Turkey, Trimmings and Time with Family

We had a great Thanksgiving with family this year! We hosted thanksgiving at our house on thursday, complete with my parents, my sister and her family, my cousin, my grandpa and my best friend and her new family.
We had way too much food as usual- 2 turkeys (cajun fried) and ham, au gratin potatoes, mashed taters, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, brocoli rice casserole, rolls, cranberry relish, gravy, cornbread dressing, then cherry cobbler, pumpkin and pecan pies and brownies and cookies.

The kids had a lot of fun playing- Will and Mikey fought over the train!

After turkey day, my sisters and mom and I headed to conquer black Friday. We met at 5am at target and then hit the mall, old navy and more. We had a lot of fun and surprisingly the crowds were not too bad.

On Saturday, we headed up north to Oklahoma to do thanksgiving with Alan's family on Saturday. Will loves playing outside and going down the slide out there.

Again, way too much yummy food! We had so many homemade pies. We enjoyed great time with family and friends again and returned home on Sunday. Will learned many new words this weekend too- he said "Michael", his cousin's name and also said "I sit down" and "chips", well his version is 'bips' and he wanted 'bips' for breakfast today. uh oh, that was a no! He really is starting to talk more and add more words.

Will really enjoyed seeing both sets of grandparents and all the aunts and uncles this weekend. Now we have to get ready for our big 10 day trip to disney. we leave in 10 short days. time to start packing! We are very thankful for our family and our wonderful son. We are so blessed for our great family, home and health.
