This felt like an exceptionally long weekend since mine technically started on Wednesday! Woo to the hoo! We spent Wednesday night with two of our favorite people doing one of our favorite things…drinking wine!
Junior found this really neat little place, Parallel Wine Bistro, that allows you to serve yourself wine by the taste, half glass or full glass. In all, I think there were at least 20 wines to try. The boys mostly stuck to beer but the Junior and I went down the line and tasted almost every one available!
Thursday was spent cooking and getting ready for Thanksgiving. We didn’t make our usual trip to visit my parents which gave me a pretty big case of the sads. We did get to the spend the holiday with Mathlete’s parents which was really nice!
We had all the traditional Thanksgiving things including a pumpkin pie that H made.
After stuffing ourselves with yummy food, we got to have a special visit with my parents! Isn’t the internet awesome?!
A little nap to get ready and then we literally shopped until we dropped! So, we spent most of Friday sleeping.
Saturday was the yearly Christmas decorating marathon.

We finished about 95% of the outdoor decorating and a good chunk of the stuff indoors too. I’ll be sharing pictures of all that once I finally get around to taking some. We capped off Saturday night with homemade pizza!
Sunday, Junior and I got up extra early and headed off to the mall for
One of the best parts of the class was the pre-store opening shopping and the 10% off discount. L-O-V-E!
The guys met us with the kids for our annual Santa picture taking. While we waited, there was lots to look at such as polar bears and snow.
We had a struggle getting all of the kids to look the same way at the same time. Santa was very patient.
Did you get an extra long weekend? Spend some time with Santa? Or maybe you just vegged out with family?
