Joe and I are newlyweds, so last Thanksgiving we were honeymooning in Disney World. At the time, we decided that we'd go there every year but the **guilt** set in and now we're traveling to my mom's on Thanksgiving. So, we don't really have any of our own yet.
At my moms, though, they do an all-out Thanksgiving with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, appetizers, dessert, homemade bread...you name it, they do it. But on Christmas, they keep it simple - good appetizers, soups, sandwiches, and desserts. So, it's a nice balance.
