For our long Thanksgiving Holiday weekend Grandparents Foley came up to keep us some company. What was expected to be a gloomy and rainy few days turned out to be not so bad at all.
Like almost every other American we celebrated Thanksgiving. My sweet, thoughtful, amazing and hunky husband went ahead and ordered a pre-cooked Thanksgiving meal for us while I was away on my girls trip the weekend before, so that I wouldn’t have to be cooking all day. Turned out that the “pre-cooked” meal did indeed require quite a bit of cooking after all. And of course I wanted to add some of the dishes that are a tradition in our household that were not included in the pre-ordered meal.
But all in all it wasn’t too hectic. Things went smooth and delicious if I don’t say so myself. Plus this was the first year I’ve done Thanksgiving dinner all on my own. Last year was my first year hosting, but my mother was here and did at least half of the work : )
Sadie got to celebrate yet another birthday. Her Grandparents hadn’t seen her since her birthday in October so they came bearing gifts. I think she is expecting a birthday party at least once a month at this point. And the fact that Hanukkah is in a week and Christmas 2 weeks later isn’t helping… what a rough life this poor kid has.
After reviewing the photos from the weekend I realize besides for eating and opening gifts we apparently rode a lot of rides!
We took Sadie to the steam trains in Tilden Park for the first time. It turned out to be way cooler than I thought it would be and I’m looking forward to going again sometime soon. I also found out that dogs are allowed on too… maybe Berkeley would want a little choo choo action in her life.
And of course the trusty ol’ zoo always has everything that this child could possibly want: a petting zoo, animals, a playground and of course more rides.
But mostly our holiday was spent lounging around the house being cozy and strolling the neighborhood as it begins to turn very colorful and festive for the Christmas season.
Hope your Thanksgiving was a good one and welcome to December! Just remembered… isn’t the world ending in like a few days??
