Thanksgiving Recap

Thanksgiving might be my family’s favorite holiday. Most folks don’t turn their noses up at feast days, and we are no different. I would go so far as to say that we fully embrace “feast day” as a challenge. Thus, on Thanksgiving, a Holt can unreservedly be a Holt. To illustrate, our traditional Thanksgiving Day Breakfast:


Puppy Chow

We have this delectable dish no other time of year (well, maybe at Christmas, but not for breakfast), and it is what we munch on while the rest of the dishes cook.

Lest you worry too much about our health, we have other food around on Thanksgiving as well.

From the top down we have:
1. Pumpkin Cookies (fruit)
2. No Bake Cookies (grain and protein)
3. Chex Mix (grain, sodium, msg)
4. Puppy Chow (manna from heaven)
5. Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats with Chocolate Glaze on top (Corn Syrup)

I think that covers all the major food groups.

It was actually very nice out on Thanksgiving this year, so of course we spent some time outside.

Athrun probably got the best workout. He even wore out the dog.


Chloe, my parent’s Golden Doodle, who is more Doodle than Golden.


Always ready to pose for a picture, Athrun does his best glamor shot.

And that’s where the picture taking ended because the hardcore eating began not long after. All told, it was a really good day.

Holiday Sale!

I realize my suede boots aren’t particularly festive, but that it is finally cold enough to wear them gets me into a holiday sort of mood. Plus, they are just really awesome boots. Last winter, all I needed were these tough guys and a pair of wool socks and I was ready to brave the 10 + inches of snow on the ground. (I did treat them, but as you can see some street salt still got to them.

Speaking of wool socks, and other woolens, I have a promotion running the weekend after Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday season. From 12:01am on Friday, November 25th through 11:59pm on Monday, November 28th, all items in the Tiny Dino Studios etsy shop will be 15% off with the coupon code BOOTS2011
