Thanksgiving

We started the week before Thanksgiving with lunch at both kids’ schools.

Lunch with Aedan…

This popped up on my Facebook memory feed. It’s from Aedan’s first Thanksgiving lunch at preschool, 4 years ago!

Lunch with Adelaide…

We picked Aedan up from school a little early the Friday before Thanksgiving, and headed up to East Texas to visit Jon’s parents. They live on a farm and the kids had a blast. Two of Jon’s sisters also came, so all the cousins got to play.

On Thanksgiving we hosted Jon’s parents and grandparents. It was the first time I was in charge of the whole meal instead of just a side dish/dessert. I made a HUGE grocery trip that Monday and actually managed to not forget anything. Adelaide started off in the cart, but I had to kick her out because we ran out of room!

I cooked ALL day on Wednesday. I think I was in the kitchen from 9am until 5pm. But I got everything prepared so that on Thursdays all I had to do was heat everything up (we got a smoked Turkey, which made things easy too!). Everything came out really well!

This is about how we all felt on Friday after Thanksgiving. Ha! We were thankful for a quiet weekend just hanging around the house.

I did a little Black Friday shopping online and we got the house decorated for Christmas!

I think that catches me up! The kids only have 2 more weeks of school until Christmas break so hopefully I can get all the present bought and wrapped before then!
