Have you thought that far ahead?

All I know is we just made it through all the candy and costumes of Halloween, then of course the second the last trick or treater heads home, it's immediately time to start thinking Thanksgiving. That's the tradition we seem to go by every year. The bird awaits us all.

November 25th, turkey, football, relatives, and a ton of naps, and not necessarily in that order

What's your favorite part of Thanksgiving? All the food? Football all day long? Pumpkin pie? Spending time with family? If you said nodded your head to all of that, then join the club. For some people, turkey day is the best day of the year.

I love Christmas, from the excitement of weeks before, until the day after

To me, Christmas paints a huge picture of happiness. People seem to walk around with a smile on their faces, and you'll find that feeling of warmth, even with our cold North Dakota weather. As corny as I just sounded, I truly love the lights and the glow on the kid's faces as they anticipate Santa's arrival.
