Then we headed over to my mom and dad's house for Thanksgiving #1 (aka the only Thanksgiving that I took pictures at, because I'm lame and forgot to even get the camera out at the Herndons.)
My Grandad George turned 90 last week!
Being silly trying to make my Grandad Robert smile. It is hard work!
Self-proclaimed "BFFs" = Scary.
We celebrated my grandad and my brother's birthday along with Thanksgiving.
And we took a semi-decent picture on the first try!
Patrick's parents joined us at my parents' house on Thursday since we weren't eating at their house until Friday. It was nice to have everyone all together!
We spent all day Friday lounging around and doing a lot of nothing, which is of course my favorite. I did go on a walk with a friend and make a green bean casserole to take to the Herndons. We had dinner with them and Patrick's brothers' family and his aunt and uncle around 6:00. We took the camera and everything and I forgot to even get it out! But it was an awesome meal and a good relaxing time.
Saturday, my mom and I set out early to do some Christmas shopping. Surprisingly it wasn't crowded. We enjoyed just hanging out, shopping, and having lunch at Panera Bread. Then she dropped me off at the Herndons where they were all gathered to watch the Tennessee game. I played with my niece and nephews and ate another helping of pumpkin pie!
Sunday, we enjoyed the first service of Advent at church. Then stopped by Lowe's and ended up seeing one of our friends who works there and his wife who had stopped by to visit him. We had just seen her at church but hadn't really had a chance to talk and catch up, so that was nice! We got lunch at Sonic and came home to start the Christmas decorating!
I look fat, but my front pockets are actually full of zip-ties with which to attach the lights to the roof, just to clarify.
