Yes, I know, it has been almost a month since Thanksgiving, but I thought as long as I post about Thanksgiving before Christmas, then it will be ok! :)
I drove to my parents' Tuesday night via big D.  I needed to do a little Christmas shopping at my favorite mall in the world -- Northpark!  After stops at Nordstrom and Anthropologie, my friend L and I at dinner at La Duni -- so yummy!!  We even splurged and got dessert!  We had so much to catch up on that I think we were there for almost 2 hours!!!  With my leisurely pace, Edwin and Megan almost beat me to our parents' house -- and they were coming from Nebraska!! :) 
Here I am with my precious sister-in-law and brother, Megan and Edwin, before Thanksgiving lunch.  We had such a fun time!  Wednesday, we went to lunch at a fun sandwich place on the square and looked around a great home decor shop.  We spent a lot of time relaxing, which was so nice.  I also did a little reading for class...
Thursday, we got ready for a wonderful Thanksgiving meal prepared by my mom and grandmother.
After watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, of course!
Here is the table all decorated.  So beautiful!  Muvie did the flowers. :)

Wow, this picture almost makes me want to cry...I have so much to be thankful for!!
I love them all so much!!!
And what a great view I had for Thanksgiving!! :)

That night, we went to my dad's cousin and his wife's house for dinner.
She had two kinds of delicious soups and yummy sandwiches and of course, fabulous desserts!!  It was so much fun to get to visit with everyone!
Since this blog is like my scrapbook, here are some fun family pics I was able to take!
It was such a blessing to see you all!!  What a Thanksgiving treat! :)

Oh, and I can't forget the most amazing thing we have recently found out about to be thankful for is Edwin and Megan are expecting!!  Little B is expected to make his or her debut in late May/early June!! 
I am so thrilled and overjoyed to be an aunt!! :)
