Thanksgiving Break Wrap Up!

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

I hope you had a relaxing Thanksgiving and hopefully at least one or two days off for the holiday. Here's some highlights from our Thanksgiving Break...

I have been raking leaves for a couple years with a broken rake. I finally realized... I can just got get a new rake! I got this big boy. One or two swipes and my yard should look perfect, right?

I did a lot of puzzles and Christmas was always right up there in my business.

On Thanksgiving Eve, we went to our friend Emily's house for her Thanksgiving Eve party. I don't see Emily nearly enough, so it was great to reconnect!

We got to see my family and Paul's family on Thanksgiving and it wasn't too hectic or rushy. I'm thankful for that. Thanks for hosting, Steph and Ken!

Grandma and Auntie Eileen

My awesome SIL, Debby

The kids played dress up...

My Daddio and I went for a trail run at Detweiler Park. We saw several deer and the whole run was beautiful.

I organized a lot of my old keepsakes and found a bunch of gems... including my college ID card and this sweet autographed picture Tia and Tamara Mowery sent me.

Of course I wrote one of the best letters.

Paul and I went to the Carlisle Gift Show where my mom was a vendor. She sells her crocheted hats and knitted scarves. Check out Hats By Peach!

At the craft show, we got this awesome AT sign to hang! I love it!

Tell me some highlights from your Thanksgiving!


  1. I enjoyed a very relaxing time off. Its always tempting to just GO, GO, GO, when we have time off from work but that just wasn't what I was into this year!
    Now you have to tell us the story of how you got an autographed Tia and Tamara photo...haha

    1. Me and my best friend were obsessed with the Mowery twins. We even dressed like twins at school. I was Tia and she was Tamara. We actually called each other by those names

  2. I love your Tia and Tamara picture! I loved their show when I was growing up. I think they are on TV still?

    My break was mostly relaxing... we traveled to Clay's parents and ate a nice dinner and came back with a ton of leftovers, but besides that, I laid around and rested a lot! I needed it... also read and cleaned a lot :).

    1. I think at least Tamara is on a talk show. Now sure about Tia. My 12 year old self would be mad that I didn't know this!

      Thanksgiving leftovers are the best! I'm glad you had a relaxing weekend. You deserve it after all the campaigning!

  3. Oh, how I love Thanksgiving break! We had our normal/quiet/stay at home Thanksgiving. Cooked a feast, put up the tree, watched a ton of football. We also did see The Grinch on Saturday. That movie makes me laugh. The Grinch is SO mean but like I told Rick "sometimes people really do annoy me that much but I control myself from acting like the Grinch". OMG, Clark in the dress. LOVE!!

    1. How many times do you think they will keep redoing the grinch movie??? Do you have a favorite version?

  4. It was low key, even the Thanksgiving meal. I got out of work around 12:30, which was awesome, so I had 2.5 days off, then the weekend. I'm cross stitching a Christmas stocking for my cousin's daughter, and I got a lot done on it.
