    We'll be travelling back to our home state to visit both families. Two full Thanksgiving spreads on one day leads to a looooooooooot of eating. I know both families will be clinging to him a little bit, as we're expecting him to start OCS/other schooling next February, so there's a chance he won't be coming next year. I think my grandma was joking that next year they're all travelling to us. (I hope not, as the house we're living in now is a tiny little two bedroom cottage and there's no way I can fit 15 extra people anywhere other than the yard, and that's not gonna work in northern Indiana, not even considering all the gopher holes)
    I live dangerously - I drink whiskey while knitting.

    We're hosting Thanksgiving here at our house for BOTH sides of our families. It is going to be a mad and chaotic zoo and I'm super pumped about it.

    I also just called and scheduled an early gender scan for the day before so we can do a surprise gender reveal (as long as baby cooperates ) while everyone is here
    Put on your big girl panties and deal with it like a boss.

    Dinner (really more of lunch because my mom is a nurse and works Thanksgiving night so she can have off for Christmas) at my parents' house; DB will be joining for the first time (last year he was out of town) with DD16. The other two kids will be with their mom. Usually, after we finish "dinner," my mom will go to work, I'll take a power nap, and then when she gets home, she and I head out to do Black Friday shopping at midnight at the outlets. We usually last until about 4am, then head home, sleep in, and then that night we get out the Christmas decorations (this is mostly because my parents want to capitalize on all of the children being home to provide manual labor lol)
