That is what my adorable niece riley kept shouting during this thanksgiving break.
Last wednesday after Jacob finished up his class we flew home to my parents in Washington. IT was a much needed break. My whole family was there and I was surprised how much we packed into the long weekend. We had a wonderful thanksgiving feast folloed by all of us putting up Christmas decorations. SInce all of us kids are heading to our spouses' parents for Christmas my mom and dad decided we'd celebrate it early with them. After all the decorations were up we watched all family videos and had a good laugh at my mullet, steven and his friends willing jumping into a wall, and michael having a sweet bowling pose at such a young age.
Early christmas was fantastic and it really did seem like Christmas. WE had to keep reminding ourselves that no one else was celebrating it at this time.
Other things we did were take family pictures and watch movies. We saw Australia, which was good but not as good as I was hoping (Far and Away was much better if you ask me). I also saw Twilight. I say I because Jacob opted to stay home and do homework for this outing. I was pleasantly surprised by the movie. I thought I'd go crazy making fun of it and the terrible acting. While there were really corny parts i was impressed. Edward did a way better job then I expected him to. The person who played bella sucked in my opinion. I didn't like her acting, but then I again I thought they really should have picked Alexis Bledel (rory, from Gilmore Girls).
Overall Thanksgiving break was a success!
