How sad is it that I have no pictures from Thanksgiving? Pretty sad.
This year we went to the Heslops for Thanksgiving. Dave and Sydney live about 6 hours away, so it wasn't too bad of a drive. Sydney's brother, Casey, moved to Louisville, KY with his family back in September to start Dental school, and Louisville is about in the middle between the Heslops and us. SO, since they were nearby too, they joined us in the festivities. Or maybe we joined them? Hmmmmm.
So Bo had the overnight shift the day before/of Thanksgiving, so I loaded up the kids Thanksgiving morning and we picked up Bo bright and early at the hospital and headed to Tennessee. The roads were clear and the weather was great, which made for a smooth drive. We got to the Heslops around 2 in the afternoon, and about an hour later feast began!!!
It was really yummy and full of the usual; turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, veggies, rolls, and Martenellis. And pie. Let's not forget the pie. I also brought tons of homemade candy. I made cordial cherries, fudge, peppermint bon bons, oreo balls, and toffee.
"Black Friday" started at like 7 on Thanksgiving Day, so after lying on the couch a bit and checking the ads, Syd, Sylvia (Casey's wife), and I headed off to go get us some bargains!
We got what we wanted and were home before midnight. A huge success.
The next day we let the kids play outside, ate leftovers, and took the group to go see the movie "Frozen." That night, after the kids were in bed, we played games. Oh, how we love to play games!!!
Saturday morning our little family had to take off to head back to Indiana. In order for Bo to be able to go to the BYU vs. Notre Dame game the weekend before, he had to switch shifts, which meant that in stead of staying till Sunday at the Heslops like we had planned, we had to hurry home for Bo to catch another evening shift. Oh well.
It was a quick trip, but it was worth it. We love our cousins/friends. I just wish we had gotten pictures. :(
