Our Thanksgiving Day was just awesome! We got up at about 5 am to get ready to go to visit my parents and Randy, and my older brother, Bob. We were out the door shortly after 7, and arrived at about 10:30 at my parents’ home.
We spent the day relaxing, watching some television (gasp! I never do that!) and visiting.
We ate at about 1 and let me tell you, the food was fantastic! There was turkey, roast beef, and even chicken! We had tasty cranberry/ jello dish, rolls, salad, and sweet potatoes, and stuffing. And speaking of stuffing, we all stuffed ourselves! My compliments to the cook….Mom, everything was beyond awesome!
Yes, I took the new camera with me, but we got so busy with all that was going on, I barely took it out!
However, there was one little fellow who provided so much entertainment, I found myself laughing over and over!
As soon as I placed the camera bag on the couch, little Fritzmeister began diving in with his long nose. I have no idea why he was so attracted to the bag, other than perhaps he smelled “Scottie scents”!
As soon as I rested on the couch, I was pounced upon by Fritz, receiving a rather ambitious cleaning! Fritz loves “kissing”, and he really likes me! However, I was not the lone victim!
I know…I should have photographed all the people…the food….the essence of the day. However, I just plumb didn’t do it.
As we left to come home, I asked Mark to drive through downtown because I wanted to see if there were pretty Christmas decorations. I love the decor they chose….
Well, not much in the form of photos, but we all had such a satisfying day! We were home again at about 8 this evening.
My mother showed us an article in the local newspaper that announced the official Christmas shopping season has now begun. Tomorrow is Black Friday. That means crazed, glassy-eyed shoppers arriving at stores in the middle of the night, hoping to score big savings on Christmas gifts for themselves and others. Sorrowfully, I must say, I shall indeed be counted amongst those numbers. Yup, Miss Michelle has gleaned all the sales flyers, making her list and well, in a few short hours, we will be out “there”. Ah, nothing like a teenage shopping diva in the house!
Wish me luck. I’m sure I shall be needing it!
