Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from our family.

We have so much to be thankful for!
We had a nice morning at home. Daddy cooked breakfast and we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade together. The boys loved watching the parade and were busy dancing and singing throughout. Then we headed to Aunt Von's house for Thanksgiving lunch. Everything was so yummy!

The boys love Sarah and had fun playing with Emme too. Drake and Parker played together too, it's cute to see them together in their matching turkey outfits.

After lunch we headed to Mimi's house for dessert and games.

Our first game was the turkey feather hunt. Tom turkey lost feathers all over Mimi's yard and they had to be found. The competition was fierce. Uncle Jeff was running and Baylor tried to zoom ahead of him. The prize table had items worth fighting for.

Then we had the turkey toss. After a fierce competition Andy and Joe tied in a sudden death final round.

Our final game was Thanksgiving Jingo. I took Parker and Drake to look at the Santa village during Jingo and they loved seeing everything. Parker was showing Drake Santa. We also sang Christmas carols to ring in the Holiday season.

Then we had dessert! We had butterscotch pie, pumpkin pie, banana cream pie, cupcakes from the Cakehole, and cookies from the Cookie Closet. We were all ready for a nap after all the food and sweets. We had a great day with our family!

"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever"

Psalm 107:1
