What a wonderful, full, crazy, hectic, fun, and thankful holiday weekend I had. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and this year we headed down to DE to spend it with my family.
It didn’t start off quite like I wanted. I ended up eating something that was in the fridge too long so the trip down left a quick road side emergency stop to make my tummy feel better. There’s nothing like a guard railing to remind you of the comforts of home. We made is down late to my parents, but safe and feeling a little better.
Thanksgiving day for me is all about the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I watched and called the kids in for their favorite parts, and enjoyed the holiday tradition. I have to say it’s got me excited to see a few of the shows on Broadway right now! After the parade it was time for some fun. I won a Razor Crazy Cart a year ago and my parents have the perfect driveway to play. It was a fun time, for everyone and Eleanor got a great driving lesson from Uncle. Always remembering safety first! (Note: Camden is pushing the cart, it is no on in the below photo)
A little afternoon bocce ball, a meat and cheese turkey to keep us from going hungry and a few games of Quick Cups while we waited for the bird to cook. Dinner was delish and my favorite part was Camden wanted to say what he was thankful for first. He said it was his Mom and Dad and being with family. Eleanor was thankful for all of those as well, but chose to list all the family members.
Of course there was also some Black Friday shopping. We hit both the outlets and I made out with some new fabric from Jo-Ann. Lots of holiday projects coming soon!
The biggest fun was our trip to see Father Christmas at Santa Lodge in Felton. Whenever we’re in DE around the holidays this is a must for us to schedule. I love that we get one on one interaction with Father Christmas and I can take as many pictures as I want. It’s also nice that we can go as a family and the kids aren’t rushed. If you live in the area call and book an appointment. You won’t be disappointed!
The rest of our weekend was spent at home getting things done around the house, pulling out Christmas decor and working on a lot of projects for the blog. I lost my cool a few times with the kids, and have had to remind myself to pull back and focus on what’s important. I’m thankful for my family, health and all that 2015 has brought to my family. I’m also thankful that I was able to spend time with them and that we were able to sit down and enjoy a wonderful meal and holiday together.
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend and I’m thankful for all of you who follow along on my adventure!
