Thanksgiving Weekend!

Sadly today is the last day of Thanksgiving weekend. But we made the most of it, I think. Enjoying some time at home, just the two of us. We've been on the go so much, it's nice to once in a while relax! Neither of us are that good at doing this - I always feel guilty doing nothing! :)

On Thanksgiving, we cooked our own turkey with all the trimmings.

We "lit" the DVD Yule Log. :) Someday I really want a house with a real fireplace! But this will do for now!

Jacob's the turkey master. He makes it look effortless! But I make a mean mashed potatoes!


Thanksgiving!


And Molly is our official taster.

The next day we went out to go find our Christmas tree!

And because we're without a car, we had to drag it back nearly a mile! Just like the olden days except down the streets of Jersey City instead of through the woods!

It may look like Jacob's carrying it by himself, but I will let you know, I helped a lot!!

We unwrapped it and let it settle for about a day...

And then added decorations and LED Christmas lights!!

Here it is with the lights off. The LED lights photograph kind of strangely though...

And now we're all set for Christmas!!! :)

I love the fragrance of a fresh Christmas tree. Someday maybe they'll make computers that transmit smells :) .
