Another Great One

Another great weekend was had by the Athanases this week!

Friday night we went over to the Carrolls' for a wine and appetizer party. We brought a Karl Erbes Reisling and what seem to a platter of Thanksgiving pinwheels. We had an awesome time hanging out, sipping on some wine and munching on things. Steve played a couple of games of chess and I hung out with a couple of the ladies chit-chatting it up. We forgot the SD card for the camera, so while we didn't get a ton of pictures we did get this one of little Theo "breakdancing" (before he settled into some Thomas the Tank Engine on YouTube).



Saturday we lounged around for a while and then headed out to Sterling for the Drumms' 1st Annual Pre-Thanksgiving festivities. We had yet another great time out there. Sarah made an awesome feast with twice baked taters, broccoli, homemade bread, spaghetti squash, green bean casserole and of course a roast beast (did you like that "Grinch" reference?). Desserts of cheesecake and cranberry trifle were provided by Josh and Kiki - all the food was quite delish. After dinner and some chatting, the 8 of us got in a rousing game of Cranium which was an AWESOME time with much joy and laughter. Team Athanas won the game, but hopefully next time we all get together there'll be a rematch and who knows what happens then! We've decided it's definitely one we're going to purchase - in fact, Target has games on sale this week so we might go check it out! Here's us (well, except me 'cause I'm taking the picture) all playing Cranium:



Sunday wasn't bad either. We went to church, then headed up to Merrimack NH for lunch at Newick's. Problem was - Newick's CLOSED!!! We were bummed, so we just grabbed some Quizno's and popped in to visit my grandparents. They just celebrated their 53rd wedding anniversary - I hope that God is able to bless Steve and I with that many years! We visited with them for a bit, then headed back to Salem to do some errands and came home. I worked on my Christmas gift crocheting for a bit, then we had pizza & beer for dinner while we watched the end of the Cowboys game and of course - the PATS GAME!! Wow - what a domination fest that was! I'm thinking the Pats are Super Bowl bound for sure.

Hope you all had great weekends too!!
