A quick review of our fantastic Thanksgiving holiday... We left last Wednesday at 7am headed to Mt. Pleasant to see my family. It's a 5 hour drive and Mac gets antsy but he did so well on the drive there and back. We wanted to get a jump on the traffic so we left the house the same time we would if we were going to work, such a good move! There was no traffic and we did the same thing on Sunday when we drove home (on the road at 6am, followed Dad to his exit for work!)
We got into town around 11am and went to the house. Mac couldn't wait to get out of the car and play with Sandy!
They wore each other out numerous times over the weekend. While Mac was playing I took this picture from the drive way of our front yard... is there a question as to why I love going home?
Now some of you may know that Mac is not a big fan of nature, for those of you that don't know this here is the proof. Mom was going to sit him on the ground and as she lowered him he lifted his feet.
She lowered him some more and he picked his feet up more so they wouldn't touch the ground!!
He doesn't mind eating nature though...
On Thanksgiving Day everyone comes to my parents house. We had such a good dinner! Tons of food and tons of cake and pie! I ate my weight in cake and pie, the scale doesn't lie... I have a lot of running to do this week :/ but it was worth every bite! YUM! Oh and if you come to our house for Thanksgiving, be warned, you may get put to work...
The family stayed at the house visiting until around 4pm and after they left we found the couches, recliners, floor, whatever was closest and relaxed.
Friday I worked on cutting out snowflakes using the Cricut for Mac's birthday party. Mom played with Mac and Dad, Jimmy and Randall went skeet shooting. Mom, Mac and I ran a few errands in town later in the afternoon and then we were invited out to Randall's house for dinner! He cooked us spaghetti with meatballs, bread, green beans and Mom brought the tea and salad. It was so good and lots of fun! We got to see Randalls awesome Christmas tree too!
Friday was also my Mom and Dad's 39th Wedding Anniversary!
Saturday we visited with the grandparents, after I finished up some more snowflakes and banner stuff for the party. However, by Saturday the trip had taken a toll on some of us...
We ran a few more errands after leaving Mamaw's (where Jimmy and Mac were napping) and then home to sit! Then I remembered I wanted to take pictures of Mac to try and get something I could use for the Christmas card!! Here are a couple...I think they are so cute!!
It was a great trip!! I am looking forward to Christmas even more now! I just need to get through this week of birthday party prep and then the party on Sunday so I can start Christmas shopping!! This birthday party has consumed every spare minute and thought that I might have so Christmas shopping hasn't even made the to do list!!
