Sunday I flew into Huntington and was immediately reunited with my mom and Josh. It felt so good to be back with both of them. I can't even describe it. If you've ever been away from your loved ones for a long time then you know exactly what I'm talking about.
He even gave me this pretty red rose! It bloomed the entire time I was there.My flight didn't get in town until really late so Sunday was basically a travel day. Monday morning, I hit the ground running though. Josh and I had been wanting to see Breaking Dawn Part 2 so we went on a matinee date!
The theater that we always go to has the best warm nuts during the holidays. I need to try to figure out how to get them year round! We could seriously eat them all the time! They are some type of pecan that's been glazed with sugar and cinnamon.
After the movie, we headed to the first of two Thanksgiving dinners that we would be eating. It was filled with my favorites: hashbrown casserole, home made rolls, turkey skin, corn on the cob and baby red potatoes. My mom did a great job on the turkey!
On Tuesday, we took Josh's son to see Santa. He loves Christmas trees and he loved the one that they had in Santa's village area.
You should have heard all the stuff he wants for Christmas! We have got to get cracking on finding some of it! We don't want Santa to disappoint! That's for sure! Once we were done seeing Santa we headed out to the park since it was such a nice day. The day went by so fast.
The next day my mom and I headed out to get our live Christmas tree. Usually we get it the day after Thanksgiving but since I was having to leave we got it the day before. We usually get it at a local place called Stewarts but they weren't getting their trees in time for us to buy it there this year. So after asking friends and getting some suggestions we actually found live ones at Home Depot! I had no idea they had fresh, live Christmas trees. We were able to get it up and decorated all in one day. Then it was time to eat another Thanksgiving dinner!
My time back in West Virginia felt like it went so fast. I was so thankful to be able to go home and see my entire family for the holiday. I got to see everyone, eat some good food and enjoy the time with them all. I hope everyone else had a great Thanksgiving 2012! Enjoy the season friends!
