A Great Thanksgiving Weekend

Usually, a four-day weekend by itself is something to be thankful for, but this past Thanksgiving weekend was especially great.  Our weekend started on Thursday, by watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  Later, we went to my Mom’s for the traditional Thanksgiving lunch/dinner.  It has actually evolved from a traditional Thanksgiving dinner to include several filipino and Indian cuisines, but yes, we still have turkey and stuffing.  The food was excellent as we all ate until we were full (and then some).  Afterwards, we gathered around the TV to partake in some traditional video games, Rock Band and some Super Mario Bros. Wii.  In between games, we ate some more. 

On Black Friday, we made sure to avoid the shopping areas, but instead hung around the house in the morning.  Later in the afternoon, when it was safe, we ventured out to the stores and picked up some items.  The stores weren’t too crowded by the time we went out, so I guess most people got their shopping in in the morning.  Afterwards, we continued another long-standing Thanksgiving tradition and went back to my mom’s to finish up the leftovers.  On Saturday, we decided to relax and stick around the house.  The weather was so nice, we were able to play some baseball out in the yard.  Annalise, Isabella, me, and even Nathaniel took turns pitching and hitting.  Sunday was an even better day weather-wise than Saturday.  We decided to go to a nearby beach to get some fresh air, and apparently everyone else did too as the playground at the beach was packed!  The weather was also better than expected because it wasn’t windy at all as we were expecting.  Check out the pictures below to see some highlights from our weekend.  Click on the picture to see the original size, hover your mouse over the picture for a quick description.
