I hope all of you had a fantastic thanksgiving. I seriously Gobbled well not until i wobbled, but until my pants felt a little uncomfortable hahaha. I was a very full little mama after dinner at my grandmother's house. She's the best cook in the world.
|Seating for 14 and the Kids Table|
Usually everyone brings something to help out with the cooking, this year I brought desserts, I made Cinnabon Bread and What my grandma calls "Cristina's Pie" I have yet to come up with a name for it. It's one of my homemade- no bake creations.
|We never have enough pictures together, and I'm supposed to be working on a scrapbook for us, so I always jump at the chance on holidays.|
Well like Thanksgiving traditional I got up at 2:30am in the morning, after getting maybe half a wink of sleep (my baby girl was being very cranky) and I shopped till about 7am. I actually did very good and spent alot less then I intended. I made somewhat of a video that you guys can see below. This year was the first year I didn't have anyone to go with so I thought I would make it fun and record somethings. I litterally got out of bed, threw on a sweater and coat and left the house, so excuse my 2am looks lol.

Then after shopping and hiding the presents from our daughter, we had black friday dinner(basically thanksgiving again!) at the family in laws, and this time I made sure I didnt eat too much. I made mac and cheese which everyone loved. When we got home we cleaned up the living room and set up our christmas tree, which afterwards our daughter decided she was going to knock over. Thank goodness we opted for a fake tree this year. I could just imagine the pine needles on the hardwood floors. eeek!
