Boy, did we have a good Thanksgiving holiday.  In fact, we kind of had two Thanksgivings.  We had the pre-Thanksgiving which was a great get-together of Jess' family. Most of his family was going to be gone on Thanksgiving, so we just decided to do Thanksgiving with them on Sunday after our cute new niece was blessed.  Then on Thursday we got together with my family for another Thanksgiving.  As a result, we had double delicious food, conversation, and good times.

We also packed in some more visiting throughout the weekend, put up Christmas decor, and went to sing in Handel's Messiah. This was a great year for singing.  I actually practiced this year, so I felt like I knew the chorus pieces a bit better, not perfect, but better.  The hall was filled to the gills and the sound of everyone singing was marvelous.  The conductor even had us sing a Hallelujah chorus encore.  Magnificent.

Now I'm eating oatmeal with leftover cranberry sauce, we are listening to Harry Connick Jr. sing Christmas tunes, and we can't believe Christmas is about three weeks away.
