We have been waiting for weeks for Thanksgiving! I'm sure that everyone has. It's always nice to have a little time off to relax with your family. The problem is that usually you don't end up relaxing. But at any rate, it's nice to be with family.
This year, we decided to bring my sister, Stephanie, to our home for Thanksgiving. She goes to college in Philadelphia, and for the last two years in a row, she has had to spend Thanksgiving alone. We decided it would be a fun adventure for our family to retrieve her from her scholarly surroundings and bring her to a more relaxing environment, free from the hustle and bustle of big city living.
Our trip started out great:
The Sci-Fi nerds spent the entire break talking about comic books and movies that I have never heard of.
Aunt Stephanie and her homeboys.
And the beautiful feast that I prepared. My house may not be unpacked yet, but at least I dug out my china so we could dine in style!
Friday was spent decorating the Christmas trees. This is the grown-up tree (which explains why the grown-ups are standing next to it).
We may have had too much sparkling cider...
Andrew with the kiddie tree. I swear, this is the cutest face I have ever seen!
