Thanksgiving 2008

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Aaron was able to get the day before Thanksgiving off so we had a full day of cooking before the holiday and it turned out wonderful! We even started our turkey in our roaster/slow cooker Wed. night so we didn't have hardly any cooking to do on Thanksgiving day. What a great way to cook for the holiday!

We started the holiday watching a little of the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and it is so much fun to watch it through the eyes of our children ~ they had a blast! We taped it so that we could watch the rest of the parade later in the day.

After breakfast we headed off to the stores. We have never done this before on the holiday and it was so much fun! We went to the local stores near us, not the mall and we were so surprised it wasn't crowded. The boys were wiggling with excitement and it was such a pleasure to see their delight and awe of all the the holiday decorations. Several of the people in the store just stopped and watched our boys looking at the light display and having such fun. All of us adults had goofy smiles on after that. Who wouldn't?

We came home and had a wonderful Turkey dinner and just a really great family time. We finished watching the parade, played board games and ended the day with scrumptious pumpkin pie and a movie. I am so very grateful for all the Lord has blessed us with.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
