Thursday we kicked off the holiday at home with the parade and I attempted to create a cute themed breakfast... but it turned out to be a big #Pinterestfail!
Luckily they tasted delicious, and Little M still got a kick out of them!
This was the first year that Little M really understood that it was a holiday and he was loving the Macy's parade on tv - he kept singing and dancing to all of the performances. It doesn't get any better than experiencing a holiday through your child's eyes and has me so excited for Christmas this year!
In awe of the "Tommy Choo Choo" balloon
After the parade, we watched the dog show as we got ready for the day - watching the dog show is one of my Thanksgiving day traditions, and I always make sure to pay attention when Fred's breed, the Havanese, is up (sadly he didn't even place this year!).
Then we headed over to my parents house for dinner
While we waited for dinner to be ready, we enjoyed lots of wine and shameless snaps!
Obviously we kept our phones away during dinner, so there are no food photos to be had, but trust me that it was completely delicious and by the end of the night I practically had to be rolled home!
I'm usually not one to hit up the stores for Black Friday, but I had my eye on one particular item from Michaels, so I was up and out by 7:30 to snag me some crafting deals!
I was able to get the item I was coveting - the Heidi Swapp Minc Machine, along with many other fabulous crafting items. Finally, I had to cut myself off once my cart was filled to the brim!
Later in the day, we headed out to the get our Christmas tree, and after doing a couple laps, we definitely found our best tree to date!
The tree farm also had some goats that Little M made friends with
We headed home and after enjoying some of the delicious Thanksgiving leftovers my mom sent us home with, we got to work decorating the tree!
Little M was very excited to put the ornaments on the tree.. and then remove them from the tree!
But I'm really happy with how the tree turned out, and I can't get enough of how great my whole house smells from it!
On Saturday we headed to Pennsylvania for the night to visit one of GG's high school friends. He and his wife recently bought a house, and had a bunch of us out to check it out and catch up.

We had such a great night catching up with everyone that of course I was awful at taking pictures, though I was really proud of myself for staying up so late, so I did snap the below before heading to bed for the night!
Sunday was spent
recovering relaxing, and we also finished up the holiday decorating downstairs.
All-in-all it was a fantastic holiday weekend, and now let's bring on Christmastime!
How was everyone else's Thanksgiving weekend? Anyone brave the Black Friday sales and get some good deals?
