There was pie baking on Wednesday after work. I had a great time in my kitchen, making pies and watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel.
We went to the Nelson’s for Thanksgiving, as we traditionally do. We were a smaller group this year and enjoyed a wonderful dinner and then a pleasant afternoon and evening by the fire.
On Friday I had a little shopping excursion – not for Black Friday – but with Sean to the Italian Kitchen for Swedish supplies. Swedish meatballs for the win for Friday night snacks. It started feeling like Christmas the minute the smell of those meatballs filled my kitchen.
Saturday was Thanksmas with the kids. I love our tradition of gathering the Saturday after Thanksgiving for a turkey dinner. It was a great day, full of food and fun and games.
On Sunday we got to steal Jackie away from him mama for a few hour. We brought him with us to a tree trimming party at Sean and Michael’s. He was seasonally dressed, of course, and behaved perfectly. He even smiled for the camera. It was quick, I’ll tell you, but I was ready!
Nothing says Christmas like Santa on a baby’s bum.
The trees (yes, they have more than one) were trimmed, merry was made, and it was the perfect end to our holiday weekend.
Hope yours was everything you wanted it to be, too.
