we are going to Las vegas to celebrate with my husbands family. My son will stay with his new Grandma-in-law while we stay in a hotel
I think it is great to help with the kids who have no place to go either. When i lived in germany, I used to have a huge thanksgiving feast for all the soldiers who had no one. They really thanked me for that. my turn out was normally 15-18 GI's, and I was 19 years old, cooking for all these guys.
I know that people appreciate gestures like that and am so happy to see others show kindness like you and yours are doing.
