On the day before Thanksgiving
the kids and I did have
a pie crust emergency.
We stopped what we were doing
and then drove through the snow
to get more crust from the grocery store.
The pumpkin pie was good
and the kids did a great job
next year I'll have them bake more.
On the day of Thanksgiving
I woke up in my bed
which I haven't done in eight years.
(because we usually travel to my parent's the night before)
We ate cinnamon rolls
while watching the Parade
then headed out to my parent's house.
We dined with our family at this fancy table
we ate, we drank, we laughed,
really so much to be thankful for.
On the day after Thanksgiving
we drove to a farm
to cut down my parent's Christmas tree.
After decorating the tree
a movie my Dad and kids did see
and I worked on Vaughn's stocking.
The night was rounded out
with dinner with old friends
a great time we really did have.
