Thanksgiving and Black Friday

Thanksgiving was awesome.  One of the best ever.  
My part of the menu this year:
Appetizers:
Potato Nests
Cranberry Puffs


Sides:
Mashed Potatoes
Green Bean Casserole
Buttercup Squash


Desserts:
Pumpkin Cream Pie-recipe from the Pioneer Woman.  Best Pie Ever.
Cranberry Apple Pie-recipe from Bake @ 350.  Loved it.


It was all soo delicious.  My very favorite part was when we took turns telling one another why we're thankful for each other.  I got emotional several times thinking about how lucky I am to be a part of such a wonderful family.  We played a fun funny game and giggled a lot.  I love playing games.  Has anyone played Bezzerwizzer?  I keep seeing it and am intrigued.

Jen and Emily picked me up at 3:45 (!) for Black Friday shopping.  I really wanted to go and experience.  We went to Target, getting there right as it opened and were able to find some great deals.  The electronics section was mobbed, as you can see.  After that, Meijer, which was boring by comparison.  We were done by 6:00 and came home to sleep.  Lucky me, Lucy slept in until 9:00.  


I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving!
