Thanksgiving- Imperfect Style

Mr. Perfect and I spent Thanksgiving with his parents and extended family in Smalltown, SC this year. We alternate holidays, Thanksgiving with one family, Christmas with the other, right now and it's always worked well for us. Not sure how it will play out next year with the little one here, but I'll worry about that tomorrow.

We both had to work a half day on the Wednesday before T-day. Complete wast of time as I did nothing for 4 hours. We wanted to get out of here about 12:30 and head north, but of course, we didn't make that. We will be late to our own funerals for sure.

The ride up there of course took longer than planned since duh, we didn't factor in traffic. Mr. Perfect's mom wanted to go look at cribs when we got there, but it didn't look like we were going to make it in time.

Thanks to Mr. Perfect's lead foot, we still got there in great time. We spent Wednesday night walking around Target with Mr.'s family and looking at baby stuff. Overwhelming. I have no idea what this little one needs. I know what I want though.. Maybe those will mesh.

Thanksgiving Day dawned cold and wet. Nice. The Mr. and his little cousin decided to go do some shooting before everyone got to the house for dinner.

Yours truly observing. I don't do guns.

While I was out with the boys, Mr. Perfect got a phone call from his Dad that one of their family cats had been run over. He didn't want Mr.'s Mom to find out so we quickly went to get it taken care of. Mr. Perfect sent me in to "distract" his mom so she wouldn't see them burying the cat. I'm ashamed to admit I had to use our daughter to distract her. Poor girl. Already involved in schemes and hasn't even made it here yet...

We got that taken care of and less than an hour later, Mr.'s Mom gets a phone call from her sister telling her that their other cat has been hit on the highway.

Are you kiddin' me?!?

This was not funny at all, but do you see the irony?! Who has two pets killed in one hour on a holiday!?

Fortunately, the holiday got a little less exciting after that. Tons of family, tons of food, and lots of fun with Mr. Perfect's humongous family.

Us with most of his cousins.

Mr. Perfect had to be at work at 4 the next morning, so we packed up and left right after dinner. It's always fun to spend time with family, but I'm not going to lie; it makes me really cherish our nice quiet existence we have here in Georgia.

Before dinner.

After dinner. Yes I changed into more comfortable clothes for the ride home, although the all black ensemble was definitely a fitting choice for that day.

Not funny, I know.

All in all, very nice holiday. Besides the fact that traveling stinks when you have to stop for bathroom breaks every hours, it was a nice little trip. Hopefully you all had a great Thanksgiving as well!
