    We stayed home and had our feast here. The one curse to having a farm is can't really go anywhere as far as traveling long distance. But that's okay. :wink:
    Anyway I was almost sick from eating to much pumpkin pie, I knew I should have stopped on that third piece... LOL But what did I do first thing this morning, ate so more pie! I couldn't resist the temptation, and now I am thinking about going for another slice before heading off to bed. :help:

    I stayed home with my husband. We pretty much just layed around for most of the day...watched a dog show on TV...he started packing for his trip...didn't get much accomplished, but it was nice to relax.

    It was ok we went to my Mother's side of the family's Thanksgiving first and it was a little boring. Then we went to my dads side which is a lot more exciting where the kids decided they wanted in with goats ans let them all out :angry: .

    We had a great Thanksgiving, drove about 8-1/2 hours on Wednesday to Dickinson TX, for a family get together and just got back home today. It was so great though seeing everybody, eating, playing cards, and going to the beach. :)

    Hey Bethany, we drove 9 hours to go to Texas also to spend it with my son. He has three of his friends come eat dinner with us. It was fun for what I remember. (DRUGS).
    I have to say in the 25 years I have been Married I have NEVER cooked a Holiday meal. My DH always does it. I guess it was a good thing this year or we would not of eaten anything

So I felt really good. :)

    It is good I really like it. I was originally a brunette and dyed it blond over the summer but I anted it darker. It's not really black it's a really dark brown but it's almost black.
