Our Thanksgiving Day On the fourth Thursday of November, Me and my family celebrate Thanksgiving at my aunt’s house because it is just a day to relax and thank my family for whatever they have done for me without being selfish or greedy. We all help today with the preparations. First we get together, then we try to entertain ourselves in different ways, and then we have our feast. We do a lot of fun things, Me and my cousin go buy muffin mix, and then we make muffins. I love going to my cousin’s house in Thanksgiving.
“Why Thanksgiving is Important to Me” Thanksgiving is important to me because of my family. I get to see my aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents. Most of our family lives far away, so it is a great time to see them. I enjoy talking and playing with my cousins. Usually everyone comes to our house the next day to play games, watch movies, and eat more food!
It was Thanksgiving Day on November 27, 2014. My family and I had just arrived at my great-aunt’s opulent lake-side house for Thanksgiving dinner. As soon as we walked through the grand wooden door, my nostrils inhaled a myriad of splendid aromas, and I felt as if nothing could ruin this wonderful (food-filled) day. I quickly realized the house was packed to the brim with many other obnoxious relatives and family friends, yet my mood did not turn sour. As the evening continued, I had come to the realization that I was not feeling all that well, but I was determined to make it through to dinnertime.
She spoke of how thankful she was that we were here. How God had brought us into her life as a blessing. And most importantly she spoke of how much she loved each and everyone of us. As she sat down, another jumped up. This time it was Sindy saying how she hopes God continues to impact our lives and lead us.
Hope and pray everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with Family and Friends. It was just the three of us this year. I (with the help of my son Jerrid) cooked a ham, turkey (breast), dressing, pea salad, potato salad, rolls, cranberry sauce, and pecan pie. It was so good. I had planned to also have green bean casserole but ran out of steam.
Martha looked at the myth of Thanksgiving. The idea that an entire family would happily get together for a huge meal. The family will think and talk about everything that they are thankful for. This is heavily discussed in elementary schools. As a child I remember my teacher suggesting that at dinner we should go around the table and have each family member say something that they are thankful for.
When I spend time with my family and having fun, I think of how lucky I am to have my Grandpa. The three reasons why veterans means more to me on Veterans Day are my Grandpa, family history, and birthday. My Grandpa because of all that he has been through. Family history because of how one war changed most of my family members’ lives. My birthday because it reminds me of how lucky I am to have my .
I woke up and traditionally watched the parade with my family. We cooked all day, and then the rest of our extended family came over. My one-year-old cousin, Emerson, was there and she kept my occupied. I could not resist her cuteness. I ate way too much food and was in a food coma the rest of the night.
Some families gather together at a specific place every year. Some families eat certain foods…. It is very unique that we all do similar things, and also go our own ways on Thanksgiving. Usually on a Thanksgiving gathering, most people go to a certain location every year. For example, my family goes to my aunt’s church in Lafayette for every Thanksgiving.
Every year, I attend many dinner gatherings. One of the dinners I attend around the time of Thanksgiving is at my grandmother’s house. There, I visit with my mother’s side of family. Another dinner I attend is at my great-grandfather’s house. At his house is my father’s side of family, I extremely enjoy their company because all of us together is very rare and only happens 3 times a year.
We all pitched in to serve the residents a home cooked meal. We divided meats, salads, sides and desserts up. Amy provided goodie bags for the guests for some pampering. Matt contacted the Hope Lodge, verifying date and time would work for them. We were a bit on a tight schedule as dinner was at 5:30pm and we needed to be out of the Hope Lodge by 6:30pm due to another event occurring.
Many would also point out she’s a wiz with a needle and thread, making countless costumes and formal attire for her family and friends. We can see her various crafts every Sunday morning during Sunday School Breakfast and other church events. After retiring from DISD Mary began creating culinary delights through her Sunday breakfast ministry at St Mark Missionary Baptist Church. In addition to serving in the Food Ministry, she also taught Vacation Bible School, Adult and Children Sunday School, and orchestrated a community block party for St Mark. An important aspect of Mary’s life is family: her beloved husband, Bobby Jackson has been her sunshine for 27 years whom she enjoys traveling and gardening.
Our group is family we will do anything for each other no matter how ridiculous it may seem, but we are always together. We make each other laugh and feel loved. With all of our different personalities we are a great group of people for you to come and make new friends. Lastly, Marissa’s house is great to go to because of the location. She lives on 525 Rock Street in Saint Marys, PA. Rock Street is located right off of the highway on your way into town.
I refer to them as my sons because I have known them their whole lives and they need a kind, loving mother. They brought food to share, and I, of course, made many lists for this holiday dinner, so as not to forget anything. I included horsdevores, dinner, and desserts, as part of the menu. And again… I forgot things that were needed. I made up another list for my hubby to take to the store, sang jubilantly, “Honey, I forgot to get…” He looks at me disdainfully, rolls his eyes, and says, “Give me a list.” I presented him with my list, wherein, he half-heartedly walked to get his keys and wallet.
