Todd’s Turkey Day Traditions and Thoughts [PHOTOS]
While 2020 has been underwhelming, to say the very least, I still have much to be thankful for. As another "Turkey Day" has come and gone, I thought that I'd let you in to my house to see how my family and I spent our Thanksgiving holiday this year.
In a typical year, my wife, Carrie, and I will have anywhere between 10-14 people over to our house in East Valley for dinner. We eat later in the late afternoon/early evening compared to most folks. Usually around 5:00 or 6:00 p.m. This time around was no different as we sat down at the table -- along with our son Drew and my stepson Gavin -- at about 6 o'clock.
Not surprisingly, there was plenty of snacking, football-watching and gaming as we waited for the feast!
Before we break bread, we take a turkey leg and pass it around the table. Each person takes a moment to say just exactly what they are, indeed, thankful for. For me? Easy. I'm thankful for my wife, sons, my parents continued good health and my siblings and their families. I'm thankful that we are all feeling alright after testing positive for the coronavirus and quarantining for the two weeks leading up to the holiday. And, of course, I am thankful for YOU letting me into your homes and lives every day.
