Thanksgiving plans

I have worked as a live in companion for adults that have developmental and intellectual disabilities for 7 yrs now. So every holiday I'm basically working. I have always included the individual/s that I support in our festivites. This year I was talking with my supervisor and we now have more individuals that either don't have families involved or just don't have families. So they will be staying at their agency home during the holidays. So we are planning on having a big Thanksgiving meal for the indidivduals and their staff in the Reception Hall at my church.  I'm really excited about this. In years past I've taken orders and made enough food for individuals and staff. My husband would then deliver it out to the various houses. Doing it this way I will have a lot of help with the meal and the clean up.


So what are your Thanksgiving plans?

 That's great that you involve them in your holiday festivities!

We thought about visiting family "back home" but I'm not convinced that's going to work out. That would mean we celebrate here with our immediate family. I don't mind that at all though.

Glad you are able to do that for them....Not sure how things will go...but I would like to make some food and watch the Macy's Parade.

were going to my grandparents house, then we'll probably go to the ghost town the next morning and either go home that day or the day after
