Thanksgiving/Black Friday

We had our Thanksgiving at a local yacht club that my uncle and his wife belong to.  It was the first time having a holiday meal there (my uncle's 50th birthday party was there a few years ago and their wedding).  We won't be going back there.  Trust me when I say that the only good part was getting to take pictures outside on the water.  We actually got our Christmas card picture taken by my aunt!

Here it is:

This was the best one we got even though my hair is in my face, Annabel has a blank stare going on and Annika looks like she's in pain!

We did get a few other pictures too.

Me and Annabel inside the yacht club.

Us outside by the boats.

And another group shot.  I didn't like this one as much as the first because Annika looks a little funny and Annabel isn't looking at the camera at all!

Black Friday Josh woke up early to go to Home Depot at 5am to buy a few things we'll need for the house when we move in.  It was nice to get to sleep in and send him off with a list of things to buy!

We also got a Christmas tree.  We decided to go with a fake tree so it will last us a while.  It's 7.5 feet tall and is pre-lit with lights that change from white to multi-color.  

Annika had a ball decorating the tree with me!  I had to keep Annabel in her highchair while we decorated so she wouldn't get into everything and she ended up taking a nap!

The girls and I posed in front of the tree.

And daddy came in to help Annika put some decorations a bit higher (the majority of the decorations were on the bottom of the tree, we had to adjust a lot when Annika went to bed that night).

Annika also got this gingerbread man foam kit from my aunt at Thanksgiving.  She actually did a good job putting him together except that she decided he was a sad gingerbread man.  And (I swear I cannot believe no one on Facebook pointed this out or realized this) she added an extra pink circle down by the crotch area, so I'm assuming this may just be a ginger-woman.

  1. I love the gingerbread man/woman. :-) Maybe he's sad because someone is going to eat him? Sorry your yacht club Thanksgiving was stinky. The pictures are great though, I love the second one actually, and I don't think the girls' faces are that bad. I agree they are a little funny, but I still like the second one. Maybe you could find a card where you could put a couple pictures and that one could be smaller so people wouldn't notice details as much?
