We landed at home from Florida
and headed straight for my In-laws to join the rest of Scott's siblings for Thanksgiving! We packed a lot into 2 1/2 days. A whole lot of eating, playing with cousins, games, more eating and some napping too ;)!
We contributed 2 pies - chocolate pudding pie and Scott's 4-H prize winning Chocolate chunk pecan pie (heaven in a pie ;) other than that my Mother-in-Law and Sister-in-law Raquel did all the cooking. It was delicious and the table was beautiful! Scott's 96 year old Grandma Olive was able to join us so we had 4 generations and 17 people around the table.
Some of us missed dinner because a nap called our name. She feasted on a peanut butter sandwich when she woke up which is just what she would want to feast on!
We spent the rest of the day playing games. We played this one
, this one
and this one
. We love playing games! The kids enjoyed playing in the basement and a football game broke out after our turkey supper, I regretted participating about one run in but we had fun ;)!
Nana got all the kids pajamas...and they had cereal for Thanksgiving supper which was very exciting!
The next morning we planned to take updated family photos since 3 new grandchildren had been added since our last one! It was cold, windy and a lot of littles but we got some great ones!
Warming up in the car before we headed to see Santa at Bass Pro Shop!
They have so many fun activities for the kids to play with while we waited for our time slot.
...and as expected Lucy did not enjoy the Jolly Man! But I love pictures like this - sweet girl!
We stopped at Zombie Burger
before heading home for naps and games.
Then Nana and Papa took the biggest 5 on the Polar Express. They all had fun visiting the North Pole and Vera made sure to tell Santa they saw each other earlier that day ;)!
We had a great time with family and just like that it was time for everyone to head out the next day...we spent the rest of the weekend decorating for Christmas and lounging around catching up on Christmas movies and laundry!
And just like that we are in full-on Christmas mode around here! Happy Thanksgiving 2016!
Come back tomorrow -- because it's December 1st and we are kicking off December with a GIVEAWAY!!!! :)
