Beth’s parents and sister Janet were nice enough to drive up from Houston and Beth’s other sister Stacy drove over from Fayetteville, AR to spend Thanksgiving with us. Wednesday night, Beth, Stacy, and I went to McNellie’s Pub in downtown Tulsa for $3 burger night. I was pretty surprised when we pulled up and found out we had a 30 minute wait on a Wednesday night. I guess it’s a popular place. The food there is good, especially their sweet potato fries, unfortunately their drink prices are outrageous. This is the type of place that we would probably go to more frequently if they didn’t think their bar was the best one in Tulsa(and their drink prices didn’t reflect that thinking).
Beth’s parents and Janet made it to our house around 9:30 p.m. They unfortunately got stuck in a ton of traffic driving up which made a normal 7 hour drive, more like 8 and a half hours. Thursday morning we got up and had egg casserole. We made it with blue and gold sausage that I bought from someone at work whose daughter was selling it as a fundraiser. I had never heard of it until we moved to Tulsa, but it’s definitely the best sausage I’ve ever had. It comes directly from some farm in Oklahoma which probably means it’s a lot less processed than sausage you get at the store.
Beth and Carol(Beth’s Mom) with some help from Janet did pretty much all of the Thanksgiving cooking. And it was great! It was the first Thanksgiving in our new house and it was great because we got to sit at our new dining room table.
Thursday night we just relaxed and watched the Texas/Texas A&M football game. Beth went to Texas and Janet went to A&M so there was some sibling rivalry going on during the game. Okay, not really. The most rivalry was probably Beth wearing a Texas shirt and Janet wearing an A&M shirt. In fact, I’m not even sure how much of the game Janet even watched. But she and Carol kept us entertained with a rendition of “Cupid Shuffle” during the commercials.
Friday morning we got up and went to get our Christmas tree. We ended up going to the Owasso Christmas Tree Farm. I found it online and it looked like they had a bunch of trees to choose from. It took us about 25 minutes to get there from our house, but it was well worth it. They had many different trees and everyone working there was really helpful. We ended up getting a Fraser Fir tree that’s between 7 and 8 feet tall.
After getting the tree in the house and getting it on the stand, Stacy, Dale(Beth’s Dad) and I headed over to Baker Custom Golf so Dale and I could get fitted for golf clubs. Baker’s has pretty much anything golf related you could want and they’ve got an area of the store set up just for custom fitting golf clubs. After the golf thing we headed to dinner at Louie’s in Jenks, followed by bowling at Andy B’s.
Saturday morning, Dale and I headed to Norman for the OU/OSU football game while the girls stayed in Tulsa and went shopping. The OU/OSU game was a ton of fun, especially the outcome. It was about the only game I went to all season where I felt like I actually got my money’s worth. After the game, we headed back to Tulsa because my parents and little brother were coming over to have dinner with us that night. We just ordered Hideaway Pizza, made a salad, and Beth, Janet, and Stacy made cake balls for dessert. We had a good time hanging out and also watched the disappointing Arkansas/LSU game.
Yesterday, I took Stacy to the airport so she could fly to Florida and the rest of Beth’s family headed back to Houston. The rest of the day was spent being pretty lazy until about 3:30 when Beth and I ventured out into the cold, rainy weather. We ended up going by my parents new house and having dinner with them at the Full Moon Café. And that pretty much sums up the past week at the Wysocki house. We had a great Thanksgiving and can’t wait to head to Houston for Christmas.
