Good afternoon ladies! It is the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend and we survived yet again hosting for our family !On Monday afternoon we both went to the elementary school to see our son play the ukulele in their last session for the year. He likes it and is interested in getting his very own. Tuesday was spent getting the house spick and span ( well more spick and span than usual!) in anticipation for people coming on Thursday.
Tuesday night into Wednesday morning it snowed 5 inches , the kids had the day off anyway which was good. Last minute items were picked up to be ready for the big day. The kids stayed up late watching a movie which helped them sleep in the next morning. We did a bunch of food prep and people started arriving around 10.30 . They had dishes to heat up after driving . There were 16 in total including us 6. It was a lovely time together with good food . We are all thankful for another year together. People left by 6pm and it was a quieter house again ( its never totally quiet here!)
I did not go black Friday shopping . Instead on Friday morning we transformed the house from fall to Christmas decorations, and put up the tree. The kids helped this year in a big way. They were excited to! We baked Christmas cookies trying to start a tradition going forward . They were all decorated in unique ways by the kids. Our neighbor Maddi came over to help also ( she is 6 months younger than our Daughter and her parents split a few years back unfortunately and spends 7 days at each house) We had Lasanga in the evening and maddi and her Dad joined us for it. We got another 4 inches of snow overnight , so it truly is a winter wonderland all before December 1st!
