Thanksgiving 2014 Wrap Up

Thanksgiving 2014 is in the books!  It was a very relaxing week of fun.  The kids were off of school all week so we enjoyed doing pretty much nothing most days.  It was awesome!!  My grandmother and Aunt Lisa came into town for Thursday so we hosted a pre Thanksgiving get together of appetizers and games.  It was fun to get to hang out.  We played "Happy Family" and several other games.  It was great to see GG!!
 Thursday morning was pretty low key.  We slept in and then watched some of the Macy's Thanksgiving parade.
 We then headed over to Matt's parent's house for the Morris family Thanksgiving.  There were about 35 people there so it was crazy and fun.  We enjoyed a big lunch of all the traditional foods!
 Aunt Teri always has crazy props for pictures after lunch.  I was laughing at the fact that I have had to do this for the past 19 years every time we have gone to Thanksgiving with the Morris'.

 We played a huge game of "Happy Family" with 30 people.  It was lots of fun.  Then we headed over to my parent's house for dinner.  Kate loved getting snuggles from GG.
 My mom always sets the prettiest tables!  They are amazing!  She made these cute tree ornaments with our names on them.  The kids made turkeys for each spot.

 There was a lively kids table.  The food was amazing as always.  I like that we do different side dishes each year.  We had asparagus, cranberry & apple casserole and several other new dishes.  It was wonderful!

 The kids finished up the night with new pjs from Granna and Grandaddy!  They were so cute!  It was such a fun day.  We were surrounded by our blessings and had so much to be thankful for.
 Just a side note Ben's glasses broke at dinner.  He looked so silly with them taped back together!
