Thanksgiving Weekend

We spent Thanksgiving with Ed's side of the family and had a fantastic weekend! We spent Thanksgiving morning watching the Macy's parade, I love just seeing all the floats go by! Then we got ready and went to Ed and Anna's for some delicious turkey! That night poor Ed had to go to bed super early since he A. Felt like crap and had what we will now call the Plague and B. had to be up at 1AM to monitor the Target website (thanks Target). Quick backstory on the plague....when we were in Orlando Janet had supposedly given John her cold....John gave it to me....I gave it to Ed (I mean thanksgiving IS for giving!!)...it then quadrupled in severity for poor hubby. Hopefully the chain of sharing the cold will stop there....but Janet did drink from a cup clearly marked Ed...so the Plague may be back at the Geary household...sorry guys! :)

Thanksgiving night while Ed slept I watched Elf with John and Janet. I really think I could watch that movie every day and never get sick of it, one of my all time favorite Christmas movies! Janet and I were going to go shopping at Target at midnight so I could get the sweet deal on the Ipad but we just got to cozy on the couch. We did manage to get to Target by 9am on black Friday though. Didn't get any crazy deals but was still nice to be out to check it out. We lounged around the rest of the day until Nate and Lesley arrived. When they did we bundled up and headed to the beach so Maverick, Max, and Sammy could walk on the beach...Maverick also thought 30 degree water was perfect for swimming so he took a few laps in Lake Michigan too, crazy dog! That night we went out for a nice dinner and when we came home we celebrated Christmas since we won't be in Michigan for Christmas this year. Ed and I made out like bandits!!! Thanks Janet and John for all the great gifts! Later we did Fondue and watched Christmas Vacation (another top 5 Christmas movie of mine!)

Maverick after his bath (he got stinky swimming in the lake)
On the Saturday we saw the Muppets!! It was really cute. Ed is a huge Muppet fan so he was really excited to go. I'm pretty sure we were the only people there without kids...oh well :) Saturday night we had a cookie decorating contest between Ed, Lesley, Nate, and I. I don't mean to brag or anything...but I did win first place haha :) We all had some great cookies!! After cookies we played a bunch of games. I think my favorite part was on one game we all had to write a phrase that started "I like" about Janet, it could be true or funny.....then they all got read out loud. Ed and I both put "I like big butts and I can not lie". I was laughing so hard my stomach hurt, as was everybody else.....there were billions of things we could have put and thats what we both chose....if that's not a sign that we were meant for each other I don't know what is haha :) Sunday we left bright and early for the every enjoyable 9 hour drive home. It was a great thanksgiving weekend with our family! Now bring on Christmas!!!
