The Thanksgiving Holiday break started for me on Tuesday. Dad picked both boys up from school/daycare Tuesday afternoon and took them to Tullahoma. After work on Tuesday I was officially done for the rest of the week! I met Michael at Brixx pizza and we had a nice quiet dinner. It was a great dinner except for the gravel in my quatro formaggio pizza. After supper we went home to watch Breaking Bad and I made homemade ice cream.
On Wednesday I did a few piddly things at work and then Michael and I headed to Manchester to spend the night at Nana and Papa's house. When we got there Em and her crew were already there. We ate pizza and then Em put her boys to bed. After the boys were asleep we spent the rest of the evening in the playroom watching Youtube videos. I don't remember the last time I have laughed that hard for that long - my cheeks hurt from laughing.
We quickly went from laughing to being grossed out.
As a side note, mom took this picture and 91 more just like it (no joke). Then she somehow turned the iphone camera around on herself and took a few of herself taking pictures of us.
Thanksgiving dinner was served around 2:30. Sam slept through the entire meal. The food was great! We had turkey (made by Papa), Salmon (made by me), sweet potato casserole, asian slaw, grape salad, strawberry pretzel salad, and rolls. Midway through lunch Finn woke up and came strolling in the dining room in his underwear.
Then we opened our Christmas ornaments. Finn got a "Monsters Inc." ornament; Sam got a "singing hound dog" and I got a "Mischievous Kitten" and a "Winnie the Pooh"
The next morning I woke up and went for a quick run. When I got back we packed up the car to go home while Nana and Finn went on their special walk around the property. I have no idea what they do on those walks but it must be fun because Finn always asks to go. While they were walking Sam and I read "Deck the Halls" as illustrated by Norman Rockwell. Sam loves this book.
Sam feeling a little left out because it was too cold for him to go on the walk.
After everyone had pottied we packed the boys in the car. As we were pulling out of the driveway Finn told Nana, "Nana, please watch out for the evil Shredder."
"I'm being silly daddy," said Sam.
