What are your plans for Thanksgiving this year?

Around Town

My mom is coming over and we'll be making tamales. A close cousin is also coming up from L.A. We'll have a great time talking about and anticipating our upcoming trip to Mexico over Christmas, where we're going in order to visit family. We're really looking forward to it.

This Thanksgiving we plan to hike at Sunol, call the kids, in Oregon and Switzerland, and eat too much turkey. We'll also plan our outfits for the Niles Canyon Railway Train of Lights, as we volunteer on it every year.

Janet Smith

Administrative assistant

I'm planning to spend Thanksgiving with my grandfather. We will have a light dinner and then go to see a movie together since pretty much everything else is closed until all of the Black Friday madness begins.

Kaia and Phoebe Davies

Elementary and preschool students

We're planning to spend the holiday at home, play with all of our toys and go shopping for our Christmas tree! And we'll be celebrating our mom's birthday, too.

Rashele Albright

Patient services specialist

I'm going to my father-in-law's this year, where my kids and I will get to see all of my nieces and nephews (their cousins). It'll be the first time in a long time that they'll all be together again, so we're really excited about it.
