Our first Thanksgiving as husband and wife was absolutely FANTASTIC!!!! It was also my first Thanksgiving to host! I might have gone a little overboard with the planning, but I wanted to make sure everything turned out JUST right! Justin's Dad, Stepmom, Heath and Ashley, and Catie came to visit us! We had SO MUCH FUN! It was such a great weekend and we had a lot of fun family time. They got here really late Wednesday night and Heath and Ashley borught me a gift! It was the FOUR pack of the Vacation movies! I was thrilled!! Thursday morning we woke up and had waffles and bacon and country ham. Then we got started on the feast! Alice helped me get the Turkey ready and on the rotisserie and then we got to work! Justin, Mark, Alice, Heath and Catie all went to visit the monuments while Ashley and I finished the cooking. Everything was delicious!!! We had SO much food! After the feast, we all walked down to the White House and took some pictures and did some sightseeing. We came back home and settled on the couch to watch Christmas Vacation, mine and Heath's favorite! Then we played Dominoes til late and had a blast! Friday we did some shopping and more sightseeing and went to the National Harbor to see the big Christmas tree and some fireworks! We were going to Ice Skate but it was FREEZING! Saturday we did some more sightseeing complete with a Capital tour for Mark, Alice and Catie and then went to the Wizards-Bobcats game on Saturday night. They had to leave early Sunday morning and we were sad to see them go. I really love having family around. It was SO much fun! Can't wait til Christmas! :) There are a few pictures from our weekend!
