Thanksgiving was a perfect day! I started off the morning by making chocolate waffles with my sister in-law Lisa(our new Thanksgiving morn. tradition while the guys were playing football) and my friend Emily and all of our kids (6total). It was quite delicious, complete with whip cream on top (we did have some fruit too to balance things out, hehe)
Then off to Josh's mom and dad's for a Thanksgiving feast!
We had a lot of fun, the kids ran wild while the adults prepared the food. We did take a few moments to play this:
You get four people inside this stretchy material...
you pulllllll back....two people(across frome eachother, run and exchange places, pullllling back again...
sling shotting the other two across...fun fun fun...we even took riley and braden in-holding them-and went a little slower of course, they had blast!
The funny part is usually when someone gets tripped up on their own feet from running so fast and spinning around, they fall, taking the rest of the people down with them...hehe i promise it's funny...happy to report no blood or broken bones!
This is the dutch oven KING....seriously. Josh's dad has countless dutch ovens and the knowledge to use them. He cooked the turkey in this one and it was D.LICIOUS
A little photo op before we left home
This is where the "and things" comes in on my title of this post:
I found a new hair blog and have been doing riley's hair all sorts of crazy lately...not saying they are that cute, mostly like "woah" but some cute...im stretching my french braiding fingers so to speak...
Braden's first icecream cone of his very own
Our little man before church on sunday
Riley working on her work book...she has been SO into writing her letters, she can do a capital A,R,H,lowercase i and j, T,L,C,O,P,E,andY im so proud of her!
And braden using a fork...i have a video clip but it was lost in a drastic memory card download fiasco.
He speared the hotdog with his fork then took it off with his other hand and ate it...he's gettin' there!
Hope everyone was able to find a good deal or two on black friday!
