Today Connor & I are working half days then driving up to Fredericksburg to spend Thanksgiving with his family. We have been splitting holidays since we started dating (first Thanksgiving at his house was in 2006!) We go do Thanksgiving with his family and Christmas with mine. His family does a very traditional Thanksgiving...Turkey Trot in the morning, followed by muffins & coffee. I spend the day chopping veggies for the stuffing and helping his mother in the kitchen. We then put the bird in the oven, get ready, and have a blind Champagne tasting (my kinda party!). After a few bottles and maybe a round of Charades or two (getting more creative with each bottle finished), we sit down and have an early dinner.
Friday is spent either shopping around Caroline Street (with a mandatory trip in to Monkees!) or visiting Connor's Grandmommy in Richmond. We then head back home and get the food ready again for his parent's annual Leftovers Dinner. They invite whoever's in town that year, and everyone brings their leftovers (duh) for some more great food & company.
It is always a great time! My favorite Fredericksburg people usually come over for a round of pool and some good food
Saturday, we get up and say our goodbyes. We drive to Charlottesville to spend the day with my family. We usually try to take our Christmas Card picture...
There's always a nice dinner and great company! Oh, and Bodo's.
I hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving break!
