Thanksgiving 2015

Hello December!
It was a busy november full of ups and downs!
A couple weeks before thanksgiving we had a huge windstorm that ended up knocking out our power for 4 days! 
That's the longest i've ever experienced a power outage.
Thankfully we had a generator.
Then the next week  (a week before thanksgiving) Hailey got sick with a cough, she's had coughs before but it only got worse and eventually turned into the croup (which she has also had before)
It got so bad one night she had trouble breathing and let me tell you as a Mom there is nothing worse that watching your child struggle to breath and not be able to do anything about it!
We ended up taking her to the ER where she got medicine and a breathing treatment.
Later that week she was a lot better just in time for......
THANKSGIVING!
Thanksgiving was a beautiful day!
 blue sky and sunny.
I just wish it hadn't been so cold!

Started the day by watching the Macy's thanksgiving day parade, a yearly tradition.
While i watched i was also prepping food.
Thanksgiving is also my favorite day to get the newspaper ( i know that's lame) because it's STUFFED full of black Friday adds.
Shawn was in charge of the turkey that had been sitting in the fridge for 3 days and on thanksgiving was still hard as a rock!
So he spent a while giving it a hot bath in the sink...lol
All in all it turned out amazing and was so yummy!
Because of the turkey still being frozen we didn't end up eating until 2:30 a little later than i wanted to eat but by that time we all really ready to eat!

Turkey,homemade mashed potatoes,i tried a fluffy fruit salad,kale salad rolls,cranberry sauce,pickles and of course deviled eggs!
I also made a peppermint pie as well.
It was all SO good!

After eating we watched movies, and later that evening Shawn took Hailey with him to brave walmart to get some black Friday deals, he ended up getting some good stuff!
Shawn also went out the next morning early to get more black Friday stuff that he had is eye on, he was really into all that!
I however wasn't looking for anything in particular and i feel as the years go on, I'm not a fan of getting up early to fight the crowds for a good deal.
Call me Lazy....haha
Overall it was a great thanksgiving
low key
relaxed
just the way i like it!
 It's always been one of my Favorite holidays!

(This is also the first year that the day right after thanksgiving we put up lights on the house and are Christmas Tree!)
