thanksgiving weekend

we had a good thanksgiving weekend. because we didn't have internet access on wednesday, i had three work days off, which was very nice. brian worked a bit, but he made some good headway on things that have to get done. below is the rundown of the weekend.

tuesday night it was predicted that we would have a big, bad winter storm. it never materialized, but william and i did have wednesday off.

thursday we drove up to my mom's house and had thanksgiving up there with mom, kyle, amy, jackson, whitney, matt, and matt (w and m's friend). the food was great. i love turkey and all the trimmings, but mostly turkey is my favorite. william decided he liked turkey too. he wanted a whole leg to himself, and he at the whole leg. it was so filling that that (and a little jello) was all he had for dinner.

friday, william and i did a little shopping. i even toyed with the idea of getting a real tree, but when push came to shove, i opted to use our fake tree. i also finally splurged and got us our first tree topper and the big old-fashioned christmas lights that i like so much. neither of those are really splurges, but it was exciting to finally have them.

saturday, we went out to eat with my mom and kyle and amy to the purple turtle. given our love of turtles, we have wanted to eat there for a long time. we all enjoyed a good burger. then the three of us went to a couple di's. later that night we decorated our tree with whitney and matt.

on saturday night/sunday morning we got our first big snow storm of the season. i got to shovel, which was a good workout.
