Happy Belated Turkey Day

I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!!!

We had a wonderful day. I tried to get over here, but, I think I was tied to the kitchen! It did not help that I burned the first three loaves of bread that I baked, so I had to bake more:)

But I made pumpkin pies (which we didn't even touch), mashed potatoes, chicken dressing and 3 loaves of bread. And we deep fryed two 20 lb turkeys. Mom brought everything else and my grandmother brought pies. Todd's mom brought munchies and another pie.

Then Todd's mom brought a gingerbread man cookie kit that you decorate. Which was a blast.

Today, I did not go shopping. Rather the kids and I went to see blind side - it is an AWESOME movie. Although, if you have sympathetic tear ducts like myself - take some kleenex. The kids loved it and I loved it.
I'm off work this entire week coming up. So hopefully lots of decorating and crafting will get done, but we will see. Only two weeks until we head to Columbus for Jessie and Tyler to show their calves - yikes!!!!!!
Later everyone,

We did that same kit with the kids last year, and they LOVED it! of course, we had more kids than you, and, yes, we ended up COUNTING all those little candies, so each child had the same amount....this year, I'm going to boost it with a bag of skittles or m&m's so we wont have to count...tee hee

glad your day was filled with family, the most important ingredient!

Just bought that same kit from Jo-Ann's. I'm hoping it is easier than the gingerbread house!
