truer words were never spoken then those songs lyrics in my post title. This year was the first year since I moved to Maryland that we were able to go home for Thanksgiving so this year was a great Thanksgiving. We left Maryland around 10 a.m. , there wasn’t much traffic (surprisingly) and headed up to Delaware for our first stop of the day to see Devins mom and dad. They were hosting Thanksgiving later in the day for Dennis, Matt and Uncle Jack. Brendan had fun playing with his mom-mom and pop-pop. They had a bell and jingle bells for him to play with. And also had already set up their tree so he was in awe of that.
So after we left Delaware we headed up to Philly to my mom and dads for dinner with the family. As I said earlier this was our first time going home for Thanksgiving in 6 years so this year was extra special for me. I really miss being in Philly for the holiday. We got there just before everyone else, got settled in and the chaos/fun began. We do a Turkey quiz (my mom makes it up with impossible questions)….this year Devin won and Pop and I cam in 2nd place. After that we all gathered at the table for the feast. Just to put things into perspective the turkey needed for this dinner weighs more then Brendan. Brendan = 23.5 lbs, turkey =27 pounds haha! We of course had the tradition cranberry sauce, tons of mashed potatoes, rolls, stuffing, turkey shaped butter and some new sides too. For dessert we had an assortment of pies and my dad picked up a Stock’s cake, mmmmm! Brendan had so much fun playing with everyone all day.
On Friday while everyone was busy shopping for deals the boys, my dad and Devin, headed down to the shore house to check the mail and just get out of the house. My mom, Aunt Geri, Beth, K.C. and I went to see White Christmas the musical. But first we went to lunch at McCormick & Schmicks with all of th women in the family. We had a really nice lunch chit chatting and laughing. The musical was FANTASTIC …I would go see it again a million more times. So if you have the opportunity please go see it!
