As promised, here is the long-awaited (tee-hee) entry about my Thanksgiving, only 1000 years after everyone has posted theirs! To be fair, I did have an extended holiday, starting off Tuesday evening when Aidan arrived! He spent that night here playing and playing. Then he spent Wednesday playing and playing. Good times.
Thursday, we headed to our friends Jeff & Deborah for our annual Thanksgiving meal. Good food, and good times. Even when Aidan didn’t eat the yummy Yukon Gold potatoes. Hmph. After dinner, we went for a little walk, and I modeled my new coat:
Deborah and I also looked cute for the camera.
THEN it was off to the airport. It was SO NICE to fly on Thanksgiving evening during dinner time. The airport was so quiet, and the plane MAY have had 50 passengers total on it. It was so peaceful and smooth, and we arrived in Atlanta 50 minutes ahead of schedule!
Because Adam and I flew in Thanksgiving Day, we held off until November 25 to celebrate…..
The epic holiday combining Christmas,
Thanksgiving, and Family Portrait Day.
This happened. You’re so jealous. Just admit it.
Adam’s dad doesn’t look too proud of this turkey,
but HE SHOULD because it was DA BOMB DOT COM.
Good food was consumed, along with wine. Games were played, conversations had. Then it was PICTURE TAKING TIME!
After pictures, we sat around and talked until the sun went down. Then it was time for Thanksmas to start!
Thanksmas was awesome. I got some really neat things. But I had to leave them there because we flew Airtran and had our carry-on bags already packed to bursting (too cheap to pay baggage fees, ha). So Adam’s parents will ship all the big stuff to us.
His statue says “Best Person.”
It came from the Tacky Gift Exchange.
Aidan likes it.
I wanted the Justin Bieber toothbrush
but my cousin Annie got it instead.
Next day was stocking stuffers, naps, a morning of THIS cuteness:
and a visit to see……
Oh, and more pictures.
Gotta love that Atlanta in November is warm enough to go coatless. Back in Chicago now–we got back Tuesday afternoon. Another awesome Thanksmas!
Til next time!(Originally posted at http://anywhere-is.net. Comment here or there.)
