But before we skip right over Thanksgiving into Christmas all month... I think it's important to remember that this holiday serves a real purpose.
Thanksgiving is a funny holiday with my family. My last name is Pilgrim... it's been the brunt of many holiday jokes. Grandpa Pilgrim is a preacher... and most Thanksgivings he gives us a mini-sermon during blessing. A reminder of why we should be thankful thru the good and the bad. It's the official kick start to the holiday season... and we do it by remembering to be thankful... right before we plow down people to buy presents! haha.
As I get older... not old, just older... I think we all start to realize how precious family time is. We go and binge eat, not just because it's an excuse, but because our time with our families is precious.
So the weird pic of the kid... that's me. Yes, Punky Brewster sneakers and all! In my family, we never dressed up as Pilgrims for Thanksgiving... we're that all year long... given the choice I always chose to be an Indian. Go figure.
Gotta share the wealth... Being a Pilgrim is pretty fun. What's better is when little boys made fun of my last name, my little sister would beat them up. She always was feisty... still is... so watch out! hahah!
