Too True Tuesday

One of my blog buddies, Essie, has a blog segment called Too True Tuesday and the subject of this weeks TTT is, your least favorite holiday and why. And just for fun and balance, your favorite holiday and why.

My least favorite holiday is Halloween. It's not so much the holiday that I dislike as much as the social pressure I get because my kids do not usually get to go trick or treating. Our annual family vacation starts the Saturday after Halloween and so I am usually just too overwhelmed to do the whole costume and parade around the neighborhood thing.

My favorite is Thanksgiving because of this, (Originally posted last November here)

My immediate family is pretty small... Mom, Dad, 1 younger brother and myself. All of my extended family live out of state and we just don't get together like we used to. About 6 years ago, I asked my then 10 year old what he wanted for thanksgiving dinner and he jokingly said, "grilled cheese sandwiches and french fries" our then favorite meal. We kinda looked at each other and thought, hmmmm. And so our family tradition began. Believe me, I have heard much criticism about it, but it's what we like and it is fun and the kids love it and so do I. To see pictures, click on the "here" link.

This year, Thanksgiving will be celebrated here in Nassau, so mom cooks like crazy. And Essie...we are having ham!

ech! I can barely type from jealousy!
It would be my favorite holiday too if we had ham, or grilled cheese!
The Hub and I used to have pizza but that was before we had the kids.

I wish my boys liked grilled cheese sandwiches. I have no idea why they don't adore them like I do-- come on, butter, bread, cheese, and grilled! Perfection!
