Thanksgiving wrap-up

Mom and queencimmy came to visit for Thanksgiving. They showed up Tuesday night and I had Wednesday off from work, so I could spend all day with them. The three of us went shopping at Ikea and the Round Rock Outlet Mall (because mom had never been to Ikea and because we all love outlet shopping). I made dinner on Wednesday night which turned out well. :)

On Thanksgiving morning, we started watching the parade, but had to pause it to prep dinner. I made a pie, which set off the smoke detectors because of the grease on the bottom of the stove. I had to make a last minute trip to the store for more butter (because I didn't get enough when I went to Central Market last Sunday to buy everything). Around 4, Cimmy and I drove downtown to pick up Pirate Wench who was in town as the guardian for one of the children in the touring cast of 101 Dalmatians. Thanksgiving dinner was delicious, even with Aerith's cranberry melt. After dinner we played Apples to Apples, which was very interesting to play with a 12 year old girl.

Yesterday I went out with mom to do a little shopping. Then Cimmy and I finally finished the Macy's Day Parade. Then I made dinner, which turned out well and afterwards we played a little bit of the Apples to Apples Jewish Edition that I bought for mom. I think my favorite was in the last round when Aerith was judging "neglected" and I played "My Jewish Education".

We headed downtown to the Drafthouse to see Horrible Turn, a fan made prequel to Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog. Ran into emeraldliz and her people. It was fun to see it, especially with some of the cast and crew there.

Mom and Cimmy left this morning, so now is chill time (aka watching bad tv) before heading back to work on Monday.
