To say our Thanksgiving started out chilly would be an understatement. We woke up to weather that was -20* F. Brrrrrrrrrrr. Thankfully it didn’t stay that cold for days on end. It just hung around for Thanksgiving day was all.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving day. I got the turkey in the oven first thing in the morning and all of the other food I needed to make done early as well. I just had to heat it up when we got to Shawn’s office building. Talk about a low stress day. It was fabulous. I was kept wondering if there was something I had forgotten to do because it all seemed to easy. And, having Thanksgiving at Shawn’s office building was a great idea. There was plenty of room for everyone and the kids were able to run around and play, I didn’t have to clean my house before and after, and the boys had football on a projection screen 10 times the size of our own t.v. It was a win win for everyone.
We spent the rest of the weekend eating left overs, watching football and Netflix, relaxing, and playing card games. The big kids were glad that it warmed up to 10 degrees yesterday so they could go skating outside. They had a great time, and I was happy to enjoy a little alone time at the library while they skated and the littler kids were at home with dad. All in all it was a great, stress free weekend, which was just what we all needed.
Headed to town around 3:30. The sun had already set and the sky was incredible.
Food, fun, family and football. What more can you ask for?
