Thanksgiving

Good morning, it is Friday.

Today is known as Black Friday to the shopping world. Did I get up at the crack of dawn to shopping (I almost said "butt crack of dawn", but that would not have really been pc)??? I will never tell. Ok, you twisted my arm...NO, I did not go shopping this morning. But Hansen is sure hoping that I did. He is the one that I am not telling. Nothing we really needed was worth the trauma. I figure there will be more sales on the stuff we will buying in the coming weeks.

Yesterday we had a very nice Thanksgiving. We had a great turkey and all the trimmings. And great desserts. We watched Elf, and Yes Man. We also played plenty of Beatles Rock Band. Some of us even took a walk around the neighborhood in the rain looking at houses for sale. You can get a very good house for a great price in our neighborhood these days. We enjoyed reading our Thankful leaves and just hanging out.

This is a picture from Stef's phone of us Slane's playing Rock Band. It turned out very yellow, but it is cool, like we are at some cool club rather than just our game room. The best moment of the Rock Band night was hearing Preston sing Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band...He did a great job considering he did not know the song and he was reading the lyrics for the first time. Right now I am listening to Adam Sandler's Thanksgiving song on the XM...very funny!
This picture is of Maren and Preston making very yummy margarita style drinks!
Preston taking his turn melting the sugar on his creme brulee. Hansen did get a turn as well. Lillie was a little scared to hold the flame gun. Good for her.

We had a great Thanksgiving, right now the Christmas tree is being decorated as is the house.

See you tomorrow.
