    Steph - Thanksgiving is really a very special holiday! It brings friends and families together to recognize and be thankful for all of our blessings. We enjoy a beautiful meal together with great conversation, fun times and reflection. No gifts, no extravagances, little cost! It is kind of the calm before the storm!

    I agree...It is now that I have to get ready for the season...We have football (American) starting...preseason at least. Coming from Texas, we are huge fans. So high school football on Friday nights, my boy's game on Sat. and tailgating (BBQ) on Sundays. Then the months fly by...Oct. -Halloween, Nov. -Thanksgiving, and of course Christmas! It is the first day of school here. So, today is the "official" start of my busy season!
    A Very Merry Christmas to all!

    Love everything about this time of year! Our first day of school is September 7th this year! For me, the season starts on Labor Day (9/5) and runs until new Year's day! I do go to some of the high school football games as well, but my daughter is no longer involved in fall sports. I miss the cheerleading, volleyball and soccer games!

    I know what ya mean! I love fall sports...although we do baseball too, it seems as if fall sports are more exciting!

    It is very much the "calm before the storm" as Black Friday starts the next day (I've even seen it start on Thanksgiving which is a travesty).
