I was able to take 9 days off for Thanksgiving. I had so much fun I forgot to take pictures.

Sunday we packed and rested

Monday we drove down to my parents house. We thought it was going to be TERRIBLE weather but it was nice and relaxing.  When we got there Adam was TYE ERD  so he took a nap and I waited for my parents to get home from shopping. When they did I had a whole new wardrobe! Yay for early Christmas.  Adam got several really nice shirts as well. He really needed them. Thanks Mom and Dad. After that we went to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part one and Miah brought his cute little girlfriend. She's super sweet. I like her.

Tuesday we hung around and played games, and tried to make plans for the rest of the week.

Wednesday we made pies, I made my first pumpkin pie, everyone said it was yummy. We played more games and visited and hung out with the kids.

Thursday was the main event.  Thanksgiving dinner was fabulous.  My mom makes one mean turkey.  Everything was super yummy and mom and dad had invited a couple over that didn't have anywhere to go.  It was fun and there was a lot of laughter and yummy food.  Afterward we took family pictures, which I'm waiting for My sister to post on her blog (hint hint) and then we went to see TANGLED!! It was AWESOME.  You MUST see it. It was great there was laughing and happiness and tenderness.  It was great. Starting at Midnight we went shopping, by we I mean Kendra Becky Mom and myself.  We shopped and shopped and shopped and shopped. We came home around 8 AM and got some good deals.  It was A LOT of fun. I've never done the whole black friday deals thing.  There was about 30 to f45 minutes of shopping and the an hour or so in line it was nuts.

Friday I slept most of the day due to the not getting home til 8 AM thing.  Then we ate pizza that Kendra made and it was FABULOUS!!  We played games and I had to work for an hour so I went back to mom and dads and did that and then went to bed.

Saturday was a BLAST we went to go get Cafe Rio (yum) and then went to the washington rec center. It was A MAZE ING we watch people climb the wall, Shaunie did it about four times, and most everybody got to the top.  Neither Adam or I could do it, but we will....soon.  Then we went to the pool Area. It was Amazing! There was a play area for the bigger kids and a play area for the little kids/babies, there was a lazy river and a hydro tube (I'm anti that but that's another story on another blog) The kids had a blast. We went back to Mom's house and goofed around. We had BLTs for dinner and the kids were all tired so there was some snuggling and some visiting. Then I had to work another hour so I did that and then we packed up and left. 

All in all it was probably my favorite thanksgiving ever. I loved spending it with my wonderful husband and my awesome family.  I miss them so much.  Maybe we will be able to move back down next fall......
