Thanksgiving Weekend

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend; we sure did. Rochelle fed us dinner (athankya) and on Friday, we avoided the shopping crowds and took AJ to see Tangled.

She has been watching the trailer everyday for almost 6 months (note the barely-containable excitement on her face)

and I must say, it did not disappoint. It was sweet and funny and Craig and I may or may not have cried at the end.
We enjoyed some yumminess at j.raes bakery. Cupcake frosting is INSANE...

We also just happened to be downtown for the Parade of Lights.

We took in the festivities for a while and then spent the night at the Omni Hotel.

We got the hookup with a corner room which had floor to ceiling windows on two walls which gave us an amazing view of downtown. We didn't take any pics, but we also stayed there last year at Christmas time and I don't think I ever posted those pics, so now seems like a good time.

Nice hotels are most famous for:

super-bouncy beds, right? (Hey AJ - crack kills!)

Pristine game-playing surfaces:

Wrestling matches:

And spa robes. AJ made herself comfortable for her favorite part - milk and warm cookies sent up at turndown.

Thanksgiving was great - Bring on Christmas!!!

Glad you guys had such a great time. I LOVED Tangled, too. I totally cried at the end. It was so sweet.

Looks like fun! I think we're going to escape to a hotel next year. Sigh. I need a vacation from vacation!!

I can't believe how big AJ is. Looks like a five-star weekend!
