i’m combining these two events into one post, because i am sooooo sooooo far behind in my blogging.
we celebrated thanksgiving with derek’s uncle’s family. in the south, folks like to eat thanksgiving “dinner” at noon or earlier. i don’t get it and i never will. but, noon it was. since we were all wearing nice-ish (for us) clothes, a family photo was in order.
we had a very laid back rest of the day. most of us. derek decided to do some “black friday” shopping at target to get us new phones, a new ipad and a new tv for our camper. so he had a harrowing rest of the day. 🙂 but, that’s our thanksgiving…
lidbom swedish christmas. we usually celebrate swedish christmas a little early, but not usually THIS early. but, since we would be heading back out, we crammed it in on our last day (yesterday).
every year, derek’s parents’ friend rusty comes to swedish christmas. and every year, she gets both of our families a zoo membership and adopts an animal in their names. this year, the animal was a red wolf, so she gave them all a stuffed red wolf. she’s awesome.
we spent the rest of the evening trying to fit all of our new stuff into our camper.
it was a fantastic way to cap off our five week stop in winston-salem.
