The beginning of the holiday weekend started on Thursday. We slept in, which is a rarity for me, got up and mixed and baked and cooked all sorts of things for the afternoon feast at Gran Jan’s house. Throw in watching the Macy’s day parade and switching my blog over to Christmas décor, and you’re got my Thursday morning.
After a really late breakfast, we loaded up the cooler with our yummy food, threw on some clothes and a coat or two, and set out for Gran Jan’s house. Once we got there, it was all football, cheese balls, and picture taking. Oh yeah, we did play a game or two in between stuffing our faces. :)
Cranberry sauce and the gravy boat. Somehow I managed to get 3 pictures of the food. Sorry, but it was just too yummy!
Gran Jan had the table set beautifully…
After the DELIOUS meal in which I kinda, sorta, maybe ate way too much, we decided to walk it off. The rest of the pictures are basically scenes from our walk around the neighborhood. Side note: I was trying to be artistic in most of these. I do believe it was an epic fail of sorts. Thoughts?
On the way back, we stopped to say hi to Gran Jan’s neighbor. Her dog was too funny, and I do believe Gran Jan said this picture was a pose and a half. It is totally going on my photo wall, so consider it an honor, Sasha!
We ended our time together with more football and a little pumpkin pie with our whipped cream. Pumpkin pie: get in my belly!
And there you have it: our Turkey Day. Memories had by all…
