Thanksgiving...a little different this year!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
This year Thanksgiving will look at little different for the Whittens. Jon is working- most of his employees wanted the day off so Jon agreed. He is such an awesome boss! We have been together for almost 8 years and married for almost 6 and he has never worked a holiday so I am trying to be understanding. I know that his employees are very thankful to not have to work, and it is really a small thing overall.
He will work 9-9 tomorrow, and I will do the visits with family by myself. I am grateful to see my family, but I will miss my husband something terrible. However, I am looking forward to the drive to Tuscaloosa and Gordo...lots of me time to sing loudly! Of course my mom and I will start our Black Friday shopping tomorrow night and well into to Friday.
Black Friday shopping is a tradition that my mom and I have done for years...and most of the time there really isn't anything that we are going to get we just can not let it pass us by without joining in the fun. Black Friday for us is like hunting this time of year for the men in our family! It's a must!!!
My Grandmother has said this year will be the last year that we do Thanksgiving at their house so that is little sad, but I am sure we will find a way to get together. I have lunch with my mom's side of the family, and dinner with my daddy and family. Tonight we celebrate Thanksgiving with Jon's family which I am sure will be fun. It seems changes are happening so we might as well embrace them and make the most of it.
The Holidays just seem to be a little different this year. As much as I am looking forward to this years holidays...I am so anticipating 2013!!!! Already so many things planned...exciting things! 

I hope your Thanksgiving is amazing, and that you find the time you spend with your family to be sweet filled with lots of memories. I know the Whittens have so much to be thankful for...more than we deserve!
