Thanksgiving in Portland

It is was so great to spend Thanksgiving with family.  When planning the meal, we tried to split it in half but of course Jenny made everything from scratch even down to the stuffing and cranberry sauce. It was truly mouth watering.  We did a few of my traditions like Angry Birds with water balloons and blow hockey.

Fleetwood Mac Concert

Fleetwood Mac Concert on November 20th at the Tacoma Dome

I have wanted to see Fleetwood Mac for forever.  I had the VHS of their Reunion concert back from 1997.  I could hardly believe I was getting to see them live.  The concert was amazing.  Christine McVie is my favorite.  Silky voice and not wanting to be in the spotlight.  Lindsey Buckingham did not disappoint with rapid guitar playing; what talent!  Stevie Nicks did spins and kicks in special shawls and explained the origins of her songs.   Mick Fleetwood is a little crazy and did a 10 minute drum solo.  And Christine's ex, stayed in the shadows.  I was truly in heaven.  Perfect concert with my hubby.   He played nothing but Fleetwood Mac songs for a month after the concert and we would relive it.  HEAVEN!
