Thanksgiving 2012

Our Thanksgiving this year was a little non-traditional for us.  To begin with, we did not travel, instead we stayed here and after the weekend we had I do not think the boys will ever want to travel again.  It has been one constant playdate since Wednesday!  I think at one point on Wednesday I counted 14 kids in our yard and that did not include the boys and their two friends they had over that day.  Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, we spent the morning watching the parade and cooking.  Since we were at home I decided to make the morning a little special with some turkeys for our two turkeys.

Our original plan for Thanksgiving was just for the four of us to spend the day celebrating together.  Then Rylan's little friend Grant's mom asked us to join them for Thanksgiving.  Thinking she was just inviting us to be nice I really did not think too much about it until she called and asked us again.  So instead of spending the day with just us, we join their family for the day.  I think there was a total of 20 of us for dinner.  And trust me the boys were loving playing with all their friends!

They played football and even had a dance party...and yes, the shirts had to come off!

These boys!

Finally it was time to give thanks and enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with new friends.  It was perfect.

The kids had a blast and Kevin and I enjoyed getting to know new friends.  As we were leaving Abby sent us home with a Thanksgiving Blessing mix.  

This year was a little non-traditional for us but we were thankful to have sweet friends to spend this day with.  Happy Thanksgiving!  Wishing you many blessing throughout this upcoming holiday season.
