Thanksgiving...a week later


Has it really been a week since Thanksgiving? I suppose it has, and it seems like it was just yesterday.

This year I put my best attempt forward at making the entire Thanksgiving dinner by myself, minus the rolls that my mom so thoughtfully made and carried on the plane with her. Thanks, mom! But, aside from the rolls, I did the whole shebang. I was about to comment about how pathetic I am for never having cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner on my own, but then it dawned on me, that NOPE, that's not pathetic at all, that just means I've always had it with other people. But somehow, this year we were about to have a solo Thanksgiving, we're so cool! So, to avoid that lameness, I bribed my parents with my companion pass if they'd come out and visit us. My companion pass, a yummy Thanksgiving dinner, and a cute grandson to play with all they wanted..

My bribe worked.

With Thanksgiving out of the way, we ventured out to explore a few things in the city that we've yet to see, and yes, if you're wondering, my parents came with a list. They didn't want to get bored! :)

Martin Nature Reserve Park...

The Centennial Land Run Monument...

 Not part of the planned weekend, this little one getting his first tooth...

 We even ventured into the Stockyards for some tasty food at Cattleman's...

And, we even made time to go through the OKC Bombing Museum, which was really incredible, but oh so sad. Why are there so many lame people in this world?

Thanks mom and dad for coming to visit, you're welcome here anytime you'd like, especially when you demand your grandson from me in the morning so I can sleep in. Yes, come back anytime you'd like.

We love you! Xoxo

Your Thanksgiving table looked so pretty : ). Your parents look like they're in seventh heaven being around Preston ; ). I'm glad you had such a nice visit with them. You are quite the woman for actually wanting to cook the meal on your own. I'm glad you had such a great holiday!
