Top Tweets of the Week (Monday, November 26)
Hey Twitterverse! It’s been a while! How was your Thanksgiving? How’s the family? How’s your life? Gosh, it’s good to be back. Let’s review Turkey Day (and the days leading up to it) with some tweets about gratitude, some tweets about pie, some tweets about jokes, and some tweets about how awesome it is to realize how much love exists in this world, not just on Thanksgiving, but when you least expect it!

We bet this was super helpful for many people who were guests this Thanksgiving (and the people who hosted guests!) but it’s really a good idea to review guest etiquette frequently — bookmark this post and whip it out again if you’re traveling in the upcoming holiday weeks, too.

This is old news in the social media sphere now, but it seems like as good a time as any to congratulate Mommy Shorts on her beautiful new baby girl! What a wonderful Thanksgiving gift.

The week of Thanksgiving always completely confuses my sense of time. It’s nice to see I’m not the only one! (This tweet happened on Monday…but I felt like it was Wednesday, too!)

This is a wonderful motto for Thanksgiving, or really any large family holiday. Always #passthepie.
Happy Valentine’s Day. No chocolate around here just an obese chicken sitting on the kitchen counter.

Ever wonder how your toddler views Thanksgiving? Now ya know.
8 yr old just taught me the true meaning of “projectile vomiting.” #happy thanksgiving.

Picture perfect holidays rarely end up going as planned…at least the mishaps are usually memorable, right?
@nymetroparents Right before eating, everyone at the table has a chance to say what they are grateful for. Sometimes, very emotional!

We asked about your Thanksgiving traditions and you all shared such lovely ideas with us — thank you for letting us in.
Let’s be honest, this is the question on everyone’s mind this week. I think this tweet showed up on my feed 10+ times today…so why not share it a bit more?!
Delilah has written her first joke: “Knock knock.” “Who’s there?” “Macaroni” “Macaroni who?” “Macaroni you glad I didn’t say orange?” #age3

Macaroni I am! This is adorable. Please keep sharing these jokes.
The house is finally silent and here I go with my crazy routine. Am I the only one that has to do the dishes, sweep and mop before bed? OCD?

No way, you’re not alone! When else are we supposed to get anything done?!
I’m currently putting together this year’s “Do Not Buy” gift guide, but really, last year’s is still pretty relevant: slf.sh/smOnDq

As we move toward the December holidays, everyone will tell you what you need to buy. But don’t worry — Selfish Mom is here to tell you what you don’t need to buy! Rejoice.

This is important and awesome. It’s great to encourage gratitude year round, not just on the famous turkey day.
Hubby is going to coupon for me at @cvs_extra. Putting on his war paint as we speak. LOL. Wish him luck…
— Vera Sweeney (@VeraSweeney) November 26, 2012
We admire this bravery! Hope he got out okay
This morning my 5yr old went running 2his bus full speed then stopped &came right back. He said “forgot to tell u I luv u mom” Life is Good!

And as Thanksgiving becomes a distant memory and we barrel full-force ahead to the December holidays and the new year (it’s almost 2013!), sometimes little moments crop up to remind us that no matter how perfectly we orchestrate the family holidays, the best moments in life are often unexpected — but oh so beautiful.
