Sweeney said, “As a parent, I love celebrating Thanksgiving because it’s an opportunity to stop and be thankful and share that experience with your kids and help them realize how thankful they are. ” “I started a thing with my kids where I ask them to write down three things every night that they’re grateful for, and it can be small things like, ‘I didn’t have to take out the trash today’ or ‘ I’m thankful for my dog - just take a minute to think about what you’re thankful for that day and make it a lifelong habit.

“I think about it a lot throughout the year, and I really gravitate toward preparing myself physically and mentally for the day. ‘What time am I going to eat? What do I eat first?’ Shall I eat? What’s going on this plate? To put in?” Sweeney said. “I like everything. I love the smell of the kitchen, and I start making sides and stuff three days in advance, and I love it.
