    What are you thankful for that you won't be mentioning at Thanksgiving dinner for one reason or another? (Keep it PG if you can.)

    I'd never say it at Thanksgiving in front of her parents, but dang is my wife smoking hot.

    (I hope my wife has similar thread tastes as Daserop's wife)

    This Thanksgiving will be the first time I meet my girlfriend's parents, and I won't be mentioning how thankful I am for my girlfriends (yes, plural).

    She has let me know that things aren't serious between us and we shouldn't consider our relationship exclusive, but I can't imagine she would be thrilled with the amount of time I have been spending with someone else.

    My wife's sense of adventure and risk taking. Especially when family is around. :jiggy:

    Me too. I definitely out kicked my coverage in that area! I'm just hoping my wife never realizes how true that is.

    Also very thankful for turkey, mashed pototoes (I left the "e" in there in honor of Dan Quayle) and hanging out around the Turkey fryer in the freezing cold while drinking a beer with my family members.

    Thankful for Angie's OT threads. Maybe that's "on the grid," though. :smile:

    You're too kind - they're usually sort of selfish, I like to get ideas for things. :wink: So I'm grateful for you all contributing.

    Last Thanksgiving was spent by myself here in Ames. This time around I'll be spending it with family.

    Call me a prude, but I just can't get in the mood with family watching. :shrug:

    I am thankful that Mess won't be the OC next year and that I get to spend the day with my wife's hot sisters.
