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!
