Thanksgiving Weekending.

I've already shared much of Saturday and Sunday's activities, so today, I have just three more stories. First up, the food.
Our "turkey sandwich Thanksgiving" was a huge hit. I decided we needed homemade sides so I did end up cooking more than I'd planned. Going along with the sandwich theme I made kale and brussels sprout slaw and in lieu of potato salad (Marc doesn't eat them) found a delicious wild rice stuffing (gotta love the Pioneer Woman - that's prosciutto frying upper right :-) I also made blue cheese dip to accompany store-bought potato chips. We repeated the whole thing on Friday when we visited Katie. and then again on Saturday and Sunday and we have one more meal to go - pretty good mileage for a few hours of cooking. I even got to watch the parade!

The highlight of Friday's visit with Katie's family was putting up the tree in the boys' playroom. We took over the tree and box of ornaments that Charlie and I put up last year.
In spite of Sam's best efforts to eat the ornaments, Marc and Charlie did a fine job getting them up on the tree. I must say, our playroom seems quite bare this year, but I'm delighted the tree is going to see a whole lot of fun in its new home. (and I didn't make a single "suggestion" this year about anything!)

And finally, one more from yesterday. My nephew (Lydia's son Andrew) starts a new job in Washington DC on December 4. We had a send-off lunch for him at a local pub and even managed a photo.
(great food, plenty of beer ... and of course the best company!) 

Today felt oddly quiet around here. I did do a little bit of decorating; for the first time in a few years, I think I'm going to be ready when December 1 comes!  Hope your week is off to a promising start as well.

All that food looks good enough to eat! Good to see the boys...and welcome to Andrew; hope he like DC!

Your food looks so much better than our leftover turkey sandwiches, and I think I'd eat almost anything if it had fried prosciutto in it ("like meaty potato chips")! I'm sure Christmas with the boys will get more fun every year, with less eating of the ornaments. Safe travels and best wishes to Andrew as he heads north to his new adventure!

What a wonderful weekend! So many good things to celebrate! I don't usually start my decorating until December rolls around -- but I'm certainly getting ready to begin. Best of luck to Andrew! It's so exciting to see our adult kids launch into their own adventures. XO

You had a little of everything this weekend, family, food, decorating and quiet time. How fun to help the boys decorate in their own home and now with their own tree! Your family pictures are just the best!

I love the idea of a sandwich Thanksgiving...I might steal that when the kids are here over the Christmas holiday... Anyways, looks like you had fun with the people you love.
