The last few years each Thanksgiving has been so different, either with my huge family, on our own, or with Tyson's extended family. This year we opted for a simpler day and planned to spend the day with our friends, the Jenkins family. Tyson of course still had to work so we planned to eat at noon so that he wouldn't miss out.
Since we were all so on top of things and baked like crazy on Wednesday, we were able to relax a bit on Thursday morning and the kids made some turkey hats.
They were very excited about them, and Charlotte was very excited about the glue stick. Kinda made her mad when I took it away.
They sure turned out cute though!
While we were getting the final items ready for dinner the kids disappeared. I found them in the crib playing with the light-up toy. Good thing the baby was asleep in another room.
This is an AFTER dinner shot. I had to look twice to be sure because there is an awful lot of goodness still on that table. It was delicious! Plus we had 8 different pies for 6 adults and 3 small children.
Tyson had to go right to work after dinner, but the girls and I stayed to play, go for a walk, and then the grown-ups played a few games. It was a really great low-key way to spend such a great holiday!
