Happy Thanksgiving….the Arnold way!!

Our family has always been a bit weird when it comes to holidays and Thanksgiving is no exception

Our son, Brian and his wife Amber spent the morning running in the Peachtree Half-Marathon in Atlanta. Brian did the half…..

….while Amber ran in the 5k. After they finished…..

….they ate at their favorite Korean Restaurant and spent the day recovering!! We celebrated Thanksgiving with them last Sunday.

Jenny and Kevin arrived for brunch, starting off with traditional Mimosas……

….and a family selfie…..

After eating our brunch, we made the traditional trip to the Tree Farm and picked out our 2 trees. After Michael and Kevin practiced with the small tree……

…it was time to tackle the 14 foot tree. We normally put the tree in the stand and then carry it into the house. Kevin asked the obvious question….why don’t we carry it into the house and THEN put it into the stand…..DUH!!!!

They carried it into the house (with Jenny helping by taking selfies)…..

And, in about 5 minutes, the tree was up and secure!!!…..

Michael said a big”THANK YOU” to Kev for his help!!!

After the kids left to go visit Kevin’s family, I headed to my studio for about 2 hours and then proceeded to strip the house of all decorations…..

Tomorrow I will decorate for the upcoming holidays!!

Thanksgiving dinner consisted of Cheese Dip, Salsa, Guacamole and Tostitos….

I hope that your Thanksgiving was equally fun and traditional!!!!

One side note here…… if you have a large tree and are looking for a good solid tree stand, I can highly recommend the Krinner Tree Genie…..

It is a bit pricey, but it is super easy to use and completely stable….a win-win!!

  1. We had that tree stand in DE and it was great. Worth every penny. We purchased an artificial tree about 8 yrs ago and gave the stand to our neighbor. He is still using it.
