A very Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a great Thanksgiving with lots of family, lots of great food, a festive parade, and unbelievably sunny and mild weather! 

We woke up nice and early at Ommy and Poppy's and geared up for the parade.  Adam was very excited (or maybe I was the one that was excited and it just rubbed off on him).  It was great getting to share this with my little turkey.  The marching bands always caught his attention and he was introduced to Spiderman!  All in all, it was a great parade and I still plan on running that thing some day.

We spent a good part of the day making turkeys (Andy did his on the smoker, mine was nice and cozy in the oven), setting the tables, and watching a little football.

Family began showing up around 5:00 and we then spent the rest of the evening chatting, eating, drinking, and watching the cousins play.  We even had a turkey carving demonstration for Drew...and then for me. 

It was the perfect Thanksgiving (except for the fact that my dad was sick and couldn't come) and we are so thankful and blessed to be able to enjoy such a feast with such a wonderful family (whom we apparently preferred to spend time with than to bother taking pictures of...oops!)
