Only 14 days until Thanksgiving!!! I am SUPER excited! This is MY family's big holiday. Each year, except one, ever since I can remember....... we've been going to Snowflake, AZ to meet up with all the family that can. We enjoy an AMAZING weekend/reunion with neverending food and laughs. The one year we celebrated Thanksgiving in Mesa, AZ was because I got married the day before and since family was already in town for the wedding/reception..... it just made sense. However, I think there are a few who resent me because of that particular year. No, just kidding. My family LOVES me.
This year, Jeff is trying to find a ticket (for little or no cost) to go to the Thanksgiving game at ASU. Which means he'll have to find a ride down to the valley and then possibly borrow a car from my family to take back up to Snowflake the day after. We'll see how it works out, but it's not looking good.
Sometimes I feel bad because we never spend Thanksgiving with Jeff's family, but I told him from the very beginning....... this is how it is. We can do Christmas Eve and Christmas morning every year with his family, as long as I get Snowflake. Selfish? Nah. Tradition takes all. I can't wait!!!
This is about how many pies my aunt makes each year -- Okay maybe only half this many, but it still seems like a lot. She makes the BEST pies! I don't know how she has time to do all she does, but they're always made with love, and taste spectacular!!
