Every year the students at our school dress up for Thanksgiving. I love going in and seeing all the Pilgrims and Indians. Though I have to say that it seems there are more and more Indians every year. Every year I also get a picture or two of my grandchildren all dressed up. This may be the last year they all dress up as my grandson is getting to be too "cool" to do some things. LOL
See, the Indians even outnumber the Pilgrims in my family! I love taking this picture every year because I did get a picture of my three children in their Thanksgiving costumes one year and I'm sorry now that I didn't do it more often.
I have to say that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. This year my mom visited and we had a wonderful time. When your mom is 90, you never know how many more holidays you will have. I'm so thankful that we had this time to share with her. My grandchildren were so excited to have her visit.
As you can see, that is my son-in-law doing the dishes in the background. He's such a good guy. Does the dishes every year.
We had so much wonderful food and I enjoyed every last bite.
Yesterday it was off to Black Friday for seven hours of shopping! I have to admit I got myself some goodies. Joann's had lots of great deals. You should have seen the checkout line! I know some people think I'm crazy, but I think I enjoy spending the day with my daughter more than anything.
Today I stayed with my grandchildren while my daughter and son-in-law went to a Trans Siberian Orchestra concert. It was back to the mall with my husband (you would never see him there on Black Friday) and grandchildren with a stop at the candy store so the kids could pick out their very own candy, a walk around the mall, and a stop at the coffee shop to pick up hot chocolates. Yes, lots of sugar. What are grandparents for? Well, that seemed to backfire as I still have the kids and they seem to have so much more energy!
Hope your holiday was as special as mine was. The next few weeks will be full of fun and festivities!
