Happy Thanksgiving!

30 Nov

We had a great Thanksgiving but somehow forget to take some pictures! We started the day off with the neighborhood Turkey Bowl. Luckily, Kerry did not get hurt this year.


Then it was home for family, food, and fun 🙂 All the food turned out really well and it was nice to catch up with family. I think the highlight for Miss H was the snowflake book that Mom brought her. At first, it took two adults to figure out how to fold the paper but once we got that down, we were making good snowflakes. Miss H is really good with the scissors so she was a pro at cutting out the shapes. We are now decorating the windows of the house with her creations.


Our Thanksgiving traditions includes heading to the mall on Black Friday. We arrived just before 9am and were surprised at the lack of people. Kerry and Miss H joined us and we were even more surprised to see  no line for Santa. Well, the camera equipment was not working but they let us use our phone.

Miss H liked the snow in the ice castle.


But, was not such a fan of Santa at first.


He finally got her interested in talking to him and we got a cute picture.


Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving! (a few days late….)

27 Nov

I am a few days late in posting my happy Thanksgiving wishes to everyone! Hope you all had a great day and great food with family and friends.

We started off the day with a friendly neighborhood football game. It is the adults against the kids and it did get pretty competitive. Miss H and I hung out on the sidelines while Kerry took to the field. The adults won this year and everyone had a great time. Kerry managed to ‘tweak’ his knee but he is no longer limping around.

We had a great meal with Ron, Mom, George and Jan. We made everyone’s favorite side dishes and even with all the options, Miss H opted for cereal. We all lined up for a group photo but the only person who seems to be consistently smiling with their eyes open in Miss H. We will have to try again next year.

Mom and I hit the Black Friday sales and we must of hit the mid-morning lull because things were not so crazy. We were home in time for a lunch of leftovers. Kerry got the lights onto the house and Miss H loves all the colors. Kerry loves that they are controlled by remote.

The rest of the weekend was filled with play dates and holiday decorating! And, we have added Elf of the Shelf.
