We had a blast.
I've decided that Thanksgiving HAS to be my favorite holiday. I mean - a holiday based totally on creating the perfect family meal/gathering - what is not to love??? I love it so much that I usually make my own 2 weeks before the big day...just to get the stomach nice and coated in preparation for the actual event. I also decided to send out a "Thankful" card. We had a blast in the 15 minutes we spent taking pictures...Indy has been warned from here on out...any funny faces given shall be used in future cards....and Ella is just to young to know or care, but man I LOVE that rascal face she makes!
|I must thank my friend Kris - who was kind enough to run over and snap the above pics for us - she did a great job!|
|We headed over to Henderson to be with Matt's sister (and family) for the Thanksgiving Holiday.|
|Here we have a wonderful picture of our hostess for the weekend. She thought of everything...and had everything planned down to the last minute details...and my children are in love with her pantry.|
|Not quite sure how we all would've survived without the pool and the CA-juzzi.|
|We had photo shoots and face masks going all day long.|
|Down by the banks of the hanky panky, lived a bull-frog...|
|And then we had the TURKEY TROT OLYMPICS. I must apologize up front for the somewhat haggard poor images...between photographing, videographing, instruction-giving, and cheating-inspecting it was rough going! (Oh and the doubled-over-laughing too!)|
|A proper stretch is a must.|
|The first heat consisted of backwards walking, with arms like a soldier, then hip circles, then a gobble walk, 3 tuck jumps, sprint, and skip back to your teammates. Exchange turkey hat with next team member.|
|Wheelbarrow races, followed by Uncle Mike's "Doing-doing" turkey walk.|
We are beyond grateful for all that we have been blessed with and are ready for the Christmas Season!
