My husband's birthday fell on Thanksgiving this year, so I combined the two...and it turned out wonderful! I started cooking early in the morning, pies first then on to the dinner.
While the turkey was cooking, we had mimosas (my favorite) and Great Lakes Christmas Ale (his favorite). I also surprised him with a pumpkin pie (another of his favorites) with birthday candles.
Then sometime between the football and Christmas movies, we had our Thanksgiving dinner and desserts.
