Thanksgiving Week

Matthew and Sarah, Isaac's brother and sister, came to visit us this week, arriving Tuesday night and heading back for BYU after Sacrament this morning. We thoroughly enjoyed having them, and hopefully Sophie was not too crazy for them. :)

Wednesday, Isaac worked a lunch shift, so I took Matthew and Sarah to eat at the Elephant Bar. I got a Greek salad I had never had before, and it was pretty good. We went to Mom & Dad's house for dinner; Mom's meal consisted of Mahi Mahi, shrimp and fresh pineapple among other things. Sarah, Isaac and I made chocolate chip cookies for Thanksgiving.

On Thanksgiving, we had Belgian waffles with syrup, whipped cream, strawberries or peanut butter, then we made deviled eggs and went to Grandma Anderson's house for dinner. We had all the traditional turkey, corn, potatoes, yams, stuffing, jello, rolls, a variety of desserts... I forgot to take pictures ON Thanksgiving: lame. I took a few the rest of the week though.

Friday, Isaac, Sarah and Matthew started the day early by going to Kohl's and Half Price Books for a little Black Friday fun, and I decorated for Christmas. I've been waiting so long! we went to Half Moon Bay and explored a couple of beaches around there. We ate at In'N'Out and watched Twilight in Union City. Thankfully, it was even better than some people expected it to be.

Saturday, we went to San Francisco. We went to Golden Gate park and saw the bisons, the windmill, the Cliff House, the Bath House ruins, and the beach. Isaac, Mandy, Sarah, and Matthew explored the old ruins, where Isaac and Sarah were drenched by a surprise wave. We ate incredible ice cream sundaes at the Ghirardelli Factory. I ran into a former student when we were getting salt water taffy and sourdough bread at Fisherman's Wharf. That night we played Cranium, watched football, and ate a fabulous dinner prepared by Isaac, the grill master/wave magnet.

Becca! I didn't even know you linked to my blog! :) That's how I found YOUR blog. Anyways, that sounds like a really great Thanksgiving week! I still have never been to Golden Gate Park, and I've lived close to it my whole life. So sad.
