And what a gorgeous Thanksgiving Day it was! Beautiful, I tell ya....with temps in the 60s & plenty of glorious sunshine. We spent a leisurely morning watching the Macy's parade & pointing out all the places that we now recognize from NYC. Pretty cool being able to say 'Yeah, I know where that is'.....'I remember being there'. While we were watching the parade, Ashley baked us some YUMMY home-made cinnamon buns. Then, after getting their bellies full, Clay & the boys headed outside to continue digging HOLES (remember that movie?) & working on our potty/septic tank problems. You might be thinking....what a bummer to have to work on that on Thanksgiving Day.....but my kids found a way to make even THAT project fun.
|They certainly know how to have fun while working! Definitely a moment in time to be thankful for!!|
|And while we 'helped' with the extra credit, I worked on Alli's afghan. It's all put together now......this was yesterday morning early, putting in that last block....|
|Now begins the edging & I'll be DONE!|
We didn't do any Black Friday shopping per se......I have NO desire to get out there in all the craziness just for a bargain. I bargain hunt all the time anyway. But all us girls......Maw, Sarah, Ella, me & some of our kids.....got together & had a Girly Thanksgivng celebration together at Cracker Barrel yesterday. It was really nice. Afterwards we sat outside visiting....while waiting on everyone to get done looking around, etc. Ashley sat down beside me in this adorable little kid's rocking chair & wanted me to take her picture. Speaking of bargains.....I DID find some yesterday. We ran by Good Will.....Ashley is really into the big chunky sweaters from the 80s/90s & she scored 3 sweaters yesterday. I spent $27 & got those three sweaters, two pairs of flannel pj pants for me, 8 shirts for the guys AND a book for Sarah. We didn't get home til 7pm last night. Kind of tired, but blessed by the day we shared together!
