Thanksgiving, Black Friday, White Christmas

The day before Thanksgiving was the sweet courthouse wedding of Stephanie and Justin. I rarely have the chance to shoot a small, casual wedding, and I jumped at the chance! The officiant is a friend of the family, and everyone was so comfortable… Resulting in natural, relaxed smiles. After the ceremony, we hopped over to the 400 block in Wausau and popped in to Malarkey’s Pub for a quick drink!

Congratulations, Justin and Steph!
We hosted our annual Thanksgiving dinner with my mom, Gram and Grampie, and Jean and Mark.

It was pretty low-key this year, but I made my pies. It’s a tradition!

And of course, the annual post-dinner photo of me and Grampie on the couch πŸ™‚

Since Grampie can’t hear, we usually just sit there and not talk, but I brought down a dry erase board and we got to share a few laughs. He usually asks me about fly fishing… And this occasion didn’t disappoint! He wanted to know if I fish in waders or just dresses πŸ™‚ here’s the honest answer…

We sent everyone on their way, full and happy, and Amy came over for pie slice #2 and finalizing our Black Friday shopping game plan. It was successful…

A new suitcase, for all my upcoming travel. πŸ™‚

We returned home in the wee hours of the morning, and I took a short nap to prepare for opening night of White Christmas. I was playing two roles- tap dancer, and pit orchestra musician. I ran between the two throughout the show. πŸ™‚ Here’s a busy show weekend in photos…

During the show, I had a serious romance with Tyler… And he proposed in the final scene. Look at that rock! πŸ˜‰

And just to leave you on a very curly 1980’s happy note, here is me from my first year of tap dance lessons (photo courtesy of Robert Payne)

Once a stylish woman, always a stylish woman. πŸ™‚
Stay tuned for a whirlwind of December, including Amanda and Andy’s engagement photos, a trip to Idaho, a game at Lambeau, and more adventures… Including my triumphant return to running πŸ™‚
