The Motor City

We are off to Detroit for the holiday weekend. The last time I was in Michigan for Thanksgiving was 3 years ago and I was 7 months pregnant with Scarlett. I look at this picture with my sisters/sister in law/mom from Thanksgiving of 07, and it feels like yesterday...
I have been put in charge of appetizers for the entire weekend, I have yummy ones lined up...
but of course the reason we are all together is Thanksgiving dinner.
In addition to non stop eating, we will see a live performance of "A Christmas Carol"....
an entire family picture...

My nephew, who was just adopted from Korea, will be baptized...
and of course a little shopping...
There is a fabulous mall in Detroit that has just about every store imaginable. I have to spend black Friday shopping, otherwise it just doesn't feel right. My hubs thinks I am insane!!

I hope you all have a fun filled, family filled, happy and beautiful Thanksgiving!!
