Our house is SO quiet now. My brothers were here for a week and my parents had been here since Wednesday but they all left this morning and Mike and I are relaxing and trying to get over the sniffles that we have before we go back to work tomorrow.
We had a wonderful week with our family here. Between the food and the Wii my parents brought with them, family pictures, seeing friends, and just enjoying each other's company - we had a blast.
Here are pictures of the highlights! (I can't get any of the pictures to rotate for some reason - sorry!)
The new candle holder my parents brought us from Chicago.
Breakfast on Thanksgiving morning - pumpkin bread!
The centerpiece on the table.
Ready for Thanksgiving dinner.
My parents and I got up at 5:30 on Black Friday to get 99 cent poinsettias at Lowe's. (that otherwise would have been between 4 & 8 dollars each depending on where we got them) We got 18 between our homes. Yep, we're funny like that.
The wreath I decorated for our front door.
We got our Christmas card from Aspen Boutique this weekend too!
And finally - a little late but here are the flowers Mike got me for our anniversary. :-)
