Unplugging for Thanksgiving…

What a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend! The weather was so beautiful, in the 70′s and sunny, that we just took the time off as a family to unplug and really spend some quality time together. This meant lots of outdoor play, which of course meant lots of pictures!

We had scooter time…


Ben got a new toy that couldn’t wait until Christmas…

Because yes, I was the crazy woman at Toys R Us at 5am for Black Friday sales. But look at him, he loves it…

Chloe got to show Madeline exactly how to jump into a leaf pile…

Madeline caught on pretty quick…

We found teeny tiny favorite leaves…

There was LOTS and LOTS of Daddy play time, their favorite…

And almost every time I picked up my camera and pointed it at Ben, he would make this face…

I think he’s onto me.

So outside of the fact that we didn’t actually have a turkey on Thanksgiving (you mean they need to defrost for MORE than 2 days?! Yeah – try pulling out frozen giblets!). We just pretended we were vegetarians for the day, loaded up on boat loads of side dishes, and had a fantastic weekend!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…

Happy Sewing!

    Incredible pictures! Looks like Ben has perfected his smolder. We ate chicken on Thanksgiving because we decided turkey is for turkeys! The sides are the best part anyway! Glad you had a great day!

    LOVE these pictures!! I cooked our turkey yesterday and had a “fun” time pulling out frozen giblets too. haha. Wish I could buy a turkey without the giblets and neck- one that’s ready to go.

    We ha a 14 or 16 pound turkey (apparently was too smallaccording to my uncle. Last year the turkey was only 11 pounds) but we had to take it out Monday mid AM to make sure was thawed by Thursday.
