Weekend Wrap-up

Our weekend started on Wednesday before Thanksgiving so I'll cover it all in this post. We spent Thanksgiving with our dear friends who are also Darin's godparents. Her mom, left in photo, is our expert level chef and always always has an amazing spread for the holidays. This year there were 2 turkeys, one regular in the oven turkey and the other a deep fried turkey by Darin's godfather. The deep fried turkey won hands down...amazing! My contribution were the greens, 2 different salads, and rolls. Another friend brought the ham and mashed potatoes. We stuffed ourselves silly and spent the day just hanging out!
We stayed home on Black Friday and put up our tree and some decorations. We spent the rest of the day shopping online and started a Christmas puzzle. Jori and I did the majority of the work and Darin put in the last piece. Sneaky kid stole a piece and waited until we were done and hunting for it before he stepped up with it!!!
We also received our first Christmas card of the season from Jori's XC sweet of him to send one out to the team. For the first time ever, we had to have a do-over on our annual ornament tradition. We bought Jori a cross country runner ornament, to the right of the card, and he hated disliked much so I bought him a new one to replace it. It's a White Mountain Laser original custom cut and designed for me/him. Check them out if you have any custom work you would like done. Dave is a whiz at designing items especially out of wood!
Last but not least, we spent some time at Holy Cross for the 10th annual Courts for Courtney 3-on-3 Basketball tournament. Both boys had their own teams and had a blast. What a great seeing the community coming out to support a great cause.
It was a nice relaxing 5 day weekend spent with family and friends. There was hockey and baseball thrown in the mix as well as a few trips to the stores but mostly we stayed home. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend as well!
