  1. Every year we go to my brothers house to eat, drink, and be thankful! We will have two turkeys, one made “traditional” complete with dressing and one boiled in crawfish boil complete with corn, potatoes, mushrooms, and whatever else we decide to throw in the pot. It is delicious!

  2. Every year for Thanksgiving we go to my In-laws on Thanksgiving Day, where we fry a turkey. Then the following weekend we enjoy Thanksgiving with my side of the family, where we have a more traditional Thanksgiving meal. I’m always in charge of the homemade dressing and pumpkin pies! We love Thanksgiving because of the fellowship it brings!
