Back to the real world...

Ok, now that I got the hard part out of the way, let's get on with the good stuff.

Thanksgiving Day...

I had Jeremy's entire family at my house (except for his sister). That is 16 total including us...
  • Grandma & Grandpa Ham (Jeremy's mom & dad)

  • Jeremy's oldest brother and his wife and their 4 kids

  • Jeremy's older brother and his wife and their 3 kids
  • Me, Jeremy & Lil'D


Here is my first turkey fresh from the oven!

It was absolutely perfect! I am so proud...and thankful to Martha!! (Stewart, that is). I dry brined it for 12 hours and roasted it for about 3 hours. I also made dressing and fresh steamed green beans. Jeremy's mom brought homemade mashed potatoes and gravy...they were yummy! There was lots of food and we ate and ate! Lil'D didn't do to well this thanksgiving. He had one bite of mashed potatoes and a taste of dressing. He ate 2 cups of strawberry yogurt. My little picky eater has arrived. He drank all his milk though!

We spent the rest of the evening looking at ads and planning our attack for Friday.

Black Friday...

My sweet Jeremy got up at 5:45am and went to Home Depot and got my beautiful $199.99reg price LED prelit Christmas tree for $49.99!! Lil'D and I woke up at around 7:30am and Jeremy had already taken the tree out of the box and put it together! We finished decorating the tree on Sunday night.

Here is the final result:

Lil'D had a wonderful time playing with the beads, putting the ornaments on the bottom branches and throwing ornaments on the tree and watching them stick. He also enjoys running the Christmas train below the tree. It has a remote control just like Grandpa's trains.

Date night...

Friday night Jeremy and I went out to dinner and a movie. We figured that all that we have been through we deserved to have a night out. We went to Fuddrucker's. I love their fries! dipped in the honey mustard sauce. Yummy!!

Then we went to the movies. We saw...Twilight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I read the book about 2 weeks ago and loved it so much I read the second book, New Moon, shortly after. It was really great and I understand now what all the rage was about. I absolutely L-O-V-E Bella and Edward! I can't wait to read the next book, I'm chompin' at the bit. I'm going to get the book this week and I will probably read all 600+ pages by Sunday night. I'm just a little obsessed, that't all. Here are the two people my world has been all about the past three weeks:

Our book club just read this book and we all are going to read the rest of the books. Two of the "girls" said that book 4 was the best - just thought I'd let you know since you've just finished book 2! :-) I can't wait to read the rest of them - I love reading series where the author has the time to really build the story and the characters. But I was a bit worried that the movie wouldn't do the book justice... Did you like the book or the movie better?

I am so impressed with your turkey! And I love your tree too! That is quite a deal.

I didn't know you were reading Twilight! How exciting. I'm glad you liked the movie. I didn't want to see it at first, but now I think I do. I'm slowly finishing the 4th book, I just haven't wanted it to be over!
