I know I'm a little late with this post;) I meant to post on Thanksgiving eve, but the whole busyness of cooking overtook me. Add to that the fact that I promised the kids they could each choose and make a dish, which somewhat prolonged the job... but it was lots of fun all around:)
The Professor made the mashed potatoes (and learned that there are lots of different things you can stick in there) the Artist made deviled eggs (reminding me of a summer picnic, but it was his choice) and the Princess made turkey cookies... she always seems to sneak cookies in somehow:)
We enjoyed stuffing ourselves after the obligatory picture was taken. The boys had each written a little essay on what they were thankful for (have to sneak those essays in where you can) and we enjoyed hearing them.
On to the games. This board game is all the craze at our house right now. It's called stratego and reminds me of another version of chess, but using numbers along with the strategy. The Princess will play this game non-stop (provided she can find willing partners) and I have noticed it is sharpening her maths skills a bit. Like I said, gotta sneak it in where you can.
All in all, it was a wonderful, relaxing day.
Black Friday (I'm doubling up on posts here:). Hubby did the rush-out-to-get-the amazing-deal on this day. He was back about 30 minutes later with the items in hand (no kidding). Around 8 AM I left to pick up the usual socks and pajamas at 1/2 price, along with the boy's matching Christmas sweaters. They were Oshkosh (the sweaters) and regularly priced $32. each; I paid $13 for them! Anyway, that was pretty much the extent of my shopping, other than a few little odds and ends.
So that brings us to the present day. I plan to reorganize my bathroom today, and pull out all the Christmas decorating stuff. Hopefully we'll have our tree up by the end of the day. I didn't want to change my colors on my blog though til I had wrapped up Thanksgiving:)
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well. See you on Monday!
