2 . What’s your favorite family tradition? sneaking into the kitchen to steal little pieces of the crisply skin from the turkey 

3. What’s your favorite way to give back and help others? I do quite a bit of charity knitting by donating to the local homeless shelter and other projects, plus I focus on shopping locally to support small businesses

4. Name one person who can make you laugh, even months later. Why? oh, without a doubt my stepmom

7. What time do you eat your Thanksgiving meal? my dad likes it between noon-1 o'clock

8. Name one ancestor that you think about on Thanksgiving and tell us why. I think of my grandparents on my dad's side because they are the basis of all my childhood holiday memories

I still love to steal pieces of turkey skin, since my husband or son do the carving. Best part of the meal!

What Bev said! Also, we start watching Christmas movies on Thanksgiving night. "It's a Beautiful Life" and "The Bishop's Wife'.
An "Attitude of Gratitude". Wonderful wish for the next generation.
Enjoy your holiday, Miss Kwizgiver. You are always in my thoughts.
