Thanksgiving 2010

Thanksgiving 2010 was wonderful!

We split every holiday time between my family and Luke's family. They only live about 45 minutes away from each other so it makes this pretty easy.

Wednesday afternoon we headed to my parent's house. We spent the rest of the night hanging with the family and watching some TV.

Thursday we woke up and I turned on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. Nobody else seemed to be too interested in it, but I LOVE watching the parade. It's just so magical, even though most of it is bad lip-synchers and people walking with a string in hand I still love it.

My mom was busy preparing our Thanksgiving feast and I decided to help her and made some green bean bundles. This must be documented. Since I'm going to be joining the world of mothers this coming year I decided I should start helping with the Thanksgiving festivities. Even though it was one meal and took about 5 minutes of preparation. Then we ate lunch and it was yummy. My 2 favorite dishes on Thanksgiving are cheese potato's, and dressing. Yum yum.

Also, I'm a mixer, I mix all my food up together. It's just better that way.

Then we took some pics

My two sometimes-sweet, sometimes-not sisters:
Me and the momma-sita
Me and my baby (who is not really a baby anymore, she is 18) sister. I'm the sweet one all the time.


And the 3 sisters together:
Before we headed to Luke's parent's house we burned some calories on the Wii. By the way I'm horrible when it comes to games on the Wii Fit that require you to balance, which is basically all of them. Here I am trying to hit soccer balls with my head. NOT as easy as it sounds.

Thursday and Friday night we spent the night at Luke's parent's house. It was a good time. Friday we did not wake up early and go shopping but that evening Luke's mom and I ventured out to go shopping and got some great deals. Gap maternity was having some good sales so I stocked up on some maternity clothes, PLUS we finally purchased our nursery furniture. YAY!!

Saturday I went to see Wicked with Luke's aunt and cousin. I had never seen it and was so excited when Luke's parent's got me a ticket for an early Christmas present. I LOVED it and want to see it again with Luke. I think he would like it.Saturday night we headed back home and we have spent Sunday relaxing and watching TV (football games and Christmas movies).

We are thankful for our families and that we are able to spend so much time with them during the holiday season. It was a great one!

So glad you had a nice Thanksgiving! We typically split our holidays with family too, and while I love that, sometimes it can even be more a of a hassle.

And isn't Wicked wonderful?! I could go see it over and over and never be tired of it!

Have a wonderful Monday :)

I LOVE Wicked!!!!!! So good!

Sounds (and looks) like you had a great Thanksgiving!!

I'm so sorry about the mixing up of the food........ I'm the exact opposite, lol. My food canNOT touch. At all.

I knew you would love Wicked! It is just fantastic. I have the soundtrack if you want a copy. :)

My mom has the Wii Fit and is obsessed with it. We play it constantly when we are visiting. I suck at all the games, but it is fun!

And we had green bean bundles and they were a hit.

Courtney said...

Wicked is one of the best plays!! What a fun weekend to go see it

Erin said...

That Wii soccer game is tough, especially when it starts throwing those random not-soccer-ball objects at you. It's difficult enough to get those soccer balls, much less dodge all the other stuff. :-) That action shot is great!

Marissa said...

I was thinking, "Is dressing a food group?" Then I googled it and realized you weren't talking about salad dressing!

Sonya said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has trouble with the Wii soccer game! I'm a great hula-hooper, but the soccer one annoys me!

Brittany said...

Wicked is the best!!! So glad you had a great Thanksgiving!

Perfectly Imperfect said...

I want to see Wicked!

Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving! You ladies are gorgeous!

And I'm the opposite of a mixer; I can't deal with my food touching!

Jessica @ Acting Adult said...

Wow, you look just like your mom! I love the family pics. And it's also good to hear that you're starting to cook. It'll come in handy soon, I'm sure! ;)

Alex and Jill said...

I want to see Wicked!! Everyone says it's great. Sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families! Looking forward to seeing the nursery. :)

Kassie said...

That's great that you got to spend Thanksgiving with both sets of families! And this year is the first time I've done anything at all for Thanksgiving, as well. My dad cooks everything (you don't want my mom in the kitchen) but I actually baked this year. Are we growing up? :)

petrii said...

Megan,
Looks like your Thanksgiving was just lovely.

Glad you got your baby furniture and a little something-something for mama =) New clothes always do make a girl feel better.

Have a Blessed day,
Dawn

Tess said...

Seems like a great Thanksgiving. Very similar to mine actually! I am the oldest of 3 girls, and I can totally related to the "sometimes sweet, sometimes not" comment. Hopefully it gets better with age??? Hahhaha ;-)
