on thanksgiving day

While we cook:
Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Monopoly, your best Pilgrim Costume, Family Construction Paper Turkey, and a Thankful Tree

. Turkey
. My Mom's Dressing (absolutely NOT inside the Bird!)
. Mashed Potatoes *and* Gravy
. Sweet Potatoes
. Green Bean Casserole (add 1 Cup Ranch Dressing to this)
. Corn
. Rolls
. Cranberry Sauce (not sure why...Tradition, maybe?...I'm the only one who eats it!)
. Iced Tea

. My Grandma Dutchie's Pumpkin Roll
. Coffee

When it's over:
Elf ...and boxes, boxes, and boxes of Christmas Decorations (to be put up the next day)

How does your family celebrate? Do you watch the parade? Gravy, no gravy? Apple Pie instead of Pumpkin? Do you also spread Christmas Cheer by singing loud for all to hear?
