Our Thanksgiving weekend, was spent at my sister's, with her and her husband and their daughter's. As far as people go, you will find no better people. They have a home out in the middle of a wooded area, that is breath taking beautiful. It is their sanctuary and they open it up to anyone that wants to come. They are hardworking, fun, generous, laid back, easy going type of people, that have the gift of hospitality. Besides eating lots of good food and drinking some excellent wines, and a few cold beers, our Thanksgiving weekend was spent Minnesota style, bundled up outside... playing in the woods, sitting around the fire outside, going for tractor and 4 wheeler rides, sliding around on the frozen pond next to their house, helping haul and stack wood, sharing lots of laughter and my most favorite, sitting in the hot tub, while it snowed and watching the deer come up to eat.
The only time we left their place, was to go to a fish house parade. The turn out for this parade is amazing and everyone has a good time. The people get pretty creative with these fish houses and some go all out. It was hilarious and my little people had a blast. Here are the kinds of things you see at a fish house parade....
My two little spectators...loving the parade...loving all the candy that was thrown.
Even Santa was one of the spectators!
Try explaining to a 2 and 3 year old how Santa can watch the parade AND be in the parade!
Last, but not least, no parade is complete without roller derby girls.
