We started the week before Thanksgiving with lunch at both kids’ schools.
Lunch with Aedan…
This popped up on my Facebook memory feed. It’s from Aedan’s first Thanksgiving lunch at preschool, 4 years ago!
Lunch with Adelaide…
We picked Aedan up from school a little early the Friday before Thanksgiving, and headed up to East Texas to visit Jon’s parents. They live on a farm and the kids had a blast. Two of Jon’s sisters also came, so all the cousins got to play.
On Thanksgiving we hosted Jon’s parents and grandparents. It was the first time I was in charge of the whole meal instead of just a side dish/dessert. I made a HUGE grocery trip that Monday and actually managed to not forget anything. Adelaide started off in the cart, but I had to kick her out because we ran out of room!
I cooked ALL day on Wednesday. I think I was in the kitchen from 9am until 5pm. But I got everything prepared so that on Thursdays all I had to do was heat everything up (we got a smoked Turkey, which made things easy too!). Everything came out really well!
This is about how we all felt on Friday after Thanksgiving. Ha! We were thankful for a quiet weekend just hanging around the house.
I did a little Black Friday shopping online and we got the house decorated for Christmas!
I think that catches me up! The kids only have 2 more weeks of school until Christmas break so hopefully I can get all the present bought and wrapped before then!
