We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! It started Wednesday afternoon with myself and the kids taking late afternoon naps! It was wonderful!! I was also able to get my broccoli and cheese casserole ready for Thursday. Once Chris got home and we had dinner, everyone went down pretty easy again for the night. Chris and I were even able to relax on the couch with a bottle of wine and watch the movie Savages. It was….. interesting! ha!
Thursday morning, we got moving bright and early to start heading to all the places that we needed to visit. First on the list was Nana and Papa’s house for brunch. Nana put together a yummy brunch and it was great to see everyone!
The kiddos enjoyed getting to run around outside and play! The weather was gorgeous!!!
Paxton and Ethan always love getting to play together.
Sweet boy looked precious in his turkey outfit!
After Nana and Papa’s, it was time to stop by the Hunt house. We visited with Ricky, Sally, and Lynsey for a little while before heading to Grams.
Of course my child did this… why wouldn’t he??!
He’s SO ready for a big hunt with Uncle RP!
Our final stop of the day was Gram’s house. Grams always cooks the traditional turkey, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin pie! ALWAYS look forward to it!!
Gray and Uncle Joe had a ball playing outside!
Guess who likes pecan pie??!! My little southern boy!
hula hooping with uncle joe!
Thursday night, Grams convinced me to go Black Friday shopping! She wanted to go to Target for a few things. So… there we were at 8pm standing in line for the 9pm opening. Luckily, the weather was still nice outside and the line wasn’t awful at all! We got in right at 9 and everything moved extremely smoothly. We got the items that we wanted (yes, I gave in and decided to purchase a few “needed” items too!) ;) and were out in 20 min! It took longer to get coffee from Starbucks than it did to comb the store and checkout! It was fun to be able to spend the time with Grams though. We had a wonderful time!!
Friday we ran a few errands and then called it a weekend. Unfortunately all the kiddos were coming down with sinus garbage and were NOT feeling well! So.. we stayed in for the rest of the weekend. Luckily I picked up Brave and Madagascar 3 from Target Thursday night. So we watched them OVER and OVER!
The boys ended up staying home from school on Monday.. not to mention that Gray was up at 3AM! After a quick trip to the doctor to rule out an ear infection, we were holed up inside again. Today seems to have everyone mending their runny noses. Thank Goodness!!!
We’re spending the rest of this week getting all ready for Christmas. Daddy goes back out of town for 2 weeks, later this week. So we’re trying to get everything around the house ready for Christmas. Busy, busy week!!
