Post-Turkey, Pre-Fruit Cake

Sometimes it’s nice to let the pictures do the talking. Now that my brother and I no longer live at home, and he lives further away, we get together at my parent’s house the weekend after Thanksgiving to decorate for Christmas, make cookies, sing along to Alvin and Chimpmunks Christmas tape (yes, cassette tape)…all that good stuff. It’s a nice tradition. So while this post is more than a few days late, here was my post-Thanksgiving/pre-Christmas family weekend:
