Thanksgiving 2017 was totally different than Thanksgiving 2016. Last year, we were in Disney. This year we were at home.
We started the day by sleeping in. Both boys slept in which is typical for the Wee One but not the Imaginative One. He must be going through a growth spurt because he complained about being tired even after sleeping in longer than normal.
After watching the Macy’s Day parade, we cleaned a little bit before heading to the Senior Center to help serve food. I wanted to help but they told the adults to stand on the side and have a drink while waiting on the boys.
The boys helped clear tables and serve some of the seniors. Then they helped clean off the tables. I helped with moving the centerpieces off the tables so they could be put away.
While we were there, we were allowed to have some food which was very generous of them. So I ended up with TWO Thanksgiving meals.
Here are some photos of our time at the senior center:
After we were finished with at the Senior Center, we went home, finished cleaning, and cooked the meal.
The Wee One and the Imaginative One helped get some of the food ready. The Wee One set up the table.
After the table was set, the boys decided to watch Moana because we had watched it exactly the year before at Disney Springs. The Wee One knew a lot of the lines of the movie.
I had gotten the plates and bowls at the Dollar Tree. They were made in Canada not China so the dollar a plate is a good deal. Both the Wee One and the Imaginative One are notorious for breaking plates, bowls, etc. . . so it is a good idea to have $1 plates and bowls.
Then it was time for the big meal.
I hope you enjoyed my Thanksgiving day.
What did you do on your Thanksgiving day?
Have a magical day,
