PRE THANKSGIVING DINNER

We usually celebrate Thanksgiving with family.  A couple of years ago, Mark and I started a yearly tradition - a Pre Thanksgiving dinner... just the 5 of us.
(We are heading to NY/NJ tomorrow to celebrate Thanksgiving with Mark's family.)

We dress up and we ask the kids to write a list of what they are thankful for.
(Simple dinner menu, I printed the free menu template from here.)


We are thankful for family, friends and good health.

Have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

You take the best pictures! So gorgeous. And what a great idea to spend a pre-Thanksgiving dinner together. Might have to try that this year (that way I can deck out my dining room too!) Safe travels tomorrow and happy Thanksgiving:)

What a great idea! And it really could apply to any major holiday where we travel to be with family. The printed menu is a very sweet touch and getting dressed up always makes an event more special :)

I love the big family gatherings but I think it's so important to start family traditions with just our own little family. This is so perfect. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
