Any major fiascoes on Thanksgiving?


Did you go shopping on black Friday?


Do you use up every last bit of leftovers?


How have you been spending the rest of the weekend?


When do the Christmas decorations go up?

No major problems. Two minor ones.

Any major fiascoes on Thanksgiving? My sister and I managed to burn the brown and serve rolls. As usual for my sister. But this time, it was a joint effort of miscommunication. She set the oven temp. correctly but I forgot to tell her that the rack had to be in the middle. And I didn't think of that she would have lowered the rack for the turkey.

Did you go shopping on black Friday? Never.

Do you use up every last bit of leftovers? What leftovers? There were 18 of us this year.

How have you been spending the rest of the weekend? Cleaning out the sewing room so that Alex and Lindsay can have that bedroom.

When do the Christmas decorations go up? Usually this weekend. But this year Adam is in charge and his days off will be Monday and Tuesday.

Any major fiascoes on Thanksgiving? **Well, I wouldn't call it a major fiasco, but my sister ended up in the ER around 10pm having an asthma attack. Thankfully, there was hardly anyone there and they took her back immediately so she was done w/in an hour. Other than that, nothing else crazy happened.

Did you go shopping on black Friday? **No, never do. And after seeing what happened at Walmart in NY, I will never go. I think retailers are partially responsible for what happened and think Walmart should be held accountable. Ok, off my soapbox.

Do you use up every last bit of leftovers? **We didn't bring anything home except the remains of the caramel apple pie and pumpkin chiffon pie that we brought. But no, I don't usually end up using up every last bit when we do have leftovers. Most of it, but not all.

How have you been spending the rest of the weekend? **Mainly hanging with family - my kids and dh, my sister and her family from out of town, and a childhood friend and her family came over last night to visit. Mostly just relaxing at home and doing things around the house.

When do the Christmas decorations go up? **Not for another two weeks unless we have a fluke warm day before that and I'll take advantage of it to put up my garland outside. We won't get our tree until probably the weekend before Christmas as we leave it up until the Epiphany but I'll put up my other decorations before that.

Any major fiascoes on Thanksgiving? No, except for a goodawful headcold that started thanksgiving evening.

Did you go shopping on black Friday? No - the kids got haircuts and we enjoyed hot weiners and coffee milk - A RIers lunch to die for (and the heartburn could kill).

Do you use up every last bit of leftovers? Made and freezed large quantities of turkey divan.

How have you been spending the rest of the weekend? Sick and online shopping.

When do the Christmas decorations go up? Er, holiday tablecloth has gone on the dining room table, I've got a pointsettia from my dad I will probably kill before Christmas, but we're two weeks away from tree et al.

Any major fiascoes on Thanksgiving? Nope. We had our two dinners as planned-- one at MIL's one at my parents'.

Did you go shopping on black Friday? No.

Do you use up every last bit of leftovers? No leftovers for us. :( We're hosting Christmas dinner though, so hopefully we'll have them then.

How have you been spending the rest of the weekend? Cleaning and lazing around.

When do the Christmas decorations go up? I'll probably start putting stuff up this week. We're maybe going to get a tree next weekend, but we'll see if my dad feels like taking us . . .
