We had a great time in Austin for Thanksgiving!
We started our break by Matt coming up to my classroom right after school got out Tuesday to help me get the Christmas decorations done. Then we headed home to finish packing before heading to dinner & to see the new Hunger Games movie.
Wednesday I got up and enjoyed a quiet morning with pumpkin muffins and coffee in hand while I took down the fall decorations. As much as I love my Chriatmas decor it made me sad to take down the fall things. I love the memories all my decorations hold from shopping with my mom for my "one day grown up house" to the acorns from our yard during our first fall & of course ALL. THE. PUMPKINS. from Canton shopping with Heather. Then I headed to get a quick workout in before leaving for Austin.
On our way in to town we stopped by Grandma Heidi's house to spend some time with her since she wasn't able to make it down for Thanksgiving. It was nice to spend some time with her watching the dogs play in the backyard, spotting wildlife, and a full dinner out.
Thanksgiving day began with Matt's mom and I turkey trotting in their neighborhood's race. It was a beauty day and a fun way to start the day!
While his mom prepared lunch the guys enjoyed playing cards & watching football.
The rest o the day was filled with eating, football watching, napping, reading & late night card playing.
Friday Matt and I headed out to join in with a little of the Black Friday fun (but missed all the crazy since we didn't leave until aroun 10:30). Our main motivation were the holiday drinks at Starbucks & seeing what deals we could find.
Then it was time for brunch & more card playing before we headed to Zilker park for a little family walk. It was another beautiful day!
Saturday we just hung out watching football & reading before it was time to cheer on our Baylor Bears!! After a close game that caused a little stress we pulled out a win and it was time to hit the road home. It was a great weekend with family, ready to welcome the Christmas season!
