In reality is there anything better than spending an uninterrupted 4 days off with family and friends? I work for an awesome company and we were able to have Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday off, which was bliss. I feel like you don’t want an update about Thanksgiving, because I’d say turkey gobble turkey family gobble sleepy.
Instead I decided to write up two lists. What we enjoyed and didn’t enjoy.
+ This year we had a relatively small Thanksgiving with my immediate family and my grandma. Since this was the case my mom went all out and bought fresh LIVE lobsters from Maine for our dinner. We were savages, we killed the lobsters and then ate them. It was a very untraditional Thanksgiving; Pulling apart lobsters and laughing at the mess it created. It was delicious.
+ My parents just bought an older Motorhome that they’re taking down to Mexico this year. After we ate dinner, we all hopped in the motorhome and drove around for an hour or so. We even drove down to the gas station and filled up with candy. It was fun to sit in the motorhome and tell stories without any TV or phones (we left in such a hurry most of us forgot our phones… and shoes!). I was grateful for this since I won’t be heading down to Mexico with them this year.
+We weren’t able to make it to Jared’s family Thanksgiving, so we went over for Sunday night dinner. I love hanging out with my niece and nephew. We played uno and twister. Plus they gave us our annual hand crafted ornaments for our tree and Elsie decided she loved sitting on Jareds shoulders, which was too funny. I love those kiddos.
+ Jared ended up with a gnarly migraine on Thanksgiving, so we went home, shut off all the lights and laid in bed for way too long.
+ For some reason our dogs were super stinky this weekend. I promise, we don’t allow them to have human food, but these dogs were lighting up our house all weekend. We almost gave them to the gypsies (an old threat my mom used to use when we were bad kids.)
Overall, we had a really wonderful, really long weekend. I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving as well.
