Exactly two weeks and one day after the fact, I present Thanksgiving 2012....

We headed out early Wednesday morning to my Mom's house.  We made it there in record time and Mags did pretty well.  We joked that if we have another kid, it is probably going to be the devil and a horrible traveler...LOL

We got there in time for some lunch.  My bestie came over for a visit and it was a nice afternoon.  Then that evening my brother and sister-in-law made it in and we hung out that night.

Thanksgiving morning, Mags was up at her normal time (doesn't she know holidays are meant for sleeping in???) and we had breakfast, and hung out with Grammy and Unka Ben!  Then it was time for the Macy's parade.  Mags actually watched it for awhile and then she was done.  That was ok, because around that time it was time to get dressed and ready to eat.

Now for the majority of the month leading up to Thanksgiving, we had been talking about what the day was all about, giving thanks, being with family and the FOOD.  Mags loved reciting the list of food and one morning, when I went to get her up for the day she told me that she had dreamt about cranberry sauce that night....Well, I guess that was a little sign, because the cranberry sauce was her fave!  She ate a little bit of everything and had a great time.  Then it was on to Round 2 at my Dad's house...

It was another round of yummy food and fun times.  Mags had a great time. She REALLY enjoyed the chocolate chip cookies....LOL. 
She is just too cool!!!
Mags went down pretty easily that night and since I had just a few more people to get Christmas presents for, I decided to go out for the first time with my Stepmother and sister for Black Friday shopping....actually Thursday, because we left at 10:30 that night and we didn't get back till 5:30 on was brutal.  I did get all the gifts I needed, but the minute I walked into the room we were sharing with Maggie to finally go to sleep, she woke up.  At 5:30 AM....luckily I have a saint for a husband and he went to bed early on Thursday because he knew this would happen....LOL

Needless to say the rest of Friday was spent relaxing, and then that night we went and saw "Breaking Dawn" (my second time). 

Saturday was another relaxing morning and the we headed home.

We timed it pretty well and someone (me included) took a nice nap on the way home.


We spent the rest of Saturday decorating our house.


Then on Sunday we headed over to the in laws to help with their decorating.

Overall, a busy but super fun weekend!!!  And a great kickoff to the holiday season.
Hope you're having a great day!
