A Thanksgiving adventure in the making.......

When I asked all of you for ideas of where we might enjoy our Thanksgiving day, your creativity opened the doors to a very thrilling and exciting adventure based on what you said.

So, after reading all of the ideas, suggestions and fun thoughts, this is what we have decided to do. We'll have to get up really early to be able to fit all the activity into one day.

So, knowing we will be short on time, the night before, we will pack our bags with swimwear and snowsuits, top hats, sunscreen, formal wear, water skis and sturdy shoes for hiking. We'll also need to pack a tent, picnic baskets complete with turkey sandwiches and hot cocoa, cupcakes, popcorn, milk duds and still leave enough room in the car for Johnny Depp to sit in the back with the kids and all the antiques we'll buy on our way to Elephant Butte just outside of T or C.

We'll have breakfast with the Munchkins in Oz, play tag, Simon Says and watch movies with Tin Man, Scarecrow and the Lion. The whole crew will accompany us as we water ski at Elephant Butte Dam and then continue on our Turkey Day trip. The Oz trio will accompany us on our hike to an alternate reality where we will have a roaring fire picnic and build sheet forts and ask Glenda for bubble rides.

After lunch and bit of a rest, we will regroup, say goodbye to the Oz folks, change our clothes and fly to our meeting with the Royals in the South Pole for afternoon tea.

On the next leg of our journey, the in flight movie will be a marathon Back to the Future film fest as we jet to Fiji. We should have plenty of time after arriving in our tropical paradise destination, to be pampered with polka dot pedicures, chocolate chip cookies and hot soup in a thermos.

After a very fun and action packed day we will be arriving home late.  We will sleep in a tent on the living room floor and enjoy each others company laughing and crafting Not Quite Right hearts.

As we drift off to sleep, we will be thinking how cool are those lovelies to think up an adventure like this?

  8. Your Thanksgiving is going to kick ass! I just get to spend the day cooking like a slave and downing klonopin while my in-laws bitch and moan, all the while trying not to eat everything I can get my hands on lest we not forget I'm trying to to heft any more junk in my trunk.
