Dinner was delicious and my very good friend Sey joined us this year, it was so much fun to have her there. She has always been like a part of our family and fit right in. She and I got to have a sleepover that night at my mom's and S took the kids home to put them to bed. Sey, my sister K and I played HOTELS (favorite childhood board game) while sipping wine. Sey beat the pants off of us and I lost my hotel fortune to her but it was so nice to spend time together and enjoy the quiet.
Friday we went down to S's parents house and went to pick out their Christmas Tree. My children have never experienced the process of cutting down a tree so this was so much fun for them. It is the earliest my in-laws have ever had their tree but they wanted to involve the children and my sister and brother in-law. It was a true family adventure.
Saturday after decorating our tree, we went to my sister's for the annual family Festivus celebration. The years my brother in-law has to work on Thanksgiving (he is a police officer) she hosts a Festivus. This celebration is complete with the airing of grievances, feats of strength and next year will hopefully have a pole :)
Here are some more photos of our weekend, I hope you had a special Thanksgiving Weekend!!
