I was thinking about Thanksgiving three years ago in 2008. Jonathan and I were still dating, not even engaged yet and he brought up this idea that his family should spend the holiday with my family on the farm. What a scary thought! The idea of my boy friend's parent's, brother and sister in law spending the weekend with my parents and my many siblings without having ever met was quite daunting. To be honest I still wasn't sure if my siblings even liked Jonathan yet. Haha!
But that Thanksgiving Jonathan's family came and much to my surprise the parents hit it off great! Even my siblings all seemed to approve of Jonathan's one brother and his wife.
Looking back I still chuckle at the thought of having a boyfriend's parents over for a weekend. The idea as a whole is crazy as it's the common view that many in-law and parent deal with disputes and rivalries. Yet I'm so blessed my parents and his parents get along so well. In fact his parents spent the weekend on the farm again just this past Easter.
This thanksgiving we'll be spending it with my growing family, including some friends that will be coming along with us and who knows who else will be sitting around the thanksgiving table.
Anyways with the holiday spirit here's some thanksgiving ideas on my Pinterest.
