Thanksgiving Blessings

We've had a fun week!  After Mommy had her night out to see New Moon on Monday, and a happy hour with co-workers on Tuesday, it was all family, all the time!  My parents drove up from KC to share in the Thanksgiving dinner with Scott's family (mom's side.)  As an added bonus, we were also able to spend part of Thanksgiving evening with the Goers' family (Scott's dad's side), too.  Needless to say, we were all full and wiped out by bedtime.  It's such a blessing to be able to spend both Thanksgiving and Christmas with my parents this year...that hasn't happened in a really long time - 15 years maybe??

We also managed to take our family picture for the Christmas card - of course it was FREEZING when we took it, so we weren't able to spend too long to get that "perfect" shot...but we're happy with the final results.

Here are a few pictures from the past few days:

Scott and I just finished putting up the tree...the lights, cranberry garland and tree skirt are in place, so tomorrow is all about the ornaments.  Although this may be a year where we put out only the soft ornaments, or maybe just the top of the tree will be decorated...Ava does love to play with things that she shouldn't!

We have just a few more gifts to pick up, and then the wrapping fun can begin.  This truly is the best time of the year...!

I think we'll be leaving the breakable ornaments off the tree this year too. :) That's so great that you will get to see your parents so much this holiday season!
