Hello, friends. I took a little blogging break over the last week and a half–not intentionally and not for any real reason. I simply didn’t feel like blogging. Anybody else ever have a period like that? I am back now, and here’s what we’ve been up to over the last couple of weeks:
Andrew and I spent the weekend before Thanksgiving with his mom’s side of the family in Northern Virginia. Andrew was in Heaven because, due to lots of food allergies in the family, everything on the table was gluten-free dairy-free (or had a GF DF equivalent), so he could eat anything and everything!
We made a Pin-spired vegetable turkey with the cousins:
And went for a tractor/wagon ride between dinner and dessert:
And because blogging was so far out of my mind, those are the only photos I took. It was so great to visit with family, eat good food, and relax!
We spent Thanksgiving day with my family at my mom’s house and, as is customary on Thanksgiving, ate too much. 🙂 I love my family, and it’s always so good to spend time with them and laugh–usually at something one of the nieces said.
For example, while we were all sitting around the table, sweet little Lauren (4) looked at me, then Andrew, and said, “Umm, you guys were supposed to get a baby when you got married.” 😀 I couldn’t tell if her tone was suggesting that we were cheated or that she was cheated (out of a cousin), but it was very funny. Thanks, kiddo. 😉
Once again, I took very few photos Here’s the sweet potato casserole that we made and a plate of the leftovers I had for lunch Friday:
Yum 🙂 My absolute favorite Thanksgiving food is my mom’s broccoli casserole. So cheesy. So delicious.
Christmas Tree Farm
Yesterday Andrew and I ate brunch and went Christmas tree shopping with our good friends Amanda and Diron.
As it turns out, we were way too picky, and neither couple found a suitable tree, but we had an awesome time walking around, taking a hay ride, and drinking hot cider. 😀
It’s going to be tough to go back to work today after the long, relaxing weekend! Have a great Monday!
Question for WordPress users: A couple of weeks ago my computer decided to stop letting me use Google Chrome to write blog posts (in the visual mode), and I have since been confined to using Internet Explorer (which randomly deletes paragraphs, resizes photos, reformats the post, etc. It’s pretty awesome.) Has this happend to anyone else with Chrome? Is there any way I can fix it??
