Well, the problem
Here's a picture progression of the project ----
Hello! What a crazy picture of me. I was having fun passing out glow bracelets to the kids. I could have made a fortune selling them. I guess this is a first look here on the blog at my new glasses. I'm not yet sure if I like them or not.
I got to hold my Goddaughter Lucy during some of the parade. Three of our five Godchildren were with us. That was really special.
This parade is really cool because of all the lights on the floats. (You know how I love sparkle!) We saw lots of fun holiday characters as well as Ronald McDonald, Pepe the Penguin, and Big Boy.

|This was so cool! The airport firetruck "snowed" on us!|
|The grand finale.... Santa Claus!|
|The parade was so much more fun because we shared it with friends!|
It just wouldn't be Thanksgiving without watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. We went to Mass and then curled up on the couch to watch the parade, scan the newspaper ads, and eat some cinnamon rolls. We spent some time talking on the phone with our far-away relatives. ;)
|This is Jon's famous Chex Mix. He makes it for us every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas. So yummy!|
Jon was really eager to dig into that turkey! He had a colonoscopy on Wednesday, so he came to Thanksgiving dinner ready for some serious eating!

|Of course there was football to watch!|
|The best part of the day.... PIE!|
Before I took a big nap on Mom's couch, I took the boys out and ran them around a bit..... a little football, a little soccer, a lot of mud.
To top off a great day..... we had our first sleepover! The boys' cousin Carter came home with us and spent the night! He stayed with us the next day while his mom worked. Here are Jon, Ray, and Carter playing Monopoly on Friday morning. My mom's in the background. She came and picked me up for some Black Friday shopping.
