When I first started my blog a year ago, one of my first posts was about Thanksgiving in Oregon.
Well, here we are again!
Although this is my second Thanksgiving in Oregon as a Newlywed, it's actually my fourth Thanksgiving with the Mr's family up there and I'm really starting to feel like a part of "the crew".
There are several great Thanksgiving traditions that we do every year.
Tradition #1. Thanksgiving Day (duh)
Lots and lots of eating amazing food prepared by my Mother in Law. As well as drinking delicious wine that the Mr. and I provide.
Playing games together.
(That's the Mr. and his three younger brothers. Aren't they so cute!? Attention ladies, they are ALL single.)
And watching a movie at home as a family.
This year's movie was Julie & Julia which I was so happy about because we usually just see "guy" movies. I really liked it, especially since I'm a blogger.
Tradition #2: Christmas Tree
Every year we head out to a giant Christmas Tree farm to pick a tree.
Then we chop it down, bring it home, and decorate it!
I always laugh and say that we could just get a tree from someone's yard, because there are millions of pine trees in Oregon, unlike Southern California where we actually need Christmas tree lots and farms.
Tradition #3: Movie
Every year my in-laws treat us all to new release in the theater that we see as a family.
This year we saw Fantastic Mr. Fox. I loved it! Such a fun, quirky, and insightful little movie. It is really great for all ages.
How was your Thanksgiving? Any special traditions that you do every year?
