Thanksgiving in Oregon Recap

Hope that you all had wonderful Thanksgivings! As usual we went to Oregon to spend 3 days with the Mr's family.

Thanksgiving itself was pretty low key. As usual, the Mr. and I were in charge of the mashed potatoes.

I ate so so much! We had all the traditional fare -- turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green been casserole, sweet potato casserole, and lots of pies!

The day after thanksgiving we went to Mike's U-Cut Christmas Tree farm and cut down trees for my in-laws and brother in-law's homes.

The Mr's family has gone to this Christmas tree farm for the last 15 years, because it's seriously a great deal. You pick your own tree and cut it down for just $10. But I guess pine trees are pretty easy to come by in Oregon. Ha!

As usual the Mr. and his brothers were up to all kinds of mischief at the Christmas tree farm. I love this picture of him laughing.

Speaking of pictures I like, I took this at the Christmas tree farm and liked it so much that it's my new computer desktop background until Christmas. I thought it was festive for December.

Saturday we flew back to LA and watched USC beat UCLA 50-0. Take that bRuins!


Sunday we decorated our house for Christmas and did Christmas cards! More to come on that.

Thanksgiving was fun but Christmas this year is going to be seriously amazing! More to come on that too!

I've always wanted to do a "cut your own tree" deal for Christmas! It always sounds fun!

I'm determined to cut our own tree down once or if we ever are able to have kids.
So fun and great family tradition!Can't wait to hear about your Christmas plans!! We went to the Bahamas last year! Different but fun!

I really want to cut down our own tree this year but it's already so cold and we'd have to drive out somewhere to far to find one of those places. They sound like so much fun!
