I'll go in order of what I said in the title. First of all, we're thankful for Thanksgiving! It was a pretty low key sort of day, well, except for the cooking. There was a lot of cooking going on. Brent cooked the turkey breast in the crock pot. It turned out GREAT! I think this might be the way to do it from now on.
Since Brent does the cooking, I'm in charge of the decorating - ie girly things he doesn't understand. So, I pulled out the china and set the table. I think it turned out rather nice.
Then Ryan, Marcela and the girls came down to share our meal. After dinner, I broke out the camera for a minute.

As you know, I love to go Black Friday shopping. I normally hate shopping so I don't know what that's all about but I do love it. And this year Brent got to go with me. We did NOT go out on Thanksgiving, however. We decided there wasn't anything we really needed and I didn't want to make people work. So most of the stores were pretty quiet since everyone else had already been there. Well, except for Fred Meyer who is cool and still opens on Black Friday.
We got some good deals and had a pretty good time.
And see, we're even still smiling at the end...
Either way, it was still fun to do. I'm glad Marcela invited me. I think we'll have a mini craft show here after the first of the year. You should come, if you can.
And now I'm thankful that this post is done so I can stop thinking about it and get on with my Christmas gifts!
