Let's Talk Turkey & Other Things

I hope you all had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving weekend.  Our two Thanksgivings were delicious and time well spent with family and friends.  We are so blessed.  Here are some pics of our Thanksgiving:

Knox said "Too much turkey = one sleepy puppy!"

On Black Friday, we woke up late, took Knox for a long walk, and ventured out to do a little shopping.  It really wasn't too bad and we got the things we really needed.  I just don't do the midnight or 4am thing.  I like my sleep WAY too much!

Saturday, we had lunch with friends and then headed out to run some of the errands we didn't finish Friday.

And Sunday, it started to look a lot like Christmas around the Smithwick house...

just a little taste of the dachshund Christmas decorations
and I made these letters to hang in our breakfast room.

And while we were decorating, another Pinterest find, Angel Chicken, was cooking in the crock pot.  Yum!

So, how did you spend the weekend?
