An accidental text message has led to a Thanksgiving tradition that is now continuing into its seventh year.

Jamal Hinton confirmed on Instagram Tuesday that he will spend this Thanksgiving with Wanda Dench, who in 2016 thought she was texting her grandson to invite him to Thanksgiving when she actually texted Hinton.

Hinton shared a photo standing next to Dench outside The Cheesecake Factory restaurant, writing, “To answer all your questions, yes Thanksgiving year 7 is planned out! See you guys Thursday!”
