Thanksgiving Recap

We woke up Thanksgiving morning and decided we should eat something to hold us over until we went to dinner at the in-laws house.  Nothing was open except for Wal-mart so we ended up with none other than… California Pizza Kitchen pizza.  We split one between all of us and I took a nap before we went.  I slept a total of 4 hours the night before and I was tired.  After a 30 minute nap Aaron woke me up and I got the twins ready and off we went.  On our way out of town we had to stop and get gas so I went into Starbucks and got a peppermint mocha frappuccino.  It was delightful.

When we got to the in-laws house the food was ready so we all dug in.  There was macaroni and cheese, ham, turkey, dressing and gravy, potato salad, greens, corn, and cranberry sauce.  For dessert there was banana pudding.  My father-in-law makes the best banana pudding- it was divine as always.  I won’t even get started on how good my mother-in-laws sweet tea is because we will be here all day.

Aaron’s brother and his wife came over and I visited with his wife while everyone else watched football.  I also had the chance to browse all of the black Friday ads from the paper and I have to say there were some really great deals.  I myself did not go black Friday shopping this year.  I am more of a fan of cyber Monday because I can sit in the comfort of my own home at any hour I please.

We headed back home at about 6:00 PM with leftovers in tow.  Once home, we watched The Wire (great show) and eventually called it bed time.  This year my family didn’t do Thanksgiving because of being on vacation but I still had a nice day.  The kids really enjoyed themselves and really appreciated the food (they ate more than Aaron).  The leftovers we came home with are already gone and now I have a grocery list to make.  I hope everyone holiday was great.  Did any of you take advantage of Black Friday?  Any crazy stories?

I’ll be back Monday so look for me then!  Have fun!
