We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at our home this year. We were so happy that the weather was nice since we had quite a group (over thirty) for dinner. We had my parents, Susan's family and our family. It was a lovely day and I felt blessed that we were able to eat all together outside. The kids had fun playing on the teeter totter, making pinecone turkeys and gingerbread cookies while the big kids enjoyed playing Phase Ten, watching football and looking at the black Friday ads. Some of the kids stayed until midnight and then went shopping to get all the great Christmas sale deals. The next day we put up the Christmas decorations and it feels so good to get ready for Christmas. I've already started wrapping presents so I will be prepared early this year! We are planning to go to SRP's annual Christmas family party this Saturday with the grandkids. Santa comes in a helicopter and the kids always enjoy the day. Let me know it you want to go. I'm looking forward to spending another day with the kids!
