15 Ways to Celebrate Thanksgiving at Home

We love to celebrate holidays, and in our house, Thanksgiving is a favorite.  We enjoy time together with family and good food to eat, but most importantly, we enjoy a no-rush day (we all bring something for the meal, and our host enjoys the meal prep so it’s a win/win for us).

While a relaxed holiday with nothing to do is exactly what we adults like, it’s not always a pleasant experience for everyone.  You know what I’m talking about. It’s not relaxing to hear, “I’m bored,” “When do we eat?” or even “Let me help. Let me help!”  (Which you most certainly can do, it’s the whining that is hard to handle!)

If your family is even a little bit similar to mine, you know that I am not joking.  Knowing that these attitudes are very likely, we simply need to have a plan in our back pocket.  So here’s a list to help make 2017 Thanksgiving a satisfying holiday for everyone.

Membership – The No-Clutter Gift of Together Time

I think, like a lot of parents, I dream of having a home that is more of a cozy little landing pad for our adventures than a storage facility for our stuff. So I have been collecting up ideas for clutter-free gifts of adventure through membership to museums and other fun places.

We’ve added a few more options this year, and all memberships have been verified and updated for 2017. November and December are the time to think about memberships, because several places offer pre-holiday or end-of-the-year discounts.

Hello Grandparents – Membership is a Great Gift Idea!

If you are an out-of-town grandparent, membership gifts are ideal. Your grandchildren will look forward to your visits so you can enjoy your gift together; plus they will enjoy it with their parents the rest of the year. Furthermore, your children will tell all their friends that you are so much cooler than the grandparents who bought loud, battery-powered, plastic toys that end up in the garbage heap we call a toy box. Trust me on this. Read More
