Thanksgiving Dinner

For Thanksgiving we headed up to Mike's parents. Mike's mom always has such a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner and always has all the yummy trimmings to go along with it. We had turkey, ham, potatoes, rolls, all kinds of salads, and some very yummy pies and a chocolate fountain which the kids loved. Mike's parents play Bingo with everyone. They have prizes for the winners and they play one game of Black Out and the person that wins get $50.00. Mike won last year, but his brother Paul walked away with the $50.00 this year. After dinner some napped while other looked through the ads to see if they were any good deals for Black Friday. I just want to thank everyone for such a great Thanksgiving. Thanks to grandma and grandpa for such a yummy Thanksgiving dinner. We love ya.

Favorite time of the year!

I just have to tell all of you how excited I am for this time of the year. I have to say that this is one of my favorite seasons. I have always loved the winter time. When I was little I loved to help my dad hang lights, help mom put up the tree and getting ready for Christmas. One of my favorite things about this time of the year is playing in the snow. I love going sledding, building snowman's, sipping on hot chocolate, going up to the cabin with my family and just feeling the Christmas spirit. I changed my blog background and put on some Christmas music and it really got me excited for Christmas. On Saturday Mike hung up the lights outside. It take the poor guy 31/2 hours. We line the windows and all around the house I will have to post a picture later. I just have to tell you all how special my husband is. I am a little OCD when I comes to lights they have to be perfectly straight and even on the sides of the windows ( I know ridiculous), but he put them up with out one complaint and makes them look great! Although his rule is I can't turn them on or put up the tree until after Thanksgiving so I can't wait until Friday afternoon. I have to go to the crazy sales in the morning with my sister (Yes we are those crazy people) then come home a put up the tree. Also just wanted to wish everyone a great Thanksgiving drive safe and enjoy all the Thanksgiving trimmings.

Twilight Movie

Last night my sister Chris and my sister-in-law went the 12:30 a.m. showing of Twilight. We got our tickets last week and were excited to go and see it. I know that we are probably crazy for going so late, but we thought it would be fun to go have a little fun. We went about 11:00 and only had to stand in line for about 15 minutes so it wasn't to bad other that the wind made it kind of chilly. The movie started about 1:00 a.m. I know we are crazy. It lasted 2 hours so we rolled out of the theater at 3:00 a.m. It was pretty good, kind of slow towards the beginning and the actors a little different that what I imagined in the book, but it was fun. The only struggle is being a HAPPY mom for the day. 4 hours of sleep I just don't know if it will cut it for the day. I am still trying to catch up on sleep from my Vegas trip last week, but oh well have to do what you have to do. Thanks Chris and Suzie it was fun
