Growing up, Thanksgiving was the big holiday in my family. I spent the night with my grandparents every Thanksgiving Eve. I helped my grandma string the green beans. I woke up to the smell of a turkey that had been in the oven for hours. And I can't forget about my grandma's homemade stuffing (I just found out my dad is using a new stuffing recipe this year! Is he crazy!?!). We postponed Christmas a couple of times because a family member was sick. None of us wanted to miss out!
My husband grew up with a large extended family. Thanksgiving was a lot of fun for them. His dad, my father-in-law, would write plays for all the kids to act out. Doesn't that sound like the most fun!?!
So far, there's just a few grandkids in our immediate family but I keep telling my husband he needs to write a play this year for my kids and their cousins to act out. So far, he's vetoing my idea.
One of my favorite things to make for Thanksgiving is my husband's Granny T's pecan pie. It's seriously the best!
I love the idea of two families joining together and making new memories and traditions of their own. I really want the holidays to be a time of joyous memories for my husband and I and our children. While I don't host a Thanksgiving spread quite yet (thank you Mom and Dad and Rick and Martha), I already envision what I'll cook and how my kitchen table will look and what I'll need for when I'm handed down those responsibilities!
These Target Wedding Registry Link products can help you create and serve this yummy pie:
