My goal for Thanksgiving was simple: Keep it low key. Even though I cooked the full meal and didn’t skimp on the menu, the rest of Thanksgiving was simple and laid back. My sister and her family came into town, we shopped, she helped in the kitchen, and we saw a movie. Things just flowed along, and I didn’t bring out my camera once, evident by the poor quality photo of our dinner, complete with catching Jackson mid-blink.
I wanted to enjoy myself, so that meant keeping plans to a minimum. It worked, too, because we had a lovely few days together.
When Jeremy and Owen weren’t gaming, they were enjoying their mounds of Pokemon cards.
Jacob DROVE me to get donuts. I wasn’t nervous at all because he’s an excellent driver. It was weird though, because it’s Jacob. He was just born a few years ago, right?
Jackson used his money to buy another pillow pet – this time, he chose a West Virginia Mountaineer. I was pleased!
And Jeremy finally saved enough money to buy an iPod Touch. He’s been waiting nearly two years for this moment.
In hindsight it might have been nice to set up the tripod and capture a full family photo with all eight of us, but I really liked keeping my duties to a minimum. Maybe next time 🙂
