JUST DANCE FOR THANKSGIVING

Happy Thanksgiving Day to everyone!!

greeting you while cooking for our thankgiving dinner tonight....

here is a picture of our turkey last year which I already forgot how we cooked... it was our first time cooking turkey, so we were kinda clueless... but it turned out good... not bad for a first time!

as you all may already know, I am Filipino & I did not grow up here... we've been here for a little over 10 years but we never really celebrated Thanksgiving until a couple of years ago.. & it was just because the manfriend was born & raised here & he started looking for that tradition that he was used to having while growin up with his family... so to give him that, we started cooking & celebrating Thanksgiving... which I don't really mind... I kinda like that feel of having to prepare for something spent with family....

also, it was my Mom's birthday last Sunday so we're kinda celebrating her birthday at the same time... it's very low key though... we're not having that much... just a simple dinner....

this year we are having spaghetti, some Neptune salad, mashed potatoes & gravey, pumpkin pie, my mom's birthday cake, strawberry jello pretzel salad & maybe add some other stuff later on...

& of course we're having a Maple-Roasted Turkey with Sage, Smoked Bacon & Cornbread stuffing... (click HERE if you are interested with the recipe)

take a look at our bird this year...
our friend Renan gave it to us... he gave us one last year as well...I'm thinking that it became a tradition from then on... he said he doesn't know how to cook it, so he will give it to someone who can & then just come over to eat there... & that's exactly what he did last year...

the stuffing....
yummy cornbread with all kinds of other yummy stuff...

this is what's cooking in the oven right about now...

on the other note, we bought Just Dance 2 a couple of days ago....

so the plan is just a simple dinner & play Just Dance 2 all night loooong... LOL

here are the little monsters dancing away yesterday... 

they looooove this game!

their favorite is the "Monster Mash" by The Frighteners.... & here they are doing the Frankenstein walk... LOL

another fave is "Jump" by Studio Allstars

***sigh*** priceless!!

we wanted to get them the Just Dance Kids but it was sold out when we went....

I would give you a breakdown of all the things I am thankful for, but if I do that this post would not end.. so let me just take you to a shortcut & say that I am thankful for everything that's in my life (especially the ones photographed above).... everything in my life is a part of ME... whether it's bad or good, I am thankful for it....

I am also oh so thankful to all my 399 followers... I'm one follower shy of hitting 400! YAY!!! thank you so much y'all!! a giveaway is in the works!

how bout you?? what are you thankful for this Thanksgiving Day???

anyhoo.... that's what's up with me on Thanksgiving day..... gotta end this now & get back to cooking... LOL

hope you all have a good one!!
