ok...so i'm a week late.:)but it was still happy.
so glad my parents could visit.
we made sure to get lots of books poppy would enjoy reading while we were at the library.
and lots of root beer for his speciality dessert too.
aubrey actually preferred reading to maggie.
when she wasn't "run run running as fast as you can" with mimi.
we spent the morning watching the parade and the dog show.
we still keep waiting for our beloved golden retrievers to win!!:)
mancala championship was in full swing.
looks like poppy might be the only one paying attention.
things sure were smelling good in the kitchen.
aubrey's job this year was the rolls.
janey was in charge of mashed potatoes and brining the turkey.
riley made the cranberry compote. (the night before and i missed her picture!)
our weather was so beautiful we even managed to squeeze in some outside play too.
1:00...it's go time! and he did it!
and no that's not sparkling apple cider in his glass!!:)
no fancy serving bowls here.
we believe in simple.:)
mashed potatoes & gravy
creamed peas and onions
that was a new one this year and only the guys ate it!
and pumkpin pie and fresh whipped cream for dessert
janey read the blessing the girls wrote.
glary photo that happens when you get sick of red curtians and rip them down in a frenzy without anything to replace them.:)
dancing after the big feast to one of mimi's favorites off her ever popular mix cd's.
later we were looking for the ipad.
guess who had it?
the perfect way to work off all that goodness.
then about 4:00 the house looked like this.
but that's a whole other post.:)
hope you thanksgiving was simple and filled with thanks and giving,
