Thanksgiving Weekend

I did not do a very good job of taking pictures over Thanksgiving. I am going to have to get better at that once Perry is here...although it will be easier since we will have something cute to take pictures of. : ) Our sweet friend Kristen came to spend thanksgiving with us from Atlanta. We had a fun weekend of hanging out, shopping and family time. 

Thanksgiving Eve we went over to my grandparents house for dinner. There were lots of family in town that we don't get to see very often, it was great to have almost the whole family together. 

Thanksgiving morning we slept in and then had a yummy breakfast of pumpkin muffins and peppermint tea while we watched the Macy's parade.

Andrew had to work Thanksgiving Day until 2, so after the parade Kristen and I took lunch to my grandmother and ate with her and watched some of the annual dog show. 

Then we headed out to Andrew's family for the afternoon and evening. Ann had this great idea to make a thanksgiving tree where we all wrote things we are thankful for on the paper leaves.

The only picture I remembered to take of people on Thanksgiving Day...

After looking through the Black Friday ads and opening times, we decided that if we were going to do it, to do it up right and head out late Thanksgiving night to start shopping. After all this was the last year of shopping without a baby in tow. It seems that stores open earlier and earlier every year...and I absolutely refuse to let shopping change my family celebration plans...but after we got home from Thanksgiving dinner Kristen and I changed into comfy clothes and headed out and shopped from about 10:30 pm until about 7 am. 

Really the entire mall was open when we got there at about 3 am. We were hungry so we stopped at chick-fil-a for a late night snack/early breakfast...don't really know what you call that meal...but it was yummy.

We spent most of the rest of Black Friday resting and doing some online shopping in our PJs on the couch. Then we went to the Havoc hockey game that night....always entertaining.

The rest of the weekend was pretty low key. We did the afore mentioned family pictures and ate lots more food. Lastly we went and picked out an Angel from the Salvation Army Angel tree and bought the presents for the sweet little 3 year old girl. Kids are so much fun to buy for.
