A VA Beach Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving!! We are spending Thanksgiving Day in VA Beach and eating way too much! For most engaged couples celebrating holiday’s with two families may take some getting used to, but Michael and I, we’re quite accustomed to it! We have been sharing Thanksgivings for the past 7 years.  We’ve spent Thanksgivings in Sparta, in Bowling Green, in Richmond, West Virginia, and this year we’re in VA Beach at Uncle John’s and Aunt Charlotte’s.  It’s so nice to be away from school and the library…. work in general! But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been taking pictures! Here are a few family pics from today.

Thanksgiving Festivas 2009


pilgrims and indians

I love college for so many reasons. One being that absolutely ANY holiday can be turned into a reason to have a costume party.  I felt like we were JUST frantically searching thrift stores for halloween costumes!

This past Saturday, some of our guy friends hosted the first ever Thanksgiving Festivus! Don’t ask me where that name came from but the festivities included homemade food, sweet outfits and a campus wide hunt for a turkey! Crazy. It was great and even though I could be there for a small bit of the fun, it made me thankful for friends, being young, good food and amazing memories.
