Friday evening when I got off of work, I had to run my paperwork down to the office. I got home around seven and then had to hurry and get ready to head over to Nelsonville.
I spent the night there. And the next morning, I went and picked up my brother and went shopping. He helped me with shopping because I had to get home and get things put away. I needed to have all of this done because Brett and I were taking my son, his girlfriend, and their babies, and our grandsons to see the Christmas lights in. Chillicothe. Brett wanted to leave at five, so I had to hurry.
Well, together Lonnie and I got the shopping done, made it home, and had everything put away with one hour to spare.
Dan decided that he and Brittany would follow us, with Abby and Kinsley; which worked out because we had Jon and Huntlee. So none of us ended up having to sit in the very back or be scrunched together.
We made it to the park; Yoctangee Park, and took our time, enjoying the lights. Everyone had a really good time.
When we made it home, I had to shampoo the carpet in the living room, and sweep and mop the kitchen. I had prep to do, since we were having our Thanksgiving on Sunday, the following day.
Once I finished the floors, I baked my pies, did the laundry, and prepped what I could in advance. I didn’t get to bed until after three in the morning.
And I was up at seven to put the Turkey in the oven and prep the rest of the dinner, part of which had to be put into the oven once the Turkey came out.
Dinner went off without a hitch, everyone liked it. After dinner Abby and I put the trees up and decorations out; she couldn’t wait. She’s at that age to be just so much fun.
We got everything up; lights, trees, and decorations. Little Abby kept telling me how nice it was, “This is so nice! It’s so nice here! It’s nice here and at Mama Karen’s, too.”
When we finished and we’re just relaxing my brother, the one that lives in Athens, came in with some beer and I had a few with him and Davey.
I’ll add more pictures as time goes on. I just wanted to add a few to this post.
