OK folks, here it is, that time of year: Thanksgiving.

And its time for AR's first virtual Thanksgiving party.

A blog party is similar in concept to a progressive dinner party.  In a progressive dinner party, each course is held at someone else's home.  In this case, each day of a party theme will be hosted by the last person to post a comment on each day's party.

This will be run along the same lines as the AR Halloween party: (In case you missed that party, you can follow that thread and see what people brought here: First AR "Blog" Party: Halloween )

 

Here's the rules for a Blog Party:

 

1. When you make a post, you have to "bring" something to the party.

It can be a picture of food, drink, decorations, a video, music, costumes.

2. In addition, you have to post something that you are thankful for.

3. Click on the "Notify me of comments" when you leave your post.  That way you'll know who else is coming to the party and you can engage in mingling!

4. The last person to comment on this post by midnight, will "host" the party by either re-blogging this post -OR- starting their own post and linking back to this one.

5.  Everyone who commented on this party post will go the next host's party and bring something to that party. 

6.  The party will continue at each host's blog until Thanksgiving.

 

So, to start this off, here's a little place to sit and enjoy each other's company:

Table

BTW, join the AR Blog Party group and host your own party for what ever reason you like!  Celebrate something with all of AR!

(If you like this party, flag it below!)

And for all you "point hounds" there are points in this party.  Not bonus points or extra points.  With everyone carrying forward to the next party, the more comment points you get.  Who ever winds up hosting for the last day will have the most attendees (if everyone that shows up actually participates all the way through.

Monique: Looks like a handful, or two.

Sherry: I hope you brought enough for everyone! 

If someone wants to really kick this party into high-gear, then flag it for a feature.  That way more people will know about it and show up!

BTW, starting on December 14 will be the AR Christmas Blog Party: The twelve days of Christmas.  Now that will be an Epic party if we really work it!

This is going on now until Thanksgiving.  Its a progressive party.  Whoever posts last tonight hosts it tomorrow, etc., etc., etc.

And yes, you have to show up at the party every day, bringing something for the new host. 

That's also how you rack up points, by contributing and by hosting (if you're it for a day).

The last host on Thanksgiving should have a whole house full of AR folks dropping in to share!

We celebrated in October but I'll provide the pumpkin pie

I'm thankful for my beautiful Mother who is 81 and just suffered another stroke, has Parkinsons, Diabetes and is in heart failure.  I dressed her as the Queen for Halloween -  she has the spirit of royalty!

Looks like Kathleen is Saturdays's host.  As soon as she shows up here to let us know where  the party is, we'll keep it going!

In the meantime, you can stop in here!

I'll joinm the party.  I have so very much to be thankful for but lets start with my 6th Grandchild born September 2009.

You didn't think I could include one without the others did you?  Number 6 should be easy enough to pick out though.

Thanks Kathleen for picking this up. 

 

Remember folks, whoever posts last tonight at her party will be the host for tomorrow. 

If you've been to this party, you'll need to go to Kathleen's and bring something for her.

See you there.

Good stuff Michael. I see you threw another good party. The last one did not go well for me, but I think I know what I did wrong. Perhaps I'll catch the next party.  Happy Thanksgiving!
