Thanksgiving recap

Our Thanksgiving started with a 10 o'clock pie run on Thanksgiving Eve to satisfy the husband's sweet craving, which rears it's head so infrequently that pie became my highest priority. Then we watched an inordinate amount of shows on Netflix and ended the night by snuggling in bed while reading one of my favorite Diana Wynne Jones books, The Dalemark Quartet. (Reading together over the break is a tradition for us that we started last Thanksgiving right after we got engaged.)

The next morning was sleepy and slow and perfect. (Love our heater and blankets.) Then we got up, danced around our place to Christmas music while I made g-free bread and artichoke dip and we both talked to our fams back home.

After much food and some games at Nick's aunt's house we continued the party with his sister and brother-in-law at my friend Amy's place. (We might have had a second Thanksgiving dinner with her. And she may have made the best sweet potatoes ever. Maybe.) Then we watched a double feature, first at Amy's and then the dollar theater. (Yay for cheap treats!)

I know that Halloween was ages ago, but I just saw this video yesterday and I was doubled over laughing. What would you have done when you were a kid if your parents told you that they ate all of your Halloween candy?


  1. Glad you had a good Thanksgiving!


  2. Wonderful to hear that you had a lovely Thanksgiving! It really and truly makes all the difference to be with loving family, doesn't it? I'm going to miss mine so much when I'm away at college next year! xx

  3. Sounds like a delightful Thanksgiving break (especially the dancing around to Christmas music part)! :) I love that video too, my favorite part is the two brothers a the end! "you sneaky mom!"


Thanks for your nice words. I appreciate them so much.
