Has everyone come out of their turkey comas yet? On Sunday night as Bobby was eating more leftovers, I told him I just couldn’t do it, and I had waffles for dinner instead. We did have a great few days though, and three different Thanksgivings!
Thursday morning we anxiously awaited the arrival of my parents and my sister.
Emma Kate was one happy little pigtail-ed girl when they finally got to the house!
We cooked and played
Emma Kate was being a serious show off with everyone paying her so much attention. She kept running for toy to toy making sure everyone was watching her.
We of course watched the parade.
Lunch was great, and I was pretty proud of three new recipes I used, and also of my table setting I created. Also, I fail at blogging and have no food pictures! Bobby informed me he posted one on Instagram which made me laugh because he hasn’t used Instagram in months, but apparently the food was deserving of a post.
After lunch, we had a pretty serious game of cornhole going. I mean, just look at the concentration in my moms eyes.
My dad was pretty good at it, much to Bobby’s dismay.
Emma Kate loved chasing the bean bags and picking them up and running back and forth.
Everyone napped except for me, and we watched football all afternoon and capped off the night watching a couple of FRIENDS Thanksgiving episodes, which are the best. Friday morning, my mom, dad, sister and I hit up our local outdoor mall. Dad and I ended up just wandering around and sitting on benches while my mom and sister shopped, but it was a pretty day so we didn’t mind.
Friday at lunch we all headed to Bobby’s cousins house for another Thanksgiving lunch. More turkey was consumed.
Unfortunately, after lunch my family packed up and headed home. Bobby and I spent the rest of Friday and Saturday just hanging out with Emma Kate, eating leftovers, and watching college football. Oh, and playing baseball with a pumpkin and a machete. What? You don’t do this? I think I got a couple of pretty good action shots.
Saturday night we had a Friendsgiving with a bunch of friends from our lifegroup at church. More turkey was consumed, and more football was watched.
Sunday was church and more football (I am detecting a pattern here) and sadly our holiday weekend came to an end. I hope you had a great one like I did and got to hang out with friends and family! Happy Thanksgiving!
