Our dining room table looked great in Heather's dining room.
It was a wonderful day with too many goodies to eat and lots of football to watch while digesting all that food.
The next day, Black Friday, was spent not shopping, but getting set up for the next big event...Christmas!
Out came the boxes of decorations. Daddy Brian and the boys went to work assembling the tree.
Andrew got to put the star on the top of the tree. Owie supervised him to make sure he got it in the right place.
Now for some obligatory Christmas pictures of the boys.
Sadly, we won't be spending Christmas with the boys this year so later today we'll let them open one gift we've brought them. We're going to spend Christmas in Oregon with our granddaughters Taylor and Kierra. We haven't spent Christmas with them since their daddy, Ryan, was transferred from NYC to Astoria, Oregon almost four years ago.
Sunday, we leave South Carolina to head home to the Journey in our car (with cruise control and XM radio!) to finish Marti's last week of work. I have the last little details to take care of like sell said car and get all the utilities for our "old" house turned off and finish the last of the address changes. We have a follow up visit with Marti's eye doctor and her "surprise" retirement party Wednesday night. She already figured out her staff was up to something, it's hard to pull the wool over her eyes. I've been trying (mostly unsuccessfully) to do it to her for years.
A week from today (Saturday) we'll be heading North to NJ to start our trek to Oregon via Sioux Falls, SD. We can't believe our full timing plans have come to fruition. Somebody pinch us, please!
