    I'm planning on going shopping with some friends, so I might treat us to lunch :)

  1. Less than a month ago, one of my coworkers lost her mother to cancer. She only moved to this state to be closer to her mom. She and her daughter have no other family here, so I invited them to come over for Thanksgiving.

  1. Kim Baker said...:

    I plan to help my mom prepare Thanksgiving dinner for our family.

  1. I plan on doing what I always plan on doing. Baking what's requested of me. So far I've been asked to bake a coconut cake, cherry pie, and cherry brownie bite cakes. It's the best way to show my family I care and appreciate them. Food. ;)

  1. planning to cook for some people this thanksgiving. :)

  1. holdenj said...:

    I plan on helping with dessert, so my mother in law can concentrate on her specialties!

  1. Misti said...:

    Tell my family how grateful I am for them. Maybe help my Grandmother cook Thanksgiving dinner. She always does it by herself. Thank you so much for this giveaway. It's such a good one. I hope everyone really appreciates what they have.

  1. I'm definitely going to be cooking for my family. This year we are going to be home with just us and th kids, so it should be much more quiet than with the big large family.

    I REALLY want to add this book to my collection -- I won signed copies of the first two, so it would be great to have all three! Thanks for participating :)

    Here's my gratitude giveaway!

  1. Marie said...:

    I am cooking and cleaning for my mother. Thanks for the giveaway!

  1. erin said...:

    thanks for sharing such an awesome giveaway! I plan on catching up with family :) Work also does a food drive for a local shelter and it's a lot of fun as all the departments get a bit competitive for a good cause. It's judged by weight so it's fun to see what people bring in to "cheat". Last year, someone in finance donated what seemed like 1/2 a cow... seriously... it was like over 100 pds of meat. We all cried fowl but couldn't begrudge the "cheat".

  1. Tiffany H said...:

    I will be inviting a neighbor over for dinner. Doesn't look like she has kids and is often alone, so I'm gonna make sure she's got some cheer on Thanksgiving.

  1. Tabathia said...:

    I plan on cooking dinner for my parents

  1. Grampy said...:

    I plan to spend Thanksgiving helping serve dinner to the homeless and indigent, at the Gospel Mission.

  1. deasuluna said...:

    I will be going home to my mother's and cooking her and my siblings a full Thanksgiving dinner. So this year she can put her feet up and relax! :)

  1. Jennifer said...:

    I think I will try to be extra kind.

  1. For this Thanksgiving, I'm donating some books to a friend.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway, I'm so excited to read Cress!

  1. TayteH said...:

    I plan to be the family this year at grandparents' house. Thank you!

  1. I haven't thought that far ahead, but the first thing that came to mind is that we're skipping our family Thanksgiving to go to do Thanksgiving with a friend and her family while her husband is deployed overseas. Other than sharing the making of the meal, I'm not really 'doing' more than hanging out with friends.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity. I love the Lunar Chronicles and thanks for the chance to win the latest.

  1. Anonymous said...:

    I plan to volunteer at my local animal shelter and cook a great (my first) Thanksgiving dinner for my boyfriend! Thank you for this amazing giveaway!

  1. Chelsea B. said...:

    I hope to do something small but meanful-- help my mom in the kitchen to cook dinner.

  1. I am going to make enough sugar-free desserts for my children to satisfy their cravings for sweets. I'm also going to love my family, friends, and those around me with all my heart.

  1. I plan on volunteering my help to my brother who makes thanksgiving dinner every year. :)

  1. This Thanksgiving, I plan to help at least one person who needs it.

  1. I am actually going to be super busy. My boyfriends Grandma had to be put into a nursing home this year. We are still doing Thanksgiving over there, but it will be hectic. In years past his aunt has been in charge, but she has her hands full with his grandma. So I am helping out by cooking the deserts and some other small dishes. We've split it up among the women of the family so turkey is being done by someone else!

  1. Cindi said...:

    My family helps each other every day so I can't specifically pinpoint one day:) My dad works on everyone's cars, my mom watches all of our kids, I help my sister with her college homework, my sister knits quilts for all the new babies in the family, etc. We believe in taking care of each other!!

    Cooking thanksgiving dinner for my entire family.

  1. Nicole said...:

    I am cooking my first Thanksgiving meal this year. I am so excited!

  1. I will have my hands full like every thanksgiving trying to prepare all the food. My grandma has alzheimers so she can't cook. My brother's wife doesn't know how to cook and my mom has severe nerve damage to both hands so she can't either. My sister in law won't eat a lot of things so everyone generally wants different things so i wind up making a lot of different things! I guess mine is cooking because I get extremely stressed trying to get all the food ready and this year is going to be worse because I just found out I have celiac and haven't gotten used to cooking gluten free yet. Instead of stuffing though I am making dirty rice.

  1. Krista said...:

    Washing lots of dishes. Thanks for the giveaway!

  1. Denise said...:

    My bro-in-law always fixes Thanksgiving, so my answer is not "make food". However, I will probably donate to Second Harvest like I do every year.
