Nope, you couldn’t pay me to go near a retail store (other than possibly the grocery store) on the Friday after Thanksgiving.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year! We had planned to have 14 this year, but on Wednesday, T#3 came up sick … a trip to the doctor confirmed that he’s contagious so we made phone calls to my dad (he’s almost 89 and we just didn’t want to risk exposing him to a fairly major bug) and my sister. T#3 seemed to be feeling better yesterday, but T#2 who had been to the doctor on Tuesday seemed to take a turn for the worse yesterday. I suspect that she’ll be going back today. :-(
We had the turkey and stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, sweet potato
We played some Scrabble (T#2 won, with a little help from T#1 and her aunt B). We spent some time outside (it turned out to be a warm and sunny day). We watched the parade and some movies (Aladdin, which I hadn’t seen in ages … I’d forgotten what a cute movie that is ... and Monsters Inc.). We watched some football. And we played a little Wii. It was a long, full day … a wonderful day!
Today is going to be a lazy day here at Nana’s house. We usually put up our Christmas tree on the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving, but I think we’re going to hold off a little this year. We’ll have Ts here next week, and I’d rather leave a lot of room for them to play in our great room. I’ll put the tree up after they’re back home. Instead I think I’ll take it easy … it might be a good day to do some quilting. ;-)
