2016 thanksgiving highlights

thanksgiving2016-0This Thanksgiving was a bunch of firsts for us – it was the first time we had thanksgiving at home, just the 4 of us… which meant it was also the first time I made Thanksgiving dinner! It snowed that weekend so we got to go out and build our first snowman of the year too. The kids had so much fun playing in the snow, I wish winter could be as wonderful and mild as that day was.

For our Thanksgiving dinner we picked up a 9lbs turkey which I dry brined the night before, and we made it nice and easy with mashed potatoes, gravy, slow cooked carrots and green beans. Everything turned out perfectly!

Here are a few of my favourite pics from our little Thanksgiving day. ♥

weekly highlights

Why is it short weeks always feel the longest? All 4 of us are ready for the weekend!

Last weekend was Thanksgiving, and we spent it with family. We drove up on Saturday morning and the weather was amazing… the kids played outside – Cordelia completely enamored with her little cousin Liam, Bobby roasted hot dogs with his Papa, and we went for a walk on the beach. Cordelia instantly got her hands dirty and had fun digging in the sand and splashing in the water a bit. Bobby found some fresh water clam shells and was extremely excited. The company was wonderful, the food was amazing… it was a great weekend. Bobby also found the ‘biggest leaf ever’ and the ‘biggest pumpkin ever’ and wanted his picture taken with both. I love seeing him get excited about stuff like that. ♥ Now to spend a couple days at home in our jammies and get ready for next week. Have a great weekend!thanksgiving16thanksgiving17thanksgiving18thanksgiving19thanksgiving20thanksgiving21thanksgiving1thanksgiving15thanksgiving1cthanksgiving10thanksgiving1bthanksgiving4thanksgiving3thanksgiving1dthanksgiving5thanksgiving6thanksgiving7thanksgiving8thanksgiving9thanksgiving1ethanksgiving22thanksgiving13thanksgiving14thanksgiving11bthanksgiving11thanksgiving12thanksgiving2thanksgiving23
