Thanksgiving 2012

For Thanksgiving, we went to Cape Cod to celebrate with Kevin's family. Kevin's mother and aunt Mary made all of the delicious Thanksgiving dinner because they are amazing! Kevin's grandmother Ruth made her two of her famous apple pies. Andrew came from Florida to celebrate both Thanksgiving and his 29th birthday.

The five Clous on Thanksgiving: Andrew, Kathy, James, Kevin, and me

We also had uncle Dick and cousin Chris there, so it was a very full and loud house. In fact, we were only quiet when we started eating the delicious meal. We didn't have the whole family there though. We were missing aunt Nesie, uncle Steve, and Kevin's cousin Katie. His aunt Nesie and uncle Steve couldn't be there because they were celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary in Hawaii, but they did call us in between climbing a volcano and going to the beach. What a perfect way to celebrate such a special anniversary!

Thanksgiving dinner!

James enjoyed his second Thanksgiving dinner ever. Last year he only had the sides, but this year he got turkey and pie as well so he was a pretty happy guy. Except for the entire time he wasn't eating, when he spent the afternoon chasing the dog and running all over grandma's house so that Kevin and I were exhausted by the time the party was over.

Someone stuck his finger in the pie, but I'm not telling who did it

In leui of a birthday cake, Andrew blew out some candles on the apple pie. His real birthday treat is next weekend when the Clous are visiting him in Florida and taking him to a Patriots v. Dolphins game.  We're excited to go!

After dinner, Kevin got psyched for the evening Patriots v. Jets game by changing James into his new Brady jersey and tossing the football with him. James and his little jersey must be good luck for the Patriots because they won! Woo!

We're not big into shopping on Black Friday (or shopping much at all actually) so on Friday we went went for a hike around Nauset Marsh Trail. I really liked it because it's beautiful, a fairly short 3-mile hike, and most importantly, flat!

That evening we went to the 28 Club, which I haven't been back to since we had our wedding welcome party there, so I was long overdue. I had a lot of fun, which some of you already know about because you may have received some drinking-and-texting love from me.
