Best Family Group Activity:
Excellent, right?? On Saturday we made an ambitious road trip (read: 6 adults and a baby in ONE TAHOE! Guess which two (tall) adults drew the short straws and got to share the third-row backseat for six hours?? WEEEE!!) down south to my sister and brother-in-law's house. We hardly ever get to all be together, so we really took advantage of our time and...yeah. Fell asleep. Some crazy party animals we are. But for real, that is like the comfiest and hugest couch of all time. So you can't really blame us.

Best Non-Thanksgivingish Food
I happened to spot this recipe while perusing Pinterest on Wednesday night. Turns out that my mom had all of the ingredients on hand, so Thursday afternoon found me making this as an impromptu appetizer AND THEN WE ALL DIED OF HAPPINESS BECAUSE IT WAS THE BEST THING WE HAD EVER EATEN. (I came back from the dead (I'm a ghost!) so that I could write this blog.)

Best Attempt at Being a Photographer:
My sis-in-law Emily called in my mad (but extremely rusty) photography skillz in hopes that we could get something Christmas card-worthy. This basically meant I took pictures for 2 hours and got about 4 pictures that weren't vomitrocious. So it was awesome. Bah. But at least we had fun and Carley was happy and super cute! And she didn't spit up on her Santa dress! So it was actually a win. And I really did get a few cute (if not particularly skillful) shots.
After we were done we borrowed Carley for a few pictures with our favorite niece.
Yeah, that's cute. Dang we look good with babies.
All in all, it was a great holiday weekend. There was some ridiculously freaking awesome football. I ate a ton of awesome food. And then when we got back home, we went and played tennis (for the first time in like 5 months) and I wasn't as rusty as I'd thought I would be! And now it's another week- but more importantly, it's Cyber Monday and we're hoping to get a new computer. So that's exciting. And also it's December and only 10 days til my birthday. OH and we finished the first 5 seasons of Parks & Rec!!!! And it is the best show ever. Amen.
