I just realized that I have no photos of food on this Thanksgiving post. Food's important, but not the most important thing on Thanksgiving. I'd be happy eating pizza on Thanksgiving if I could be surrounded by friends and family on a four-day weekend. Although I might have to make some stuffing because that's my favorite part of the dinner and the only time I eat it during the year.
Ya, pizza and stuffing. With pumpkin pie for dessert. Talk about a carb overload.
My mom had the tables in the basement decked out beautifully. I love having fancy dinners on pretty dishes with flowers on the table.
The kids had a ball with my grandpa (my mother's dad). He's such a goofball around the kids -- they love being silly with him.
Of course, the after-dinner lazy spells on the couch. (Actually we were there for a week and I'm not sure what night this was. It could have been any of them.) I don't usually take pictures of my kids' toys, but I was playing with the lens on my sister's new camera.
There was lots of bundling up, blizzards, snow drifts, and daytime highs of 8. It was fantastic. (More on that later.)
My parents have this mini pool table that's under a foot tall that the kids liked to play with. I love Carter's face in these pics.
Playing on grandma's bed.
Classic photo. Sophie's wild hair, Ivy without pants (again), and Carter with his finger up his nose. Love it.
I got this for my mom a long time ago and it hangs in her kitchen. So true. Thanks for a great Thanksgiving week mom and dad!
