Thanksgiving and such.....

I admit I have not been as vigilant as I should be, so I guess I will try to play "catch-up".

Ryan's Mom was good enough to come and stay with the children so Ryan and I could go and enjoy the Monday Night Football Game in Denver. We enjoyed ourselves immensely by gorging ourselves at Maggiano's and other wonderful local eateries; sleeping in; experiencing a massage at a local spa; followed by the game. Ahh... what a nice trip. I had a blast. Thanks Ryan!

Thanksgiving was fantastic (if I do say so myself). But, I do have to admit, I was worried about the food. Not because of my mother in law- but because of . . . okay, my mother in law. Surprisingly, it couldn't have turned out better. Really. It was a bittersweet day, since I fixed most of the things my mom loved and fixed for us every year, like pistachio salad, great grandma's stuffing and morning breakfast pull-aparts. Yum.. my favorites!

Braxton made this lovely turkey hat at school for the occasion. How Festive!

Thanksgiving spread! Proof that I actually can cook!

And last, but certainly not least, I have been lost the last few days without my BFF. I didn't realize how much I depend on her to 'talk me down' or just make me laugh. Get home Joon, or else!!! :)
