Pillows and blankets end up on the floor and we spend the rest of the night watching some classic Thanksgiving Movies. We always have a debate on which movies to watch since we love them all. One of our favorites is definitely Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Have you seen this hilarious classic comedy?

Did you know I was born and raised in Plymouth, MA? I sure was! the exact spot where the Pilgrims and Indians had the first Thanksgiving. You can read a little bit about what it was like here Growing up in Plymouth, MA – Thanksgiving memories. Just another reason why family traditions and making memories are so important to me. As is teaching my children to be thankful for each and every day we are able to spend with each other. Life is to short, we need to live it and love it to the fullest every single day.
Do you have any family traditions? I love hearing how others make their days special!
