Winterfest in Portland

We headed down to Portland after school the weekend before Thanksgiving.  Friday night we had a complete Thanksgiving dinner with all of Ted's family...I think there were 18 of us.   The food was delicious and it was nice seeing his family.

Saturday morning we slept in (well, I did!  I stayed up too late watching hallmark movie, and sleep way to well upstairs at Grandmas)

We headed downtown and took a carriage ride around the block
and explored the trees in the courthouse

After a lazy afternoon including football, naps, a visit to Kate and Pampa's grave and some more turkey we bundled up and went to the light parade.  It was VERY cold and had snowed, so the roads were slick...I felt bad for the marchers and walkers!

We drove home after the parade...grateful for a fun weekend with family!
