I need your advice...

Ok, Thanksgiving is 1 week away, I'm already so stressed and I am in a prediciment! (not sure if I spelled that correctly or not)
So, we always stay here for Thanksgiving. Since my Mom lives here, my brother lives in Denver and my Dad lives in Florida. We just mainly stay here and spend it with my hubs family and my Momma. This year, my brother is going to Georgia to spend it with my extended family and so my Mom (naturally) said she would meet him there as well. So, I don't know what to do?!?! My hubs is saying that the boys and I should go be with my family this year (since we never do it) and leave him here. BUT, I honestly think we should not be apart on Thanksgiving and I will just chill here and it's not that big of a deal. My brother on the other hand is flipping out that we would not make the effort to come. It is causing so much stress on me!!!!!!
My question for you is... would you pack you and your kids up and head to spend Thanksgiving with your family and leave your husband home?? Or would you stay here with your husband and his family because I know I will have just as much fun here as I would there!
What do you feel I should do?
Oh and let me remind you that we just went to Georgia in October to see my family, my brother was not there... do not know what to do! Either way, I will upset somebody!!!

I think that is just a fact of life that everyone eventually moves off and into different directions....I would just do what feels right for YOUR family and concern yourself with that.

Katie, You have to do what in your heart you feel is right. We have our own dinner, at "our" home. We give Thanks together for all we have. It does not matter where we are, but that we are together. Go with your gut instinct. Where ever you celebrate, I pray you have the best day. Many Blessings,

Katie if you want to be here with your hubby you do that and don't worry about what anyone else says:) Put your immediate family first.

Awww, Katie, I feel for you. I would stay with the hubby. He and your boys are your new family now, and it's not fun to be apart on holidays. Trust me. Last Christmas Todd had strep throat, and he insisted we go on without him. So we left him at home, and I was miserable. If I had to do it all over again, I would have stayed home that day and done the unwrapping with family another day. :( Hope this helps some.
