The Saturday after Thanksgiving has turned into a very fun tradition for us! Boise has a Christmas Tree lighting ceremony downtown every year that we really enjoy going to. Everyone holds a red or green candle, and the sight among the crowd after the sun goes down is amazing!

Aaaaahhhh... Thanksgiving. I LOVE this holiday! Always filled with the Macy's Parade, a 1,000 piece puzzle to be done before Christmas, home videos, and cooking all day. And believe it or not, that part is actually fun for me, since I save all my cooking and baking for one day of the year!
And please allow myself to pat myself on the back for a minute.... it actually all turns out pretty darn delicious! The family really appreciates the meal when the the rest of the year is hamburger helper, grilled cheese, and spaghetti! (from a jar even)
Mashed potatoes that didn't come from a box are a rare treat around here... once a year rare!
I actually love that I don't cook these kinds of meals often... (at all)... we would never enjoy it as much as we do on Thanksgiving! And I am ever so grateful for a wonderful family who all happily agree!

I am very behind here, but also have a very good excuse - surgery!! So, slowly I will catch up to 2010..... but for now, here is some of November of 2009!
We love the Veteran's Day parade every year.... it has become a family tradition.
I think my favorite part is when a local high school football team carries this enormous American Flag down the street. It always takes my breath away.
