Vintage November

I love this time of year. Here are some cool vintage Thanksgiving pictures I came across on the web.

This one in particular is the same decoration that my mom hung every year. I love it! I wish I could find it somewhere.

Every kid loves to take a pic with the turkey!! I loved waking up to the smell of the turkey in the oven. My husband does ALL the cooking on Thanksgiving. I wake up and the house smells so good. He makes the BEST stuffing and all I have to do is clean up the mess. I guess I can't expect him to do it all, can I?

I always make sure to DVR the holiday episodes of the old TV shows. I love watching them with my family. They don't make TV like they used to. 

I Love Lucy. I never miss an episode. Our kids will sit and watch it with us. Not many shows on today where you can sit and watch as a family. 

Thanksgiving isn't the same without The Macy's Day Parade. Its my favorite thing to have on during the day, we decorate for Christmas while my husband cooks. Its our little family tradition. Here is a picture of Betty White and Lorne Greene.

I love the old vintage ads. Everyone loves Disney and Mickey. Our kids will watch all these old cartoons.

This was on TV today and I set the DVR so I could watch it later. I never watched the series when it was on, I would love to get it on DVD and watch the whole thing.

How cute is Shirley Temple? I think she is the cutest thing. Our daughter loves watching her sing and dance. I wish more shows were on today like that.

Here is another cartoon we don't miss. We love Charlie Brown, and we especially love the holiday episodes.

Lucy baking. How many of you bake a ham with Thanksgiving dinner? My parents always have a turkey and a ham. I am content with just the turkey. We love the leftovers. Nothing better than a turkey and mayo sandwich.

This is one of my favorite covers of the Post. I love how the son is sitting and helping with the preparations for dinner.

Well I hope this holiday season is a wonderful one for everybody!

  2. We usually have turkey and ham on Thanksgiving but this year it will just be me, mom, and Jerry sooooooooooo we decided to only go for the good stuff. Chicken and Dressing and pie!!!

  3. Eating animals is not a necessity for survival. It is a result of gluttony and lack of imaginative thought for cooking. #GoVegan
