We ended up having a great Thanksgiving spending the weekend down the road in Charlotte with family. I think Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it's centered on family, there is no stress over buying presents for everyone, and the focus is FOOD! Plus, I'm a sucker for a good old fashioned parade. Seems like every town with a population of 50 or more has a parade on Thanksgiving and Charlotte was no exception. Luckily, the parade route passed just outside Bogey and Marmee's house (code names for grandparents, in case you were confused), so we braved the misty rain and headed outside to watch.
As you could probably gather from the towels above, the rain eventually started to come down and we had to hightail it back inside. No problem though. Since Bogey lives six floors up, we had the perfect spot to watch the parade through the rain.
Of course we finished the day off with a great feast. The kids were a bit skeptical about some of the new dishes on their plate, but were fairly willing to try them. Cranberries proved to be a hit. The adults enjoyed their food as well. Basically, it was all about the food!
I know Luke is old enough to wear clothes and eat at the same time, but this just proves easier for me in the long run. My washer and dryer will thank me later.
Hope you all enjoyed your respective Thanksgivings with your loved ones. Any good stories to share? Holiday mishaps are usually the funniest! More to come later with Christmas on the horizon ...
