Holiday Time

Thanksgiving this year was really fun, and a little crazy. My grandma was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago, and so because this could be her last holiday season, we all gathered at her house on Thanksgiving. We haven't done that in years. I saw family that I haven't seen in probably more than 6 years. There were great-grands running around, playing together,  two turkeys were cooked and picked clean, and the house was filled with laughter and conversations. It was pretty great.

We stayed in a hotel that night,  because Grandma's house is a good 1.5 hours away and we didn't want to try the  long drive home right at bedtime.  It went so well! We boycotted shopping on Thursday,  and instead sat in bed browsing the ads.  Evie slept in the bathroom in a hotel crib, so we didn't disturb her by talking and having lights on. It was hilarious and also worked really well!

Friday we stopped at a small town Wal-Mart and scored some good stuff! It was not crowded, and a lot of the doorbusters from Thursday were still there. My best find wad the entire Harry Potter series on Blueray for like, $4 each.

We also went to Old Navy, Macy's, and JC Penny's before going to the Green Papaya for lunch (bahn mi for me, pho for A, and potstickers for the babe).

All in all, it was great!  And we got all the lefover pie (apple, key lime, pecan, and pumkin), making it a total win.
