Thanksgiving Day Fun

Another Thanksgiving has come and gone...where does the time go? This is James' second Turkey Day, and this time around, he got to eat his fair share of turkey and fixins. This year, we had the added fun of having my Aunt Mari here from Minnesota. We made way too much food and tried a lot of new recipes. Rach made Cornmeal Poundcake...sounds weird but its so good. We had all the usual stuff, too, and then some. Basically, we had a good ol' Cheyney eat-fest all day long. Thanks to Dad's new digital scale, we could all weigh ourselves before and after to see how much we ate. Jeff topped it off at 2.8 pounds; thats a lot of turkey!
On Friday, us girls hauled ourselves out early for some Black Friday shopping; the general consensus is NOT AGAIN. Now that malls are opening insanely early, like 3am, by the time we went out at 6am it was chaos! Saturday we took a fun trip to the flea market and found lots of treasures to bring home. It all went too quickly and before we knew it, it was time for Aunt Mari to go home, and for all of us to return to normal. Its time now to look foward to Christmas...
