Haven't you heard about Tailgating Thanksgiving?
Well surely some where, some one has done this?
They just didn't blab about it like I'm gonna do, lol.
This weekend we had a blast, and may have started a new family tradition.
We got together with our family for a Thanksgiving Camping Trip.
The Menu for Saturday Night was... Thanksgiving Dinner.
So naturally we had to make some table centerpieces from our lovely trip.
My mom brought some paint, feathers and some other fun things to decorate with.
In past camping trips with my mom, we have painted rocks, kinda an old tradition. My Grandmother is an artist, and she collected rocks and painted them. Her rocks have been found all over the United States here and there in Antique Shops/Malls. Its neat to find them and as tempted as we have been to purchase them, we let them sit there for another soul to find them to bring joy to their lives. Hey we've got her better paintings and rocks.
When I was in my 20's my mom started the painting rocks tradition and my kids now love this tradition.
So when she came up with the idea of painting the rocks like turkeys, we were all on board.
My mom and cousin thought of the idea of incorporating the pine cones as well for their heads, they found the rocks and the pine cones at the park we stayed in.
We all made very unique ones as you can see. Mine is the bottom right corner.
For dinner, well... no one was smart enough to bring extra tables, except my cousin. So how in the heck would we all be able to sit together to eat, and have room for the food?
Tailgating style of course, duh. LOL!!!
The leaves in that were already in the bed of the truck just made it feel more like a Thanksgiving dinner, lol.
We ended up calling it our Redneck Thanksgiving!
No matter how red our necks are though, the dinner was fabulous!
And what's a Thanksgiving without some football, games and lounging around?
