    Having a small family I love opening up the house to friends who can’t be with their families for Thanksgiving.

  6. Janet Ingraham says:

    The best thing about Thanksgiving is the warmth of family together. The traditional food you can count on. And inviting those who have no one near. Come to think of it, it’s starts the Christmas spirit.

  7. Denise Bryant says:

    Beautiful Thanksgiving cards!
    What I love most about Thanksgiving… this year, I am not doing the cooking! We will be having our meal over at my aunt’s!

  8. Joan Howard says:

    Getting together at Thanksgiving for a huge meal of turkey and all the trimmings is so nice with family and friends. What I love the most is a delicious pecan pie. I usually bake it (1 or more), but it is worth the effort and everyone loves it!

  9. Carey Nusbaum says:

    What cute cards! It would be exciting to win tickets for next year’s SE! It would sure give me something to look forward to, as well as the fun of planning the trip with my best friend! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  10. Florence Charbonneau says:

    These cards are adorable. Thanksgiving is a time for our family to get together and have fun. Catch up on what’s been happening with everyone. Football and naps too.
    The expos are wonderful . I’m not an online shopper. So I love to see what’s out there . And with the make and takes I get to see new items first hand and the classes well of course!!!

  11. Dee Ann Matthews says:

    Three inspiring examples for Thanksgiving cards and even place cards! I’m partial to the patterned turkey with a checkered cloth! My Expo is still to come in November- it would be terrific to have a ticket!

  12. super stick chick says:

  14. Kathy Castillo says:

    My hardest Thanksgiving was Thanksgiving 2011. My oldest son left for Basic Training with the Air Force the Sunday before Thanksgiving. The next year he got stationed in the same city were his brother was in college so that was much better. Still trying to figure out where to go this year since we are all in three places. We may be meeting in the middle. I would love to go to the Expo in Grapevine in March it is close to home and my youngest son lives near there.

  15. Adrienne Peach says:

    Family, family, family!! Love gathering with my loved ones prepping, cooking, talking, enjoying the feast and then spending the evening together.

  16. Michele Ugalde says:

    What I love about Thanksgiving, I love to cook for my family, but we have a a tradition where everybody bring somebody with them that does not have a place to go for Thanksgiving and we share our family with people that are in need we love Thanksgiving because we can give thanks for what we have I would like to go to Expo in Grapevine this year I went last year and I had a ball it was actually on my birthday and it was one of the best birthday present I ever got, I love Expo, I love scrapbooking, I love my mix media, I love everything that I can do crafty, I love to make other people happy, so if you could give me a chance I will go to Expo thanks. also I’d like to volunteer so if you can give me a shout out I’ll be happy to do that thanks and I wish me luck.

  17. Kristie P. says:

    I love everything, the food, the family, the four day weekend. I especially love feeling thankful and reflecting on all the many blessings in my life.

  18. Sarah Jimenez says:

    Being together with my chaotic/noisy family!! Eating and playing games together…4 generations. (I love Thanksgiving dinner, but my favorite is the candied yams my mom makes!!!) Also, my husband makes me wait until after Thanksgiving to start Christmas decorating (Christmas season is my FAVORITE!!!! ??) and so I also get super excited to get all the holly jolly decorations out with my kiddos! ?

  19. Kristin says:

    I love the day to push “pause” on life as usual and be with family, being grateful for them and so many more blessings.

  20. Linda Newman says:

    I love Thanksgiving because we get the family together. We share cooking dinner and laugh then we used to go shopping but we do not do that hoping the stores will stay closed for all families

  21. Mary Kay Ross says:

    I love having my family all under one roof at Thanksgiving and knowing how blessed we all are!!

  22. Frann Rosenblum says:

    The cards are all colorful and very cute! I enjoy the holiday with fun, family, friends and food and of course one more excuse for making cards for those who can’t be with us!

  23. Kay Boone says:

    I love the fact that Thanksgiving has not been so commercialized as the other autumn holidays. I love to send cards to people who have impacted my life.

  24. Penny Mann says:

    Stuffing, pumpkin pie and two extra days off from work! My sister and I loved the expo in Kansas City this year, we ended up staying all day.

  25. Kim Ducat says:

    My favorite thing about Thanksgiving is spending time with family and it is one day of the year that I like to cook. This time of year brings family closer together no matter where they are the rest of the year.

  26. Judy says:

    My favorite thing about Thanksgiving this year will be sharing it with my granddaughter and her family in Hawaii.

  27. Marlene says:

    My most fav think about Thanksgiving, hands down, is the gathering of my wonderful children & grandchildren, giving thanks for all of our many, many blessings!! Of course, the good food is a bonus!

  28. Carolyn O'Neal says:

    There are many things that I love about Thanksgiving, but my favorite by far i spending the day enjoying my family. It is pure joy to spend the day with my children and grandchildren. We play, cook together, watch football, play games, pray together, and laugh so much.

  29. Shirley Markuson says:

    I love the placecard holder, may have to figure out how it use it in a card. We do not always get to have Thanksgiving Dinner on Thanksgiving due to working in the retail world. But it is great to get together with daughters and grown grandson. Great ideas. Thanks

  30. Marie says:

    This year, Thanksgiving dinner is coming back to my house! The last few years, dinner has been at my daughter’s house with a lot of extra folks. My husband, who does all the cooking, decided he wanted to bring it back to our house and the more intimate event that it used to be.

  31. Sandy says:

    This year Thanksgiving will be a double joy for me. Thanksgiving this year will mark the halfway completion of my 2nd to last class for my Master’s. it has been an experience for this young “over 50” female :). The other joy is an annual recall of all the wonderful things, experiences and people I have encountered or that has helped me grow in the past year. It is a season to reflect and be thankful for our lives.

  32. Peggie says:

    The best part of Thanksgiving is going around the table and sharing what we’re thankful for…….. Ohhhhh, and the lumpy mashed potatoes with lots of gravy! ?

  33. Patti Leighton says:

    Good food not necessarily cooked throughout the year and company dropping by when they are in town!

  34. Joan Krebs says:

    My favorite part of Thanksgiving is when out-of-town family come to visit – that and leftover turkey!!

  35. Ann in PA says:

    My favorite part of Thanksgiving is having the entire family home for the long weekend and left over turkey! Yum!

  36. Anne Marie Kim says:

    I love getting to go see family for Thanksgiving. It was fun before and it’s more meaningful now that we have kids and get to pass on the tradition.

  37. Karan says:

    Thanksgiving is a time I usually get to craft a lot! I’m usually making gifts for office staff or family and friends. Or I could be working on my Christmas cards. Just a time of family, friends and crafting! What could be better than that?

  38. Sue H says:

    I love getting family and friends together to celebrate all we have to e thankful for and cooking a wonderful meal for all to enjoy

  39. Sandra Luthie says:

    This is our first Thanksgiving away from family in 33. Years! We just moved to San Antonio and we have invited some friends here to eat at our house. So I think I’ll make this card into placards for them! I attended my 1st Scrap Expo this year in VA and can’t wait for the one in Texas!

  40. Rhonda Rushing says:

    I look forward to Thanksgiving because family members get together and spend time with one another, this makes it a very special day.

  41. Cindy Caldwell says:

    Our daughter has moved back “home” after living away from us for about 11 years. It will be nice to have our daughter and her fiance and our son and his girlfriend and her son join us for Thanksgiving. I’m thankful for my family.

  42. CG says:

    I’m looking forward to all the delightful dishes that each one of my family members bring to contribute to our family meal.

  43. Melinda Milhorn says:

    Thanksgiving is the one Holliday that I get to have the whole family at my home. I love hosting, having family from all parts if the country. much of the time it is the only time of year we get to see some of them. WE all slow down so we can really enjoy our I’m together.

  44. Kathy says:

    I love the part of spending time with family. Being out of state i miss spending time with my 12 siblings. Never enough time to visit!

  45. Tammy signer-Holmes says:

    I enjoy having my family together. My favorite thing is that my sons college roomate is from Bermuda so he doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving. But watching him enjoy my cooking And he gets up early to go Black Friday shopping where we shop all day and then Jon, him and I go for pedicures and then watch soccer!! Love having him as part of my holiday

  46. Esther Miranda says:

    I love Thanksgiving because I love spending time with my family. As we all get older and have our extended family traditions, its always a great feeling going back to my parents house and celebrating the traditions we grew up with. Plus we have a turkey cook-off with at least 3 turkeys! So much fun being a judge!

  47. Deidra Leake says:

    I have a rather large family and we all live nearby. I spend time with them throughout the year. But especially at Thanksgiving we do just that. No matter how large the group gets (up to 45 people), we each have to stand in a circle while holding hands and tell what we are thankful and grateful for this year. From the littlest to the oldest we each get a turn. Everyone in my family along with friends love it. This is what giving Thanks is about, acknowledging it to God and one another.

  48. Mary Schultz says:

    Oh, I love that little place card, so cute!
    My favorite thing about Thanksgiving is being with family. It’s one of the few times of the year the whole family gets together, and there’s always lots of good food and laughter.

  49. Michelle Thao says:

    Turkey of course as any other time of the year turkey just don’t taste the same! Also, we (Hmong) celebrate our Harvest/New Year Festival during Thanksgiving break so I get to see extended families that I wouldn’t normally get to see the rest of the year.

  50. Nina Garcia says:

    This Thanksgiving Day my family is taking part in the Turkey Chase (2mile walk or 5k run) in Corpus Christi Texas. My daughter is coming in from Naples Florida, niece from Austin Texas, niece & brother from Premont Texas. I cannot wait to be surrounded by family at the event and then look forward to a nice turkey dinner and counting our blessings.

  51. Karen Erickson says:

    I love making pumpkin pie from scratch, no canned pumpkin!! My friends and family request
    me to make them! That makes me happy that they are happy!!

  52. Connie Ferguson says:

    I think that Thanksgiving makes me feel like a kid again. The wonderful smell coming from the kitchen! It’s not just the turkey. It’s the smell of sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, ginger, etc. just floating through the air. It’s hypnotic! And while you are under this spell, you are laughing and laughing at Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the peanuts gang on T.V. It doesn’t get any better than this.

  53. Nan Spier says:

    If the weather is nice, we gather as a family in the morning for a rousing game of pickleball! If the weather is rainy, we stay inside with a fire. The energy of 4 dogs (or more!), the family and their guests – it’s an adrenal rush. Love the savory smells of dinner cooking. Enjoy trying recipes from our guests and other family members. Always eat way too much, but a nice hike after dinner cancels out all the calories, right?

  54. Marianne Oakes says:

    I love Thanksgiving because it gives family and friends a time to be together and enjoy each other’s company while sharing a delicious meal. My family and I celebrate Thanksgiving at my mom’s house. Her house feels so warm and cozy when we’re all together. My sister makes the turkey, cousins bring the side dishes and beverages, and I make the pumpkin pies. Our mom just enjoys it all — she deserves it. I hope everyone has a very happy Thanksgiving!

  55. Mary Pat Proctor says:

    I love Thanksgiving every year because it is the one holiday where most of my family is able to get together–which is always good. This year is special because my son is having jaw surgery two days before Thanksgiving and my family is still coming to help me get through the stress of this surgery and to help me with cooking!! They are awesome!

  56. Linda Sanchez says:

    My favorite time of the year is Thanksgiving and Christmas. It brings family and friends and love ones together, it is a time to be thankful for everyone and everything in our lives.

  57. Jean Bullock says:

    My favorite thing about Thanksgiving is that it’s not about status or gift giving. It’s about family and sharing a meal together. Even the poorest of the family can contribute a little something. Even if the meal is mac and cheese, that’s OK because it’s the company that matters.

  58. Christie says:

    Love the turkey with stuffing, candied sweet potatoes, jello with cream cheese & fruit cocktail, vegetables, the homemade gravy from the turkey drippings. Deviled eggs as a snack before dinner while prep is going on. The champagne and/or apple cider to drink with the meal. The smell of scented candles in the room and watching TV and perhaps the nap afterwards AFTER the pumpkin pie, of course! Makes for a perfect holiday meal. By now, are you stuffed to the gills?

  59. Karen F. says:

    My fav thing about Thanksgiving is no gifts are involved! You gather together, eat and drink and enjoy your family and friends. No candy to pass out, no crazy shopping, no hunting for eggs etc. haha

  60. Michelle C says:

    My favorite thing about Thanksgiving is spending the holiday with family and eating the delicious meal!

  61. Laurie says:

    It’s all about family! This year I get to see my new 4 month old granddaughter, who I don’t see often because they live out of state.

  62. Andy says:

    I love that in the busy-ness of life, the family can find time to gather around the table together to just breathe and be thankful for time spent together!
