Our Thanksgiving, Part Two
I planned to write a detailed post about the rest of our Thanksgiving weekend. Unfortunately, I am under the weather. Hopefully, it is just a cold, and it will pass soon. I am sure it will seem that I am giving the day with my husband's family the short end of the stick. However, all of his immediate family was present; so, unlike Thanksgiving with my family, no one will be counting on my description of the day. Here's the abbreviated version: 1. We spent several hours on Friday with almost 40 of my hubby's closest relatives. His family is great, and I enjoyed seeing them all. Because I only have one cousin on my dad's side and two on my mom's, the size of my husband's family was overwhelming when I first met them. Now, I enjoy getting together with all of them so much. There is never a dull moment! I used to feel young at these gatherings because my husband is one of the younger cousins. That feeling is changing. On Friday, I got to see one of my flower girls who is now a freshman in college. That makes me realize I am not one of the youngsters in the bunch anymore! 2. After visiting for a while with the big group, my husband's immediate family (his mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law, and three kiddos) came to our house for the rest of the day. My husband's sister and her family live in Georgia, so we don't see them as much as we would like. The kids had a ball playing together, and the grown-ups enjoyed visiting. 3. On Saturday, we put up our Christmas decorations. My kids are still amazed at the simple things. When I plugged in the lights, my Best Girl said, "Wow! That is so cool!" She also said, "Dad, do you remember? We even did this last year!" It was so cute! 4. Now, I am sick! I am thankful, however, that I made it through all the fun before coming down with something. We had such a wonderful week, and I am glad I was able to enjoy every minute! I'm off to the couch. I'll be back soon!
