Happy Thanksgiving weekend!  We were blessed to have some gals come over from our local Community College to spend time with our family.  I cooked everything...which if you know me...all I really do is crockpot cooking!  I made mashed potatoes and stuffing in the crockpot.  These turned out really yummy.  I also made turkey, gravy, green bean casserole, apple pie, pumpkin pie, then rolls and cranberry sauce (from the can!).  Cranberry sauce and rolls were about the only thing the kids ate.  Oh well....can't please them all.

The girls really seemed to enjoy it.  They came over early evening and stayed until the kids bedtimes.  Both kids loved having them here.  Tim and I enjoyed it too.  Soheila is from Iran and the other two, Saya and Reika are from Japan.  We had some good (and funny) conversations.  Madelyn always shows off and puts on quite a show when we have guests over.  And you never know what's going to come out of her she keeps us on our toes.

This morning, we put up Christmas decorations inside the house then headed to Family Christian to do some shopping.  That's normally the only store we hit up on Black Friday.  There was nobody there...except one of my old students, Danielle!  It was so great seeing she and her mom.  Miss that girl and her chattiness.  We found some gifts and of course, new music for us!  The kids are always crazy in stores when they're not tied in a cart.  Madelyn ended up knocking a shelf over right before we left.  Crazy kid.

Madelyn, Heather and I were planning to head downtown this evening to see the Christmas tree lighting, but it started snowing and getting really cold.  Good thing we didn't go since there was a protest!  We ended up staying inside, eating leftovers and watching "Frozen".  We are decorating the church tomorrow morning then hopefully going to see Santa tomorrow night.  We'll see what the day brings.  Sunday we might go downtown in the evening if it's not too cold or go to Tee's house and watch a Christmas movie while the boys watch the soccer playoffs.

Fun and busy weekend!  Hope you had a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!
