In the hustle and bustle of daily life I love that Thanksgiving reminds us to stop and be thankful. This is my favorite holiday. It's all about food, family, and football. Other than spending time with family and eating so much you need a great nap, watching Ole Miss beat Mississippi State in the egg bowl is my favorite thing about Thanksgiving. Gobble gobble y'all!"

Now that we are grown and have kids of our own we get together at my mom's. We try to help out by bringing different sides, but no one makes a Thanksgiving spread like my mom! You can guarantee there will be pie, Chex Mix, crafts for the kids, food galore and a few extra guests. My mom invites anyone and everyone she sees - check out ladies in the grocery store, neighbors whose family is somewhere else or people who don't have family to celebrate with. She always says if you leave her house hungry it's your own fault!"

My grandmother passed away last year, but we will continue our Thanksgiving tradition and spend the holiday in her beloved mountain home. She will be greatly missed, but I know she would be tickled to know that her great-grandchildren will be enjoying Highlands as much as we did as children. I wish you all a wonderful, happy and healthy Thanksgiving!"
