Thanksgiving

We had a pretty good Thanksgiving besides the fact that we weren't with our family. But we have some pretty great friends here that we have made and had a wonderful day! We hosted it at our house this year! What was on our menu you ask? Well, we had roasted stuffed turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, candied yams with marshmellows, carmelized butternut squash (turned out so yummy), green bean casserole, stuffing, cornbread casserole, develed eggs, cranberries and rolls! We had a feast!! Then everyone was so full to even eat dessert haha! We had pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin pie, chocolate pudding pie, pumpkin rolls, and pecan pie!

The girls of course had a great time playing with their friend Noah and Aiden and Amelia!! There room was of course trashed, but as long as they had fun I guess haha!

I put our Christmas tree up last week but didn't decorate it. So this morning the girls and I decorated it!! Dave is asleep because he had to work, so he missed out...but he is going to hang our outside lights this weekend!! The girls helped a lot this year and they hung all of the ornaments on the bottom of the tree. Now if I can just keep the kitties out of our tree we will be all good haha..the black one (Tux) seems to climb up the middle of the tree and sit there haha..she didnt do that until I put the lights on it. Gotta figure something out!

We have this weekend off, but unfortunately Dave has to work. He went to work last night all stuffed with Turkey and he works tonight and tomorrow night as well. So he spends his days sleeping while we are awake...and let me tell you trying to keep the girls quiet so he can sleep is a real chore!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! We really missed being with our family. Just glad we have met wonderful people to celebrate the holidays with! We are all in the same boat being so far away!! Maybe next year we can fly back to the states for Christmas if we save enough money for 4 plane tickets! We shall see...

Oh and last weekend we got Dave a car that he can drive to and from work. Its getting cold out and the roads have aleady been icy a few times. So this car is in pretty good condition for the year! Its a 1995 with 114K miles on it! Not too bad!
