We didn't have travel plans for Thanksgiving this year. But as the day approached, I wanted it to feel like more than the five of us just eating a regular old dinner at our regular old house. So at the last minute we decided to mix it up for an easy trip up the road.
It was the perfect kind of gloominess, like the sky is giving you permission do nothing but eat and sleep and be lazy.
Which was great since everything was closed except for the movies and restaurants, anyway.
A visit to the TX State History museum, while we waited for The Hunger Games (in the IMAX theater attached). They had lots of educational movies, but the kids said they didn't want to watch a "learning movie". (we are stellar parents)
Then we continued to eat all the rest of the food in Texas.
And a few shots from this weekend. We finally got the decorations finished. Not pictured a 20 minute argument over a 6 foot string of garland (Who It Belonged To!!!), with A Very Merry Christmas playing in the background. Because of course it was.
I hope you are all surviving the madness this year.
Happy Sunday. -xo
