Thanksgiving travel is always a crapshoot. With flights canceled in New York and New Jersey and trains jampacked, my family of five – including three kids ages eight, six and two – opted to stay home to celebrate.
I bought all the trappings for a vegetarian Thanksgiving celebration – plus a turkey for the meat eaters – on Tuesday, the day before the storm hit. As the first flakes started to fly, I began slicing apples and mashing potatoes in preparation for the big feast.
On Thanksgiving Day, the kids took over meal prep.
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade played in 4K while the kids cooked.
After the turkey went in the oven, my eight year old made holiday gifts for the whole family on her brand new Sew Cool Sewing Machine.
When she discovered she could sew using regular felt, all three kids went nuts with #SewCoolWorld projects.
After gobbling down the dinner and raving about how delicious it was (except for my picky eater, who ate carrots), the whole family took a traditional Thanksgiving nap.
