Date 65 - Happy Turkey!

Date: Thursday, November 22nd - Saturday, November, 24thType: Family, Holidays
Cost: $
Planned By: Both

Our Second Thanksgiving together. We decided to bring Obi to Conneaut for the weekend to meet everyone!
At the beginning of Thanksgiving we had a brunch with Adam's mom. I made sausage gravy over biscuits. They were just as good as always :) We watched some of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and followed Obi around the house as he explored for a couple hours.

Next, we packed Obi back up and left for my mom's house for the rest of Thanksgiving Day. Adam, Michelle, Jim, Amanda, Zak and I all started off the afternoon with a two mile Turkey Trot. We got t-shirts and prizes for the second annual event. The first mile we all walked together. The second mile was a race to the finish line. Michelle and Jim cheated on the second mile and drove after the rest of us jogged away. Adam and I ultimately won since we didn't cheat and came in first. So we got the turkey trot mug and the others got a turkey trot pen. It was all pretty silly, but we had a good time. :)
Next, we had dinner at my grandma's. We.. I mean I made these cute little turkey name holders for each person's place setting. They are made with two oreos, a reese cup, a whopper, candy corn and frosting. They were much easier to make then I was expecting them to be. Everything tasted great. We then spent more time with my family for the rest of the night.
On Friday we went shopping in Erie like we do every year. Adam and I mostly bought stuff for ourselves but we found a few things for other people. When we got sick of shopping we went to our annual breakfast at Old Country Buffet. It was the meal I had been waiting for all week, and it was delicious! Friday night we stayed with Adam's parents. We went to the American Legion and had fun talking to their friends and we watched the Conneaut Christmas Parade. It was cold and wet.

Saturday we went to the Neubauer Family Thanksgiving dinner. It was really nice seeing everyone and we got to eat even more delicious food! We left a little early to get back to Cleveland in time for the Public Square tree lighting. We got home just in time to run over to Public Square right as we walked in they were counting down. The lights are beautiful and really made it feel like the holiday season! Next, we decided to go lose $20 at the casino, but that's OK because we left the casino just in time to see the fireworks display over all the Christmas lights in Public Square.
We then went home and relaxed for the rest of the weekend. It was a very nice Thanksgiving weekend. :)
