After finding out the gender of our new baby boy, we spent the rest of the morning watching the parade on tv, drinking cider and eating cinnamon rolls, yum.
We spent the afternoon at the home of my brother in law’s parents. Did you catch that? As in, Brandon’s sister’s husband’s parents. They are close family friends and they share most holidays together. The food was so so good. I never doubted that it would be. I think my favorite thing about big holiday meals is all the yummy side dishes. I never spend enough time on side dishes for regular dinners at home and would be perfectly happy eating only sides at pot lucks and family get togethers.
Friday morning we hopped in the car and began our five hour journey to Washington Dc to visit our friend Heidi and see If/Then the new musical with Idina Menzel. All planned by Brandon. Love him.
We spent most of the weekend just hanging out with Heidi at her place watching Christmas movies and eating Thanksgiving leftovers and hitting a few local eateries as well. We spent some time at the botanical gardens but our Saturday nap skipper slept through the entire thing.
Saturday night Heidi hung out with Judah while Brandon and I went to see Idina Menzel in If/Then.
It was a really fun long weekend getaway, but after fighting the holiday traffic on Sunday we were ready to be home for more Thanksgiving leftovers and getting ready for Christmas!
