston household it is about spending extra time with family and friends. One of our rituals is once the food is put away and the dessert has been eaten it’s off to the movies.
Once we arrive home Jen & I go through the newspaper ads. We each have a copy of the list of items we each would like to get. We make our plan of attack for Black Friday! We decide what stores we want to go to & which ones to hit first. Of course, the order depends on the time the stores open and we figure out the travel patterns in relations to each store. Black Friday has been a family tradition for Jennifer & I for the past fifteen years. We head out for some serious shopping as early as 4am. 

Here’s to everyone having an outstanding & memorable Thanksgiving!!!
