    We’re doing the whole two sides of the family trek… first to my mom’s family’s dinner, and then to R’s mom’s family’s dinner. Apparently the dad’s sides get left out? Haha. Anyway, it’ll be a lot of driving, and it’s supposed to snow (eek!) so I’m just hoping the roads aren’t too bad.

    We flew/are flying (I got in this morning, Fiance is en route as I type this) to see both our families who live in the same area. FI’s parents invited my family over this year, which is a huge first for both families – we are both the first to get married. We’re going to need some quantity of wine for this one. ๐Ÿ™‚ Should be fun I hope, the parents have met once before and hit it off remarkably.

    @offbeat That sounds like a lot of fun! Our friends like to do a sleepover a few days before Christmas and exchange presents, always such a good time.

    We’re having our first big thanksgiving together (last year we were in paris, sigh.) AND my entire family is coming from Hawaii. Yup.  We’re gonna have a full house with 10 people, 2 dogs and 1 cat and a full spread of deliciousness as Fiance is a chef. mmmm….

    we usually see both families because they are only a town or two apart (mine for lunch, his for dinner) … but we weren’t invited to his fam’s turkey day this year.  long story short, my Fiance and his bro haven’t spoken for over 6 months, so we weren’t even asked to come. /sigh

    None of the options above work for me. We are driving about an hour south of our home to celebrate Thanksgiving iwth my Dad’s side of the family (hosted by my cousin). I do not consider this going out of town because we will be home sleeping in our own bed Thanksgiving night. No hide a bed at my Aunt’s house, thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    We’re probably the least exciting couple on Thanksgiving. We stay home and cook an entire meal for just the two of us. Then we stuff ourselves, eat pie on the couch, and pass out at like 8 p.m. Haha.

    We travel a lot for Christmas so Thanksgiving is kind of “our” holiday to spend together … just the two of us.
