We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I hope you did too! We headed to Central VA Wednesday afternoon to spend Thursday morning/early afternoon with my parents. We started the morning off with a delicious, home cooked, southern breakfast and followed it up with a hike along Skyline Drive. It was beautiful morning, sunny and in the 50s, and the perfect activity before pigging out. Late afternoon we headed to my in-laws for the Thanksgiving meal with hub's family and our niece and two nephews.
Saturday we ventured to the mall just before midnight for about a half hour. Just long enough to see all the crazies lined up around the buildings waiting to be let in. I swear that's the best part, forget shopping, seeing all the crazies was a hoot. That's not to say I didn't take full advantage of the Cyber Monday, or Cyber Week, deals. As of today I am more than half way done with my Christmas shopping -- yay!
I plan to tackle Christmas cards and wrapping the gifts this week and then I'll be done(!) and able to fully enjoy the Christmas season.
Here's a few of my favorites of the week.
We have become OBsessed with this lately.
