~Happy Thanksgiving

We had a Wonderful Thanksgiving with family at my sister Heidi's new home. Grandpa brought Airplanes & a Microscope for everyone to find interesting things and stick under to look at (we won't mention what they were :). We missed you Oregon family xo We ate, watched movies, played with cousins and dogs, made christmas crafts, chatted, played inside & outside with the fun cozy weather! We had the BEST DEEP FRIED TURKEY, stuffing mashed potatoes & gravy, yummy punch, the famous cheeseball, cranberry jello, Hawaiian rolls, succotash & yams. The pies...oh my...pumpkin, pecan, apple & chocolate!!! We had great servers who took our pie orders!Thanks family for doing it all and putting up with me and my hurt rib!?. My sweet girls kept taking secret pictures of me in pain :( Love the CHRISTMAS LIGHTS already up Shawn! It was funny when leaving and he said "Merry Christmas"... is it that time already? :)

Mmm, I love pecan pie! I'm the only one in our house who likes it, so I don't get to make it. (Because I don't want to eat it all myself. Well, I DO want to, but you know.) Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving!

Cute hair!
