We have about a million things to be thankful for, and you guys are at the top of our list. Thanks for caring to drop in and see what’s going on at our house. Much Turkey Day love coming atcha. Especially from Burger. He always looks so dapper in a photoshopped pilgrim hat.
Now go stuff your face and stop messing around on the computer. The challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to be unable to button your pants by the day’s end. We’re already hard at work on that over here…

Happy Thanksgiving to you, beautiful, beautiful kids! All the blessing upon you from Romania!
Happy Thanksgiving! I’m in Canada and we’re all insanely jealous up here about the fact that our southern neightbours get the day off to feast and be generally festive. Enjoy your day!
Since I have already made 2 separate Thanksgiving Day meals I can kick back, watch the parade and go out for our Thanksgiving Day meal:) OK, I have to make cookies and corn bread to take. Check out interesting

Be honest, John is breaking out Sherry’s old maternity pants just to eat more pumpkin pie. You can tell us. We won’t judge! haha
Great idea! We’re both totally down with doing that. Too bad my pants are about a foot too short for John…
That picture is too adorable! Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Turkey Day!!
Christine Trebendis says

Are you hosting “The Feast” today? Please share some cute Petersik traditions!
Happy 1st Thanksgiving Miss Clara!
I am studying abroad in Oxford, and I am definitely homesick during these American holidays.
I am so thankful for your blog though which makes me feel connected to your wonderful growing family and reminds me of my own family (we all are ‘geeks’ too). You both are wonderful people (I can definitely tell) and I enjoy reading your blog every day! It encourages me when I am in the middle of an essay crisis.
Thank you for being so open and welcoming all of your blog fans into your life!
Happy Thanksgiving YHL!
Thank you guys for the daily reads and for the positivity. Happy Thanksgiving!
Another Canadian super jealous of your holiday-ing fun!! Have a great thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving John, Sherry, Clara & Burger! Love coming here everyday and receiving your inspiration.
Happy Thanksgiving from Canada!
Do you guys plan to shop on Black Friday? Have you ever gone shopping on Black Friday? Experiences? In Canada Boxing Day is our big shopping day, I was wondering if they are similar…
Enjoy all the delicious food!
Black Friday shopping is crazy! To some people it’s an all day sporting event- but we’re the kind of people who avoid stores at all costs and just enjoy more family and food.

Happy Thanksgiving! The holiday has come and gone for us in Canada, but right now I wish it hadn’t happened yet. I would seriously love a feast right now. Your challenge to not be able to button up your pants reminds me of a time when we were having dinner with some friends and I wore some pants with a snap instead of a button. We ate SO much food and about part way through the meal the snap un-snapped. Seriously, and I couldn’t get it to stay snapped the rest of the night.
English girl here very jealous of your extra days off for feasting and fun. We just call today Thursday over here! Enjoy
Thanks for being such a great inspiration to my creativity. Because of your site, I have successfully painted the old lady paneling in my living room and gave my kitchen a facelift. Thanks for your quick response on decorating ideas!!!! I would have a shabby house without y’all!!!
Have a great day and I am up for the challenge of not being able to button my pants!!
Thank you for all you do to bring beauty, inspiration and happiness to our lives every day! So happy to have found you on this big world wide web!

Today is a normal day for us Brits, what exactly do you celebrate thanks giving for? we were pondering about it at work today….
It’s basically a big meal with family gathered around a huge turkey with tons of stuffing and cranberry sauce. And everyone usually goes around the table and says what they’re thankful for and then stuffs their faces. Here’s the wikipedia definition for a more historical account of the holiday: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiving
In DC for Thanksgiving and will be going to IKEA tomorrow for a little shopping before heading home to Richmond. Need anything ?
Haha, we’re good thanks!
happy thanksgiving! enjoy your last holiday in your first home, and love that you put up your tree btw!
Happy Thanksgiving from the Netherlands!

Nota Supermom says
I’m unable to re-button my pants. Does that count?
Yes. Welcome to the club.
I’m so thankful to you both for opening Casa Petersik up to us all, it’s done virtually but felt authentically. Stay über adorable!

Happy Thanksgiving Day!
Krista Haws says
Happy Thanksgiving you guys!!! Hope your day was great!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends from over here in Australia :)
Hope you had fun reading all your “thanks messages” We did! Thanks for the idea:) Hope you all enjoyed Clara’s first Thanksgiving!
Aw thanks for all the sweet wishes everyone! We had a great day and hope you all did as well!
Didn’t read through the comments to see if anyone else had this thought, but Burger looks like a leprachaun. And totally adorable!!! Love your blog – I’m so addicted. Best wishes for the holiday season!
John realized that after the fact! I blame the green stripe on the hat. Should have made it orange or something- haha.
Jenn L @ Peas and Crayons says
Hope you had a fantabulous turkey day!!!!!!!!!!! <3

Boy Burger, you are looking right debonair for Thanksgiving. I wonder how you like your new house. That little girl is growing up, are you getting along with her??
Thinking of You with fondness,
Well, I haven’t seen my new house yet, but I can’t wait. Mom and dad tell me that I will love it and promise lots of long bug hunts in my new backyard. As for my sister, she’s the best. She’s always kind enough to drop a little bit of her food down from the highchair for me to try. And she’s the perfect size to cuddle up to for naps.
Burger could pass for a leprechaun! Might have to use that photo again on April 1.
