So the day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday) my brother, Elic and I headed out in the early morning for some shopping. I left Ellison at home with her daddy, partially because I was picking up Christmas gifts for her and she still was a little under the weather from her croup. Elic was a champ...he slept the whole time except woke up once to nurse (which I did in the car while my brother stood in the forever long line in Toys R Us). I have done Black Friday shopping with my brother the past couple of years and always have enjoyed it. We got some things marked off our lists which is always good :)
Elic and I returned home for some relaxation and regrouping. Then we all headed to my parents house to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family. It was a little different this year since my grandmother was at the rehab center recovering from her fall. However, following dinner we all (10 adults and my 2 little ones) went over to the rehab center with dinner plates and dessert for my grandmother and grandfather. We had a nice family gathering and celebration! I didn't get as many pictures as I hoped...my cousin (Grace) took a TON of photos so I will add more once she sends them to me.
