Hope You Had a Great Thanksgiving...

I sure did! Here are some of the high lights:
  • No work from Wednesday afternoon - Sunday afternoon (horse euthanasia, only took 20 minutes)
  • Cousin in since week before Thanksgiving - love having another woman around and so fun to catch up.
  • Other cousins/aunt and uncle in Monday - my kids love playing with the cousins and we had an overall blast!
  • Gabby's 8th birthday was Monday - we layed low and did dinner and presents. You'll never guess what Steve got her - a hampster! Not my first choice, be he gets dad-of-the-month because she absolutely loves it. It was evil at first, but now it's getting much more friendly.
  • Tuesday gym night at Gull Lake Ministries - fun playing bball, v-ball, and pickleball with highschoolers.
  • Wednesday prep for Thanksgiving food. I actually think all the cooks in the kitchen got along. Maybe it was the "drink and cook" philosophy?
  • Yum and Yum for Thanksgiving dinner! It was so good. I don't know why we don't have turkey more often, I love it. I have so much to be thankful for - that could be its own post so I won't go into details, but lets just say I feel very blessed for sure.
  • Thursday night bonding with some special ladies (aka crazy ladies). We ventured out into the world of late-night shopping with a midnight run to ToyzRUs. Needless to say, we waited in line an hour b/c they were only letting in 10 people at a time. Ugh - Dumb! But we had fun shivering in the rainy, windy, cold night air. And we got a few good deals, too.
  • Shopping, AirZoo, and more shopping on Friday. After getting home at 2am, I didn't venture out at some ungodly hour of the morning, but still did some power shopping.
  • Blind Side - great movie!! Recommend for anyone who hasn't seen. Plus we went to the "Dutch" movie theater - $5 large popcorn and 2 large drinks!
  • Saturday celebrated Gabby's birthday by going to Craig's Cruisers - go carts, games, laser tag, etc. We had lots of fun!
  • Saturday night let our hair hang out at the local "barn" - actually had pretty good live music. Had plenty o' fun with fam and friends. Even got to dance with my hubby which is pretty rare. Need to do this more often.
  • Sunday church and veg.

So you can see, there was no short supply of fun around here. I'm a little tired, but hey, "You only live once!" Right? Pics to come.
