Lots of families try to see either both sides of the family, split holidays or do both for the big holidays like Thanksgiving. Easier when you all live in the same hometown. That was what happened for us in Crofton this year after a year of skipping last year due to the pandemic. With both our families in Cleveland, Ohio, we tend to spend holidays there. But for the past 25 years (except 2020) we host the Turkey Day Holiday in Maryland.
I have to admit it was a blast to have a full house of Turkey Day revelers in celebration of the season of gratitude. A full dozen of us ate delicious food made mostly by Ryan, played games (with prizes) and danced! Creating more memories with a few new people (girlfriends/boyfriend) made the day(s) even sweeter.
I am thankful for a full heart, a full refrigerator of good food and wonderful family/friends to share it all with.
