We started a new tradition this year with the nuggets and started a thankful pumpkin. We started at the first of the month and every night (we may have had to play catch up a few times) we would write something on the pumpkin we were thankful for. We had a few good laughs when A said he was thankful for peanut butter and pizza but I also had a proud momma moment when the first two things he said he was thankful for were Jesus and Mommy.
Later on that night we made our way down to south jersey so we would be in the area the next morning. My sister suggested a girls night for Thanksgiving eve which was perfect because I’m kind of over the crowds and really late nights out. Oh how Thanksgiving Eves have changed. The next morning we ventured out bright and early for the Philadelphia Thanksgiving parade which happens to be the oldest parade in the US.
