Long Thanksgiving Weekend!

Hey Everyone!

It has been a long while since I posted. I was off for a whore four days! It felt like forever in some ways and in others it seemed like no time at all. Thursday we spent the day with my family and had a traditional lunch/dinner. For the most part it was a good time. We ate and stayed a bit later to watch a football game. The only hiccup came during that lunch/dinner. My mom, despite being told multiple times not to, tried feeding our son real food. We both told her not to around the same table and she sat right there and did it anyway. Who does that? So I had to yell at her right then and there and take my kid away from them. I’m not really sure what would go though her or anyone’s head in that moment that would let her think it was still OK to do?!? We were understandably furious and it took about every ounce of energy to not pack up our things and leave right then and there. It was over as quick as it happened and we moved on with our day. Here was the nice table setting and my parents village.


After lunch we sampled some fancy fruity beer. My dad got this from a friend of his that passed away. It wasn’t a gift or anything it was just in his refrigerator when they all went to pack up his stuff.


It was really good. I guess it is kind of pricey so I will probably never have it again but it was yummy. The rest of the time there was spent watching the game and watching the kids play.


My mom made that ‘Cars’ blanket for Everett and he likes all the colors in it. Here is my niece playing with some blocks. She likes to give them to people over and over again haha.


She has developed quite the mullet, that you can see in the next picture. Also my older and younger brother.


We got home somewhat early and decided to whip out the large coloring book. My wife brought it from my parent’s house, since some of our stuff is till over there. We are slowly getting it all out. Any way here is the one I did. My wife never can finish one haha.


That leads us to Friday. Friday we got up early and headed to my wife’s mom’s house. Once we wrangled everyone up we ate. Here is a picture of our nephew Carter and my wife’s grandfather Francis.


We ate another traditional Thanksgiving lunch/dinner, and headed home.



Saturday we were supposed to celebrate my older brother’s birthday, but we changed that to Sunday. We were also supposed to go pick up a leather couch for our house, but the lady who was giving it to us was sick. That will wait for another day. So, pretty much all day Saturday I laid on the couch with Everett while Jordyn was editing wedding pictures from the wedding we shot in October.

Sunday we went back to my parents house and met again with everyone on my side of the family for pizza and wings to celebrate my brother’s 35th birthday! Oh course we had ice cream cake from DQ to follow. He brought his new girlfriend, which is nice, because he is in a much better mood. He gets down about life easily and having something or someone in his life helps that. It must be getting serious because he is bringing her around a lot and he met her parents, so you know that is a big step.

Anyway that was my weekend, all in all it was a great way to spend my time off. I hope that we can all get and stay healthy the rest of this winter, fingers crossed. I’ll see you all again tomorrow! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
