Weekend Shenanigans

Okay, so my weekend activities might not technically count as "shenanigans" but I wanted to link up with Sami today, mmmmkay?

My little bro and sis came over on Saturday night, and after an exciting trip to IKEA we settled in for an epic showing of one of our childhood favorites: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turles II: The Secret of the Ooze. If you are unaware of my obsession with TMNT, you must be new here.

On Sunday we grabbed breakfast at Mabel's and then helped my brother pack up his truck with the last of our old condo furniture. (Tear!) But I'm glad it will all be going to a good home.

Then later that afternoon Stew and I headed over to Tony and Nikki's for something I've really been looking forward to: Friendsgiving!

Multiple opportunities to celebrate Thanksgiving are the best, and last night was an absolute freaking blast. Our friends are quite the gourmet cooks, and it was good eatin' plus good friends and lots of fun. There was even some Christmas cookie decorating at the end! PS I am the least artistic person ever. 

It was one of those nights where I just wanted to enjoy the evening, rather than photograph every single detail, so unfortunately you will have to make do with these few snapshots.

 The evening was such a great preview to all the great Thanksgiving fun to come later this week! Tony and Nikki's family tradition is to frost sugar cookies after dinner. At the Alway's, we play Bunco. In my family, we do puzzles and draw names for Christmas.

What are some traditions in your family?
