Chad’s Favorite Thanksgiving Recipe: Sweet Potato Casserole

I love traditional Thanksgiving foods.  Turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, dumplings.  In fact, my mother and aunt share a dumpling recipe that is utterly ridiculous and I look forward to eating it every year.  Dough + salt + chicken= happiness, high cholesterol and about five miles on the treadmill.  But my absolute FAVORITE Thanksgiving food is Sweet Potato Casserole.  It is one part side order and one part dessert.  It is to food what the Snuggie is to the coach potato.  Pure, unadulterated warmth, comfort, bliss (and sugar)!  If I could find a way to puree this stuff and run it straight into my veins I would.  There are lots of recipes for it floating around (including Reba McEntire's), but here is my absolute favorite . . .

Favorite Broadway Highlights from Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade [Video]

I am not sure I have ever shared this with you all.  In fact, I think I have some close friends who don't even know this.  But every Thanksgiving Day, I make sure I get up and am plopped down in front of the TV to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.  Okay, go ahead.  Call me a dork!  But I love it and have since I was a kid.  And one of my favorite parts of the parade actually takes place before it begins.  I love watching the Broadway musical numbers that take place in front of Macy's about a half hour before the parade reaches the famous department store.  And here are some of my favorite past performances.  Sure, they're cheesy and everyone is lip-synching, but I can't help but to love them.  Check these out!

Chad’s Complete Guide to Holiday TV Specials

I love Christmas TV specials.  I always have.  Always will.  And every year about this time I start combing through the TV Guide and my online channel guides searching for my favorite holiday shows to see when they'll be on.  So, this year, I decided to compile everything in to a handy-dandy holiday viewing guide.  If you love Rudolph (which airs tonight, by the way) and Frosty and Charlie Brown as much as I do, you'll want to check this out!

Carsyn (Finally) Meets Santa Claus

It's about this time of year that I start preparing Carsyn to see Santa Claus. Yes, I prep my child for strangers dressed up as a character that I want to make her take a photo with...nothing wrong with that, ha! She is four and a half years old and has never taken a photo with Santa. We normally wave from really, really far back and then she tells me how "when I'm big like you Mommy, I'll get my picture with him then".

Now the memory-capturing mother that I am cringes a little inside every year. I just want her to have fun photos with Santa to look back at over the years and it just hasn't happened. Until this past weekend...
