Thanksgiving Weekend

This weekend has been amazing to say the least. I spent Thanksgiving with my dad's side of the family and we had a great time. I wish we did more together because I miss everyone :[ It was at Aunt Sue's house and the food was amazing! It was so nice to catch up with everyone and see what they have been up to lately. There is just something about being with family that makes you feel so content. I love it! There was the usual political debate at the dinner table but it was entertaining to say the least. After dinner we all ran outside to see the space station. It was one of the coolest things I have ever seen. It was going by so fast and someone said that it circles the entire Earth in about an hour and a half! I can't even imagine what that would be like. Looking up into the star sky, I felt so small and insignificant, but at the same time I felt like a part of something much bigger. Being with family just puts everything into perspective.

This morning my mom woke me up at 6 to go shopping. We went to Shopko and South Towne Mall. Man, there were some awesome deals. At Bath and Body Works they had a buy 3 get 3 free sale... my mom and I discovered that when you buy the new Twilight Woods lotion you get the shower gel for free. So we ended up buying 3 lotions, and getting 3 more lotions plus 6 shower gels for free! Talk about a deal! I also got some new clothes at Forever 21, toys and treats for Brody, and Snuggies for my grandma's haha. Yes, I did jump aboard the Snuggie train... shame on me!

Today, after shopping with mom, we went down to Mount Pleasant to have Thanksgiving with my mom's side of the family. I love all of them so much :] We always have a ton of laughs together. Grandma always makes the BEST dinners ever, so lets just say I ate a lot haha. After dinner we always play Bingo. Grandpa calls out the letters and then whoever wins gets to pick a treat out of a basket. It was hilarious because the adults and kids were sitting at separate tables and the whole 1st half of the game the adults won every time. And then Collin moved over to the adult table so he would have a chance to win and right when he did the kids table started winning. We called him a jinx the rest of the night haha. But while we were playing I just started looking around and I could picture everyone still being little and throwing a fit when someone else won. It is so strange because now Taylor is married and Lexi is engaged. It was even stranger to think that that's going to be me someday. Time flies by so fast.
