We had a lovely Thanksgiving. It was so nice to have my mom and dad here. Jon's mom and aunt also made it up. His brother Brad and his family came over, and I had my sweet neighbor and her husband come as well.

Sweet Ashley.
Sorry about the fuzzy shot.

Grandma Patty did Haley's hair. looks pretty cute to me.
She didn't keep it in for long though.
Aunt Linda is the redhead in the background on the right.
Next to her is Laura, Brad's wife, then Brad and Patty (Jon's mom).

My mom and dad.

Get the food on!

Waiting patiently.....

Julia (niece), Haley, Alicia (niece), Patty, my dad, and Laura(sister in law)

Two grandma's and my boys!

My nieces again; Linda; my neighbor, Barbara and her husband Gordon; my dad and Haley.
Jon did a great job on the turkey. It was SO good.
We need a new rotisserie though.
I think this was the last year for our current model.
Everything else was so good too. It was a great community effort.
Yes, I did hit the stores the day after. I wasn't up and out early though. No Way!! Of course, I didn't get everything I wanted too, but I scored a few good deals. I got home in plenty of time to get the tree up and haul out all the decorations. I am well on my way to going completely over the top on my decorations. I'll post pics of that soon!
Hope you all are having a beautiful weekend!

Wow, you had a full house for the holiday! It's always fun with more people (to help cook and help clean up afterwards)! And you went shopping the next day - you've got some energy, girl! Cute pictures of your kids!

You didn't go out early? I am shocked! It is so much fun getting up at 4am and rubbing shoulders with 1000s of other bargaining strangers. I do it every year! :) You did have a full house on Thanksgiving! I love holidays filled with family and friends.

Mikki, where's my comment? Did I talk to you in my head again?
It looks like you had a wonderful Tday surrounded by good people.

I'm ready to see your tree pictures. I can't imagine you could possibly be "over the top" with tree decorating, right? The more the merrier... (until it's time to take it down and I'm already dreading that).
