Turkey Day

Thanksgiving was a bit different for us this year.  All of my siblings were with their in-laws this year, so we soaked up the simplicity of dinner and a movie with my awesome parents.  

We saw a late morning showing of Rise of the Guardians at the posh Cinetopia.  We lounged in the Movie Parlor, a lavish theater experience where we were served ridiculously overpriced popcorn, gourmet sweet potato fries and the beverages of our choosing.
 The movie was fantastic, enjoyable for all ages!

After the movie, we snuck in a quick nap and then headed to Hayden's for a fine Thanksgiving dining experience.  
I am a sucker for buffets... there's just something about the words ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT that get me licking my chops!
It was a simple and lovely evening spent with my parents, grandparents, Uncle Jack and Uncle Kevin.

The day after Thanksgiving, we set out for a REAL Christmas tree!  We tried the week prior, but apparently  no one selling trees was as gung-ho about us buying one so early.  

This year, we found the perfect Noble at Baggenstos Farm.

Andrew put our Christmas lights up and added a red heart for Zoe in her bedroom window.  I don't think I'll ever take it down.  I love that man.

I've been having a rough few days and decided that making my own mini Thanksgiving feast would cheer me up.  It didn't really work... but it was nice to see my husband enjoy the carb overload of a meal I slaved over after his 12 hour work day.

Sounds like a nice, quiet Thanksgiving. We have had a few of those. :-) I love the heart in the window. What a sweet, thoughtful husband you have, Kacie.
