We spent Thanksgiving with my parents this year. Dan had been up to see his parents a few weeks before the holiday, my sister was out of town, and I felt like cooking. I didn't cook much -- just the stuffing and the corn -- but it was enough to get that urge out of my head.
Here's some of our pictures from the holiday weekend:
The puppies know Gramps has the good treats.
Our table. Mykiah said it was OK to use Christmas plates. And we like stuffing. A lot.
Jake just about couldn't handle the smells of Thanksgiving dinner. We ate a Schwan's roasted Turkey Breast and it was the perfect size for those of us who eat turkey... and so easy. And Jake so wanted to try it.
Jakey loves giving kisses. Or liking turkey off your face. Whichever.
I sat down after dinner to read a book (while the rest of the family watched Christmas Vacation) and before I knew it I was wrapped in a warm blanket with a dog on me and a dog beside me. And snoring. It was a great nap.
And we watched Ron Baker and the Shockers play in a tournament. They lost. That's OK. We're better as underdogs.
My parents have a gas fireplace. Jake loved it.
The puppies almost slept snuggled together. There's a blanket separating them.
Ches and Jake while they were decorating Grandma's house for the holidays.
My mom's tree is gorgeous without any decorations. But the kids added a few anyway.
Kind of fun to spend a couple days not at home just relaxing...
