Happy Thanksgiving

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving Day. We had a great day even though it went nothing like we had planned. Andrew was supposed to get home from work Wednesday morning and we were going to drive down to Caliente to spend a couple of days with my family.  On Monday night, we packed up our clothes, food that didn't need to be in the fridge and other misc. stuff. 

On Tuesday morning, it snowed here some and it snowed a lot where Andrew was headed.  He got delayed and the roads weren't good, so Tuesday night we decided we better not go.  I woke up on morning and thought, well if Andrew gets home early afternoon, maybe we can drive half-way and then the rest of the way on Thursday morning.  I called Andrew around 10:00 and he told me that the breaks on his trailer froze overnight and he couldn't move his truck.  So, with that and the bad roads, he didn't get home until around 6:30 that night. 

When we realized we were going to be able to go, we decided that we would go out to eat for lunch and then have the dips that I was planning on making for dinner.  Here are the highlights.  A few weeks ago, we made these turkey shirts for the boys.  Those on their handprints on their shirts.

 
We we are snuggling (or nugs and Deker says it) watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Here we are snuggling again after the boys got up from their nap.
The boys munching on Spinach Dip and Cheese ball while watching Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.
We had a fun day, but missed my family terrible.  Now I need to face the task of unpacking all our stuff.

Happy Thanksgiving, Picanco family! I'm sorry you weren't able to go visit your family. It's always a disappointment when something you are really looking forward to doesn't work out. It sounds like you did have a good day, though. Sometimes staying home for the holidays is fun, too!

Wish we had known your plans fell through, we would have invited you to come with us to Brent's mom's house. She had more than enough food and we would have LOVED to have had you all!
