My Thanksgiving weekend

My Thanksgiving was wonderful, spent with family and lots of good food. This is a pic of my mom and me.



I went to the mountains with some girlfriends, four women in a huge cabin for an entire 3 day weekend.... and we had a BLAST (and ALOT of wine!)

We each brought a meal to prepare and share, mine was Saturday morning breakfast. I made scrambled eggs with onion, garlic, red/green bell peppers; bacon; a potato and cheese casserole; diced cantaloupe/honeydew melon; yogurt; cinnamon rolls; OJ, and coffee (with bailey's... LOL!!!) Can you imagine... all that food for just four women... not big women either (well, maybe ONE {she says blushing}). We did have just a bit of leftovers, but not much!

We went on a hike... I actually CLIMBED a pretty good size dirt hill !!!!! We met a beautiful (and VERY FRIENDLY) black cat named Tuna Breath!!

We watched movies and played games like Scrabble and Uno... and mainly just laughed ALOT (and even cried, just a little) all weekend long!!

This was us enjoying the cool mountain air on one of the many deck around the cabin! The girl with the BIG smile on bottom is Roseann, it was her 50th that we were celebrating, her birthday was on Thanksgiving day!!

    Under normal circumstances, I'd be thinking that the climb would be crazy and adventurous. But add four girls and some wine, and my goodness, that can dangerous...lol... glad you had a good weekend.
