Thanksgiving was quiet and quite enjoyable. There were 12 of us for dinner – 10 family and 2 friends. We had a good time, plenty of good food. The table is courtesy of my very crafty sister who sees things that I never will. The turkey was a native Vermonter and quite tasty, too.
After we were quite stuffed, the men took the boys on Friday to go snowboarding at Okemo, which gave my sister, Donna and I a great opportunity to spend some quality, sister time. We got our nails done and had a nice lunch. Thanks men! It was nice and refreshing to be able to have some conversation with my sister besides that which occurs while we are washing dishes, chasing kids or cleaning up. This was a treat! I don’t get to see her very often and miss chatting with her and hanging in person. The boys of course had a blast as usual. They get along so well and always have fun when they are together, a force to be reckoned with.
Saturday was snowmobile certification class day in Belmont so everyone (meaning the boys) can ride in the park on their own sleds this year. Everyone passed!
