Thanksgiving 2014 will definitely go down in the Adams family book as a very non-traditional Thanksgiving. All I can say is... it had better snow for Christmas or else I am going to be somewhat disappointed after all of the snow we were spoiled with over Thanksgiving:)
We left Knoxville, TN with clear blue skies and seasonably warm temperatures and flew into a winter tornadicane when we touched down in the Twin Cities for our connecting flight. The snow was beautiful to watch from the terminal, but when you have been sitting on a plane for an hour while you are deiced, it can be a bit overwhelming with a toddler hiking up your head and throwing cheez-its between the seats. But hey, it was worth it! And Cam was a flying pro this time around! I think he is already learning the ropes:)
We were SO happy to see daddy's face when we walked through those airport doors. I wish I could just glue us all three together in the Cam sandwich position and never move again. We went with our crew to only the busiest Walmart in the country to grab last minute groceries and a tree to kick off the celebration. We survived and even made it in time to sip coffee and take in the 45, 632th viewing of A Charlie Brown Thanskgiving.
When we woke up Thanksgiving morning, we set up camp in the floor, turned on the parade, while the Mr. cooked the biggest spread of biscuits and gravy, pancakes, sausage, bacon, and eggs ever. I'm a lucky lady...he is pretty much the best breakfast cook in the whole entire world. It was perfect, as if I can ever be thankful enough!
The man of the hour? Snoop. And the second runner up may just go to Thomas the Train (or as Cam knows him, "Choo-choo.") Santa didn't stand a chance. For the adults, seeing WCU as the lead band was probably the highlight--but idk, I have to agree with Cam. Snoopy was pretty cool.
We had a yummy lasagna dish and Cam became obsessed with singing Let It Go, showing off pictures of Ony, and rummaging through all of my scarves. Does lasagna do that to people?
On Black Friday, we braved the subzero temps and went to one of Cade's friends house for some turkey and dressing. After, we went to check out a local park that had just kicked off an annal light celebration in the park. It was so cold. We ran out in enough time for Cam to shout WOW, break the snot cicles from our noses, and snap a pic. After all that fun we decided to call it a day and head back to the apartment to watch it snow. I didn't know how to play Rook, which was the activity of choice for our crowd, so I got my Santa on and snagged some stocking stuffers from one of my favorite etsy shops, greythread (aka riley clay designs)! No better way to represent... Check them out to see what I mean;)
A couple of flight delays later and here we are back to another daddy countdown, into the swing of everyday life. I don't deserve these memories, these people, or anything else I ever share with you...but I have to give praise every chance I get to the creator and provider of it all, my Savior Jesus Christ. Of Him, To Him, Through Him are ALL things. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
