RubberDuckieCreations said...

Hmm my favorite Thanksgiving activity is sitting at the table as the kids play video games, the boys watch football and the women go through the newspaper ads and write out our Black Friday shopping map!

Thank you for this giveaway.

Besides eating...my family usually starts playing a game of some sort whether it be Catch Phrase or something on the Wii! So fun!

Amanda said...

Watching the Dallas Cowboys with an overly stuffed belly :]

becca said...

hmm...
my favorite Thanksgiving tradition is making the drive from Springfield to Kansas every year! my family is huge, crazy, amazing, and loving.
happy thanksgiving, rachel!
:)

craftattacks said...

if I'm not eating, I want to be napping. ha! Having two kiddos, though, that's usually hard to do. I'll probably be trying to keep them off of the dessert table, doing my best to convince them that naps are indeed gifts!

FruMaansen said...

If Thanksgiving was a danish holliday, I would spend it watching a ball game and eating my food in the sofa!

Kristen said...

We do Thanksgiving lunch...so my favorite afternoon activity is NAPTIME!...so then I can make room to start on the leftovers!

Bella Mia said...

making pecan tassies while watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade with my lovely mother!!!! :)

Sasha said...

Oh good lord after eating all that food, I go into food coma and can't really move. Which is why the only activity we, as a big greek family, can do is do what greeks do best.....talk. For hours and about everything. My personal favorite is listening to life stories of some of the older family members :)

Jordan Boesch said...

Dallas Cowboys!!!!!

Dee said...

if NZ had a thanksgiving afternoon, i think i'd spend it laying on the grass staring at the clouds talking about Nothing Much with my sisters while the kids imagine play in my mum's garden.
(yesplease!)

Mrs. Muffins said...

Sleeping? Hee hee... I'm only half kidding ;)

alissa said...

eating! :]

Julia Weaver said...

I just love being around family, talking and laughing. And sneaking little slivers of pumpkin pie...because if cut small enough the calories don't count.

Meagan said...

Cooking throughout the day, warming up for dinner (snacking), watching the parade followed by the dog show and miracle on 34th street. And of course, spending time with my family!

Lauren said...

besides eating??? is there anything else??

watching the cowboys game, wishing that it was the steelers playing because i hate the cowboys? :)

Petite Annabel said...

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the Netherlands.. But we celebrate Sinterklaa the 5th of December were you can eat as much candy and hot chocolate as you can handle!
And now I can't win one of the giveaways... :'(

Erin said...

in the past few years we've made it a tradition to hike around zion's canyon while the turkey is in the oven. we then eat dinner when we get home around 5 or 6.

Apple Scrapper said...

writing out the placecards, it's been my job since I was seven! :)

Karisse said...

OH by far the favorite was when I was little and the "cousins" would try to run off and pay so we wouldn't have to help clean up. It never worked. :) Happy Thanksgiving!

rosemaryx said...

Ori said...

making stuffing! and dressing up all old time-y!

Anne said...

We don't celebrate thanksgiving in Holland but no doubts that my favorite activity definitely must be the eating part :-)

fridica said...

I've only been to two Thanksgivings in my life, since I'm Croatia, but the food was unrivalled, so I'd have to go with eating as well :)

Emily said...

Truth I think my favorite Thanksgiving activity is the nap. My family and I always end up taking a nap at some point on the big day. I also love the cooking though, I am hosting Thanksgiving at my home for the second time this year and I really love the cooking.

in company with sparkles said...

Hm...drinking wassail and giving thanks with all gathered :)

Curtis Ernesto Phewsy Asexual said...

pumpkin pie. then more pie. and a slice of turkey on top. then passing out with my cats on my belly, a rubbish film and family either side of me.

k. davis said...

taking the longest nap EVER!!! followed by a game of touch football! Happy Almost Thanksgiving!!!

Cynthia said...

Is it wrong to say a nap? After all that food? Glorious!

Tracey said...

I love curling up on the couch with a good book or a new knitting project on Thanksgiving afternoon :) And then eating even more punkin pie!

Kendra said...

Awesome! My favorite Thanksgiving afternoon activity is drinking hot apple cider and playing games with family :)

shannonbear said...

Oh my word, taking a nap after we eat Thanksgiving dinner! I do it every year!!

S said...

My favorite Thanksgiving afternoon activity would be playing a game. Either outside or in depending on the weather

Iconic Betty said...

Macaroni and cheese and turkey overdose. Usually half past noon, the authorities are called because I've failed to respond to proper stimuli. They check my breathing and find my heart rate is slow and weak because of the high rate of cheddar poisoning. My pupils fail to dilate because high tryptophan exposure. When they ask me my name, I gobble gobble. When they open my hands, they're oozing butter. However grotesque, its a perfect ending to a wonderful Thanksgiving afternoon.

Amanda said...

I don't know about favorite, but it has become our little family tradition, since our extended family lives ten hours away, we are usually just the six of us on Thanksgiving. So after dinner and a little nap, we always build a gingerbread village to ring in the next season. The kids love it!

kiwikate said...

I am from New Zealand, and right now I am living in London, so I have never celebrated Thanksgiving!

I think, if I did, my favourite would be the yummy looking food, and spending time with my family :)

Leah Dawn said...

Baking pumpkin pie of course :)

Stefan, Sarah and Lukka said...

my favorite thanksgiving afternoon activity is EATING! Really, I don't stop...into the night! :)

Sarah M

Dixie said...

After we all eat and dishes are cleaned up, all the ladies/girls are all at the table looking at all the sales paper for the Black Friday shopping.

Rita Jo said...

Thanksgiving afternoon wouldn't be the same without the "fauxtobooth" - we set up a background of sorts and the tripod and snap funny shots of us being goofy with some sort of silly prop. This year I'm making felt mustaches, but last year it was a crazy collection of sunglasses. Definitely a good way to keep up on the family portraits ;)

schmashmelia said...

Going for a walk, then coming back home for some leftovers :)

Liv said...

Playing football with my family is my favorite activity.

LindseyRae said...

We, as the younger generation of ladies in the family, have been trying to take over cleaning for the older generation of women (who also cook). Most of the after-dinner activities include shooing those women away from the kitchen sink.

All of the giveway items are lovely.

amy a said...

Our entire big, crazy family gets together for two days, and it is lovely to just spend time together!

the perfect pear said...

my favorite would be eating! haha

While the turkey is in the oven and most of the food prep has been done my family likes to sit at the table playing games all afternoon. Its nice to relax and hang out all together.

Tamara

Mish said...

We don't really do much in the afternoon. We wake up super early to get everything started. So I am going to say my favorite is watching the parade and "tearing" the bread for stuffing. This year is the first year my 7,6 and 4 year old really want to help out. I am super excited to share that tradition with them. :)

Cory said...

Well after our big meal, I just love to talk & relax with family.

Fantastic giveaway!!

Heidi said...

CupcakeCatie said...

Ragazzarte said...

We play board games... Scrabble Risk, the game of Life, or the perennial favorite... Catchphrase!!!!

Fritzi Marie said...

My family goes to Knott's Berry Farm and we ride roller coasters. Then we get a cheesy photo magnet made. My Mommy showccases them on her fridge. She always has them print "The Queen and her Royal Court" on it. Too Cute!

Happy Thanksgiving Wishes To You.

love love,
Fritzi Marie

kat ann said...

im a bit of a tomboy so my favorite activity at thanksgiving (besides eating) is playing football in grandmothers yard with the boys =)

EB Smith said...

well...after a HUGE & delicious Thanksgiving lunch...i usually like to let myself slip into a food coma and take a nice nap before coming back to the table for another round at dinner...ahhh...sweet gluttony :)

Jessa said...

The whole family snuggles up on the couch and pillows and we watch our first Christmas movie...Home Alone, A Christmas Story, etc.

It's the best way to usher in the Christmas season and digest all our yummy food :)

Thanks for the giveaway!

Courtney DePasquale said...

after we eat my entire tribe of family and friends gathers to play charades. Always men against women (the women always win!). There is always someone new at our house and this is how they get initiated into my wild family :)

Kelly said...

We usually play a game (31 or trivial pursuit) after the eating slows down...so much fun!

Michelle said...

Napping and getting out the Christmas decorations...

bsmithhill said...

My favorite T-giving afternoon activity is snoozing on the couch, with the TV on in the background...if my husband or other male family members are in the room, it'll probably be on football, if it's just me, then it will be on Food Network! Then, after a snooze, I will attempt to take a walk with the dogs, then come back home for round 2 of eating!

Melissa said...

My favorite Thanksgiving Activity is usually the movie marathon that occurs after the food and for the turkey coma that will occur, but this year it will be the swimming in my moms new pool!

Thanks for the awesome giveaways!!

MandiCoulter said...

eating :)

Mandy said...

My favorite Thanksgiving afternoon activity is relaxing on the couch and visiting with my family!

PeaceMama said...

wow!!!! favorite activity would be taking a walk after the meal. (then returning home for more pumpkin pie and coffee!!!)) thanks for this generous giveaway and for all the love on your blog!!!

Brooke Fortson said...

After eating, my family goes around the table and says what they are thankful for. I can't wait for my turn this year, as I have a new baby boy that I am head over heels for. Last year I was prego and an absolute hormone disaster during all of the Thanksgiving speeches. So glamorous.

Ms.Curdy said...

Card games with family. Nap. And Dessert. Perfect afternoon!
Love the prizes! <3
saraholson@live.com

angela said...

I like going for a long walk after a big Thanksgiving meal or doing any physical activity. There's nothing that makes me feel more uncomfortable than a big food baby in my tummy!

Lauren said...

Here is the plan: help mom cook, eat, football, sleep, eat <3

The few minutes of quiet in the car, between visiting our parents. The day is always so hectic!

Setting the table--it always looks so pretty.

Koree said...

my favorite Thanksgiving activity (besides the eating, of course) is sitting around the living room with all of my family and just talking about life. <3

Sandi Edgar said...

Chase the dogs around our Uncle's property and make them stop scaring the horses!

imjen said...

I like the peacefulness that comes after all the eating is finished. The kids usually retreat to playing, hubby chills on the couch, and since everyone is content, I can knit or work on a project.
These giveaways are fantastic, I am so excited!

becks said...

I love hanging out, talking with family, and going through old photo albums!

My family has an annual poker game-usually I lose-but its soooo fun!

Kelly said...

EATING!!! then napping and watching football with my brother!

Jessi said...

I'm Canadian so our Thanksgiving is past already - and I don't think it is quite as big as the American one!
but my fav part is obviously the eating!

JenCoen said...

watching football! it's a family tradition that will be even more difficult this year since my dad isn't with us this year (he always ruled the channel changer).

Amy said...

Crafting! My sisters and I have a tradition of always sewing or making something for the Christmas season after our Thanksgiving dinner. love it!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Carrie Rosalind said...

I love to eat and then just relax!! :)

hi, it's hanna. said...

playing games (and eating of course) and then napping (or rather falling into a coma) due to all this eating

Joyeful said...

so I really just love to eat all day.... :)

and now that I have four kids I love to snuggle on the couch with all my babies and our full tummies and pretend that a nap is possible

DanielleJeanne said...

My perfect Thanksgiving day would be
parade in the morning, cooking while the men watch football, eating, then playing cards and looking for Black Friday deals afterward.

Jessica said...

we love to watch a movie or play a card game or a game on the wii after thanksgiving dinner!

ronda said...

My family is pretty good about eating ALL day long on Thanksgiving, but we usually wind down with a good game of speed uno & spoons and then we make a plan for black Friday shopping. Can't wait!

Leigh said...

My favorite afternoon activity is playing front-yard football with my husband, his brothers and their significant others. Usually I whine a little, because it's cold, but it's great to get the exercise & have the laughs!

Jen G. said...

Love that necklace! Everyone else will probably sleeping but I will be knitting! Yeah!

the dull mirror said...

Watching a movie together, and playing games late into the night. And eating all the leftovers. We also draw names to get each other 1 gift, and start making Christmas preparations.

suitecheeks said...

i love sitting with the other women in my fammily and going thru the sales ads for black friday.

olivia

Michele said...

Thanksgiving afternoons in our house usually involve napping (for me) with the Dallas Cowboys (for Dad, and all the older men in the family) playing in the background. Along with another serving of pie!

Hope said...

Poker!!! Every Thanksgiving for as long as i can remember! I used to love sitting eye level with the table and watch my dad, all my uncles, and Pa play, and now im old enough to jump in on the fun!! :)

the whyte house said...

we celebrate my daughter's birthday early(her b-day is 12/10) with our out of town family. having a dec bday is tough and they're typically forgotten(i should know...mine's 12/1). we know it's the one day that everyone will be able to celebrate with her!

joolee said...

taking a walk in the afternoon chill - all bundled up! i have MANY family memories of our fun walks!

Occasional Threads said...

We're starting a new tradition this year--playing Apples to Apples!

-Trin

Walk With Me Down BayBeeStep Lane said...

Game of dominos and a good nap!

Holly F. said...

My family takes a walk after every Thanksgiving dinner. It always makes me feel better about that piece of pumpkin pie!

With Love, Jamie said...

Taking a nice little walk with my family before the big meal :)

Jess (hellowifeonline.com) said...

After a week of prepping, two days of cooking, and many weeks of anticipating, the meal usually only lasts about 30 minutes, and then we all start dropping into nap time like flies! My favorite part? Sneaking extra "seconds" (or thirds!) while everyone else is asleep... no one is the wiser! :)

Kelley said...

Hanging out with family! There's nothing better:)

Katie@a mom, a wife, and a me said...

I enjoy some grown up conversation with the family while my kids get to run off with the cousins they dont get to see often enough!! (And I secreatly enjoy not being the one who has to cook or clean!)

Crissy said...

taking lots of pictures! I love taking pictures!

middleofthetable said...

NAPPING!!

Opy said...

I like reading, while everyone else has a long nap! :D

Amanda said...

After dinner we love to watch a holiday movie or go out to the movies.

STEENIE said...

i think its so cute when after thanksgiving dinner we go to a movie, aunts, uncles, everybody!

laurie-beth said...

Wow, those prizes look amazing! I'm a Canadian so my Thanksgiving has already passed but my absolute favorite thing to do after the turkey has settled is to make crafts with my little cousin!

laurie-beth*

Katie said...

I love the assortment of people we have through our house on Thanksgiving. I guess we're the family that adopts people for the day. I love it :)

Laura K A said...

Sitting at the coffee table playing dominos and eating home made hummus and chips, drinking fun seasonal beer with knitted mini sweater beer cozies ha ha, with the love of my life, listing to holiday tunes.

Holley said...

My favorite thanksgiving activity is when my family and I sit around the table right after we finish the delicious meal my mom and I make and tell each other a few of the great many things we're thankful for. It's a great time for all of us to reflect on the amazing lives we're all living and realize all over again how lucky we are to get to be together. Unfortunately this year I'm in London, but I'll still Skype in after dinner!

bradee said...

oh my goodness! i love every activity that make up thanksgiving afternoon! cooking, football(much to my girls dismay!) eating, lying around stuffed like the turkey was moments earlier! lol
its my favorite day!

kimberly said...

group nap :)

Matt and Carolyn said...

My favorite thanksgiving is my family's annual "Turkey Swap". It's like secret santa, but we all know we're going to be broke around christmas, so all of the adults in the family swap gifts after turkey dinner(while all the kids are out of sight,locked in the basement playing of course:). Come christmas time we get to focus on the little ones! My mom and her siblings started this tradition when they first started having kids and as adults now we LOVE it so much! P.S. I LOVE your blog! absolutely fabulous in every way:)

for the past few years our family has done a photobooth at Thanksgiving with pilgrim and indian props and everything and it is a total blast - at the end of the evening we have a ton of fun family photos and then of course it's time to watch Christmas Vacation..can't wait!! This year my husband and I made a teepee using your tutorial for the booth, I will send you photos when were done!

Amber said...

I love sitting around the table drinking coffee and eating pie after a big meal. It is so fun to catch up with everyone I might not have seen in awhile.

Carson said...

I'd have to say that my favorite Thanksgiving activity is reheating the thanksgiving lunch leftovers with the family and cuddling in the den while watching football : )

Chelseabird said...

My favorite Thanksgiving afternoon activity is to go to the movies. It's so simple, but it's something we've done for years and years and I just love seeing a good movie with my family on a holiday (we do it on Christmas too)!
