It seems to me that the longer a weekend is the faster it goes. AmIRight?
Or maybe it’s just because we cram so much fun, family, and food into a weekend that it flies by?
I’ll show you photos and you decide.
There was pie baking.
And a fabulous turkey dinner with friends and family.
This year’s pumpkin pie. I saw this turkey decoration on Instagram and had to try it myself. I baked the pie for a while before adding the turkey and was worried that I didn’t bake it for long enough but it was actually perfectly cooked. My favorite, too!
There was Christmas decorating. I hemmed and hawed about doing it on Friday and Dale looked at me and said, “let’s just do it!” That little push was all I needed and between the two of us we got the bulk of it done.
We rewarded ourselves with oysters and cocktails and beer at a local restaurant.
On Saturday there was Thanksmas, our Thanksgiving/Christmas mash up with our kids. We completely switched up the menu this year, focusing on the Christmas food rather than the Thanksgiving food and it was a huge success, mostly because we all love Swedish meatballs and macaroni & cheese.
All too soon it was Sunday night. We noshed on some leftover meatballs and eggs, enjoying the football game we taped and the Christmas tree we set up but didn’t decorate yet.
How was your weekend?
