Our first real adult Thanksgiving was a great success.
I enjoy decorating for holidays. However, I’ve never decorated for Thanksgiving, and I don’t draw turkeys very well. So I started out by making colorful paper chains. Then I cut the words “Happy Thanksgiving” out of construction paper. After I finished that and hung the letters up, I was very pleased with how it looked. So I continued to cut out letters. I decided to put the entire Thursday menu on the walls. It’s a little odd, but I was pleased.
We met Emma and Josh in the city Wednesday night – they both arrived about the same time on their buses. (Emma’s bus got pulled over by the police!) On the walk to the subway, we passed the set up of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. We were a few of the last people to get through before they closed Herald Square off. I got a cool picture of people painting the giant logo onto the street:
Since Thursday we’ve been hanging out and having a lot of fun. We’ve played Apples to Apples, Euchre, Pedro, and Wii Sports and Wario Ware. Friday morning Emma and I got up way too early and went to Target. We did really well, Emma got the cheap game she wanted for her classroom, shirts and some great DVDs. I got a new magnificent pillow, two shirts, and five great DVDs that were either $3.98 or $5.98. Later Friday we all went shopping in the city and spent most of our time at Strand. Then we went to Grimaldi’s for a pizza dinner.
We have an ungodly amount of leftovers.
