Bryan and I started our break with Mom and Rachel coming down on Tuesday night and spending the night with us. We got up early on Wednesday and went shopping at Market. Too bad our favorite Christmas guy wasn't opened! Darn it! We still enjoyed ourselves and had a great afternoon!
Bryan and I came home and packed, then got on the road to Lorena. After only 3 hrs :) we made it to Lorena where my Mom greeted us with my favorite dinner, beef stroganoff! Yum! We had dinner, my hubby got a haircut (about time!), and I relaxed at home while Bryan and Chalen went to see Harry Potter.
Thanksgiving morning, we woke up, watched the Macy's Day Parade for a little while, then got ready and headed down to my grandparent's house in Brady. Thank goodness Chandler drove and Bryan and I napped for most of the 2.5 hrs! Thanks Chan! ;) We made it to the dairy and the Thanksgiving festivities began!
Here are some pictures my mom took during the day!

After we finished lunch, most of us headed back to Lorena. Chessa (my sister who's a nurse) had to work the night shift, so we had to leave early. Chandler and Daddy stayed to go deer hunting. Chandler got his first buck of the season the next morning!
Thursday night was spend lounging around the house! Mama and I went over to visit Melisa because it was her birthday, and Marsha and the girls were visiting for Thanksgiving so I went to say hello to them. It was fun catching up!
Friday we slept in, then me, Bryan, Mama, and Chalen all went out and had lunch at Rosa's and then did some light shopping. It was busy, but thankfully all the Black Friday crazies were mostly gone! Bryan and I headed back home to Rockwall on Friday night, slept in on Saturday and then went and did our monthly grocery shopping!
Saturday night, we had the pleasure of going back to Edison's (where we had our wedding reception) to celebrate Eddie and Allison's 10th wedding anniversary! It was beautiful, the band was great, food was delicious, and we had a blast! Our favorite thing was probably the photobooth!
Sunday we went to church, my baby took me to lunch at my favorite, Johnny Carino's and then we went to Walmart to get some Christmas lights. Bryan spent the afternoon putting up our lights and I did lots of laundry! We're going to get our tree soon and will have Christmas decoration pictures to post when we're finished!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving break spent with your family that was as blessed as ours!
