Two dinners and a day of shopping

Just two Thanksgiving dinners for us this year!

After our annual Turkey Trot, our first stop was Friendsview for early dinner with Brad's family. My first plate - YUMMO!!
Some of the gang:
Then it was home to for a brief rest and also to put the finishing touches on our offerings for Dinner No. 2. I just took a little this time around:
Pie options:
Brad says there's always room for pie:
My side of the family, gathered at Eryn's house:
Both celebrations were very yummy and very fun!

Then after some cleanup at Eryn's, it was off to plot our Black Friday adventure.

We dug through the ads and made lists and a route for early Friday. After a few hours of shuteye, it was time to shop!

My alarm went off at 3:30 a.m. for a quick shower and oatmeal before picking up Dad at 4:30 a.m. Waiting for Fred Meyer to open at 5 a.m.:
It was a fruitful day of shopping and lots of fun to spend the day like this!
Have you seen these ride-on things at Washington Square?!? You rent the animal-shaped scooters and zoom around the mall. A bunch of teenagers were on them - and it was hilarious!
After our all-day shopping extravaganza, it was time for family and friends to gather for our annual holiday kick-off Christmas Vacation viewing:
It's not going in our yard, Rusty ;)
