Our First Thanksgiving in Denver — and the Best Surprise Ever!

01_TaurkeyTrot
Well friends — my husband, sister and brother-in-law pulled off the best secret ever when my sis and bro-in-law flew to Denver last Wednesday to spend Thanksgiving with us. We had such a great time with them here, and while I was sad to see them go, it certainly helps to have the next visit planned (February, here I come!) before saying goodbye.

Here’s a bit of what we got up to:

01_TurkeyTrot^^ All geared up and ready to run the Washington Park Turkey Trot! It snowed … like a lot … on Thanksgiving, so Steph and I sat this one out in the car and chatted while we waited for the boys to finish 😉

02_Roof^^ See what I mean — snow! From our rooftop, downtown Denver looked like a snow globe.

02_ThanksgivingMeal^^ Not a bad little Thanksgiving meal we made for ourselves, if I do say so myself!

03_Prost^^ Game time at Prost Brewing.

04_InfiniteMonkeyTheorem^^ Cuddles at The Infinite Monkey Theorem.  We also visited Ratio Beerworks and had dinner at Park Burger.

05_TreeShopping^^ On our way to King Soopers to check out their tree selections (sad, I know), we passed The Big Wonderful night bazaar, and low and behold, they were selling trees! (Happy!) So of course we stopped and picked out a great one, which we affectionately named Esmerelda.

08_Mannie^^ Loaded on Mannie and ready to go home.

09_Ezzie^^ Okay, so our tree is half icicle lights and half regular lights — I think it gives her character!

10_Distillery^^ We attended a going away party Saturday night at Mile High Spirits,  where the couple that is moving actually got engaged, as well. It turned out to be a pretty special night.

14_Distillery^^ We got mad love for you kids — you’re welcome back any time!

And that was Thanksgiving in a nutshell, my friends! Bis bald — and and hey … happy December!
