Thanksgiving 2014

BY TARA BURKE

We hope all our American readers had a lovely Thanksgiving! We certainly did and we wanted to extend a special thanks to all our readers for viewing our posts! It has been great getting to know such talented people for Feature Fridays and getting to share a little about ourselves with you all. Thank you for reading and here’s a quick look into how we spent our holiday.

Cailin and I arrived home right before a snow storm hit. We got a lot less snow than predicted so it ended up just making everything look pretty without all the work of shoveling. I personally love the snow and I don’t think we’ve had snow for Thanksgiving in awhile, so I took it in with some hot cocoa, fuzzy slippers and a cozy spot on the couch.

On Thanksgiving Day we got up to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Purina Dog Show. This is one of my favorite traditions. It is always fun to root for your favorite breed to win at the dog show and there’s something about Santa pulling onto 34th St. that just kick starts all the festive feelings of the holiday season.

After that it was time to eat! As per usual we stuffed our faces and couldn’t move for the next few hours. Luckily, we watched the movie, Draft Day, in between dinner and dessert so we could prep our stomachs for PIES! If you like football then you’ll probably enjoy this movie. As the title suggests, it is all about the insider details behind the NFL Draft Day.

To end our day we got together to watch the football game. We had a lot of fun spending time with our family and taking a moment out of our busy schedules to acknowledge and appreciate all the blessings we have. We truly have a lot to be grateful for and I love having a holiday to celebrate that.

“In everything give thanks…” 1 Thessalonians 5:18
