American Thanksgiving in Canada

Family Hausfrau is heading to North North Dakota Canada tomorrow to spend the Thanksgiving Holiday with the Cleaver Family. The Hausfrau/Cleaver roadshow will consist of five children under the age of five and four adults waiting for bedtime.

Initially, Corey was concerned with the prospect of celebrating Thanksgiving in Canada. His primary concern was that he wouldn't be able to watch American football and would be stuck watching curling. Once he was assured that there would be some sort of football watching, he was totally up for it.

I, on the other hand, can't WAIT to get there. First of all, I love spending Thanksgiving with friends. Last year was the first and only year that we spent the holiday with family. Don't get me wrong--I love my family. But I love a drama free holiday even more. Here are some other reasons why Thanksgiving is going to ROCK:

1. There will be no stupid Thanksgiving crowds at the grocery store on Wednesday. Because Canada had their Thanksgiving a month ago, I will NOT be using the grocery cart as a battering ram to get through my last minute dinner shopping.

2. We won't have to worry about Black Friday as it will just be a normal Friday for all Canadians.

3. While the turkey is cooking, the children are napping, and the husbands are watching reruns of Degrassi High, June and I will be enjoying mani-pedis at the nearby salon. Imagine that sort of luxury on Thanksgiving. The added benefit of that because we will be at the salon, we won't be stuffing our faces prior to dinner . Pretty toes and less weight gain. God, I love Canada!

So the mani-pedi place is right near some AWESOME stores. Woo hoo!

Okay, so it's not even 9 am, and I just got off the phone with you--- can you tell I'm excited?

BTW, we'll save the beer shopping until you get here so Chris can introduce you to the wonders of buying liquor in Canada. It's no Rochester Beers of the World experience, beilieve me.

Sounds like a blast to me. Have a great Thanksgiving.

I'm still wrapping my head around Canada having had Thanksgiving already.

Wow--the blogging universe might just collapse with all that wittiness and hotness being mani- and pedi-ified in one place. Proceed with caution!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours and the Cleavers.

And may your husband have the chance to watch his American Football... I hear they cancelled all hockey and curling games to accomodate the holiday... so he is safe....

So freaking jealous. While I was stuck with my inlaws you were luxuriating in a parafin dip.

Sigh...

I'm moving to Canada.
