Last year Thanksgiving was good, but this year Thanksgiving was the best!
The boys changed the Turkey Bowl from tackle football to a more mild soccer (and this year the rats lost for the 1st time ever- boo, hiss- vipers). There was a great turnout, but not too great of weather and Wes and I couldn't stay long.
We headed to my amazing sister and brother-in-laws for brunch which was co-hosted by Jeff's mom. Delicious treats as usual...monkey bread, bacon, sausage. And some fun at the photo shoot parlor that Rebekah prepared for the day- what a great idea and the start of an annual tradition, I hope.
After that we raced home for a quick shower, wardrobe change, and gathering of our contribution to the nights festivities and then back over to C&Rs for a full on Thanksgiving feast! My parents were able to come, which I loved since it's so nice not having to decide where to go and to have us all together (minus my brother who was celebrating in Mexico...my pale skin is jealous).
I know I mentioned in my previous post that there was a ton of food, but I'm not sure you get the picture...I think Rebekah and I counted 3-4lb of meat per adult...3 turkeys and one ham...and don't even get me started on the appetizers, sides, and pie- oh my!
Below were the best "cousins" photos I could get...these boys are busy!
It was truly a lovely day and the fact that Wes was finally able to join us was icing on the cake (wait, was there cake?) You can see some adorable video clips on my Mom's blog.
What a blessing it is to truly enjoy your family and friends, I am one lucky girl.
(btw, we've really got to take a big family photo at these events...I always feel bad when I don't have a photo of everyone...we're a little Wesley-centric over here!)
