Thanksgiving and Decorating

What a whirlwind week it as been. Are we already over with the first week of December? Impossible. I can't believe only a month ago, we were gearing up for Thanksgiving, which seemed so far away. NOW, it's but a distant memory (and a few extra pounds), the house and halls are decked, and we're polishing off our Christmas shopping!

Thanksgiving for us ended up being quite a marathon. We decided this year to spend the night with Kyle's grandparents the night of Thanksgiving, to allow for the most time with family. A bonus was the morning after- we were around to help Nanny decorate for Christmas.

The first meal of the day was lunch at Nanny's, and we wrapped up the day with dinner at Mimmy and Pappy's. What a day!

The weekend after Thanksgiving, Kyle's family came over with boxes of childhood slides, and we revisited the past with hors d'ouvers, wine, and Taco Bueno
