Thanksgiving Weekend Goings On

Sunday, November 29, 2009

It's been a heck of a weekend here at the Goff House! My 34th birthday came on my biggest cooking day of the year, the day before Thanksgiving... so, needless to say, I didn't do much for my birthday this year unless of course, you count cooking! Thanksgiving day, we took the opportunity to grab a few photos of our little family and then headed off to my sister Sherry's place where we would later stuff ourselves full of turkey - Gobble Gobble!

The next day I joined the hundreds of crazed shoppers at our local Walmart and grabbed some Christmas presents. After recuperating that morning, Grace tried on her new cooking outfit (isn't she a doll?!),

and we also drug out some Christmas decorations. The tree was up and on went the ornaments.

Grace LOVED decorating the tree. She also thought Daddy's new A Christmas Story lamp ornament was funny.

That night we caught New Moon at the drive-in. Garrett went with us, but Grace had her VERY first overnighter away from home... at Grandma's house!

I think they had a really good time and Grace got to stay up waaaayyyy past her bedtime. Ah, the advantages of Grandma's house!

Later on Saturday, we decided to light up the fire pit. It was as great night for it. Made me yearn to go camping!
