We have a fun tradition every year with our family-ish friends.
We hang out together at our house for the day on Thanksgiving weekend (and/or Christmas).
We start with brunch and usually there is a hike, wii fest, board games, more food, chatting and so on.
We love this tradition we love these people and 12 hours passes in a flash.
This year we shook it up and instead of a hike with the dogs(it was rainy & muddy), we made beer, knitted, sewed, worked on a quilt, ate, did puzzles, played wii, chatted, ordered in dinner, ironed, folded laundry and crafted.
It was a wonderful fun filled day...it is not everyday you can invite guests over and they bring along their sewing machine & slippers.
This might be the new tradition!
these sad little photos are pure documentation of good times.
