Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a marvelous Thanksgiving! For my family and I, we spent it at the beach-hence my lack of posting. It was our very first year NOT being with either side of the extended family. We went down to Florida, and stayed in a condo for a week. It took 15 hours to get there, but we made it! Since it is November it was not the warmest it could have been, but it was warm enough for us to swim in the ocean, and the pool. It only rained one day, and we went shopping.
We rented bikes for the week, went swimming, watched the food network, relaxed, visited a wild life preserve, picked fresh oranges/grapefruits/limes, & went shopping.
For thanksgiving dinner we had-
Turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, rolls, iced tea, & pumpkin pie.
Everything was great!
I bought several souvenirs-
- 1 pair of shell earrings
- 1 pair of sea horse earrings
- 1 pair of starfish earrings
- Shells (both at the beach and at a store.)
I am very excited about my earrings! They are very nautical and were only $5! INCREDIBLE!!!
Last night my youth group watched 'The Prestige.' It was a very interesting movie- and yet I liked it. We had a long discussion about it afterwards. It was kind of dark and depressing, but I cannot even believe how someone thought up the plot. It was kind of like a mystery, about two magicians batting each other, and seeing who could make the best tricks. There were some gory scenes, so I would not advise that little kids watch it. Have you seen it? If so, what did you think?
