I like for the kids to do their "hand turkeys", because I always loved doing them, their little hands grow so fast! Blake also did Thanksgiving feathers at school, telling what he was most thankful for!
We celebrate Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday with the family because everyone is off from work and we can all be together. Diana and Danny came over and played with the kids, Taylor got to play pretend store with Aunt Sissy, while Blake got to show Uncle Danny games on his Nintendo DS. They so love to just play and I am sooo happy that Aunt Sissy and Uncle Danny will "just play"! (I have a really hard time slowing down enough to do that...I so need to work on that!)
We made a very traditional dinner this year. We had our specially brined turkey that turned out wonderfully, Billy's cornbread stuffing, Diana's sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, and warm rolls from Bob Evans! This was the first year that I didn't make the desserts from scratch, but Costco's pumpkin pie and cheesecake was delicious! Diana brought her famous "no bake cookies" and tons of other yummies. Aunt Susie brought cookies, so we obviously had more than enough food! (i cannot believe that i didn't take pictures!)
After eating, the tryptophan kicked in and we all got lazy. So lazy, in fact, that I don't remember the rest of the night! lol! We did squeeze in some wii and a game of Headbandz...both always fun!
