Thankful Thursdays: Tradition

Well, it's Thanksgiving, the ultimate Thankful Thursday. Today I'm thankful for traditions.

This weekend our family kicks off the holiday season by keeping traditions and breaking them. We'll watch/mock the Macy's parade. We'll take family pictures to send with our Christmas cards. We'll cut stacks and stacks of paper snowflakes. My grandparents will come over and we'll eat traditional foods: apple pie, pumpkin crisp, and sparkling cider, and not-so-traditional homemade tamales. We'll celebrate my new baby cousin, born just last night. We'll start easing into Christmas traditions: party planning, movies, music, decorations, and we'll get our tree!

How are you celebrating today? What are you thankful for?
