Tom & I and the boys spent Thanksgiving with my family at my parents’ house – it was a cold & rainy day, but we had a nice time. My brother, Donnie, did the majority of the cooking,
with some supervision!
The final product was beautiful . . . and delicious!
We enjoyed the full thanksgiving feast – turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, noodles, vegetables, salad . . . and more desserts than you can imagine!
The chocolate turkey tasted pretty good, too!
We weren’t planning on doing any “Black Friday” shopping, but looking through the ads at my Mom’s, we found that Best Buy had the Nook (which the boys are getting for me for Christmas) and the XBox with Kinect (which the boys want for Christmas) both as doorbusters on Friday morning. So . . . we were there at 6 am, in line with a hundred other people . . . and managed to get both of them! That was it for us, though – after a couple of minor stops to look at snowblowers, and at Kroger to pick up a ham for dinner – we were back home by 9:30.
After our mid-afternoon nap, Tom’s family came over for dinner, and we had a “leftovers buffet” along with the ham we picked up at Kroger. Another delicious dinner!
