What We Did: Thanksgiving Edition

What a busy, fun filled week with family! The week started off with a mad rush to clean up the house because it was a disaster. Busy life = messy house.

I finally got my last gallery wall done in the family room. I’ve had all the pieces sitting here for about a month but just haven’t had a minute to actually get it all put together. It turned out better than I expected given that I did it in 15 minutes with only one try.

You know what rocks? Realizing you have a tween old enough to help cook for Thanksgiving! Maia was put in charge of the Pumpkin Crescent Rolls and she did a great job. We made 8 batches and she did more than half of them.

What isn’t easy is keeping the teen boy out of the kitchen so those Pumpkin Crescent Rolls actually would make it until Thanksgiving dinner!

Getting ready to host Thanksgiving takes a lot of work. But we pulled it off. Just in time too because our first guests rang the doorbell not even a minute after I took these pictures!

We had such a great time with our family. Tons of food, tons of laughter, tons of football, and tons of pie!

After dinner was over we tried to get some family pictures. It did not go well. Now, remember we had about 20 people present. Clearly not all 20 people got the memo about the family pictures happening.

I just don’t know what to do with these people. We ended up with a ton of leftovers this year so it was a weekend full of food. I’m a little afraid that my real people pants won’t fit this week. But man, it was so delicious.

The rest of the weekend was spent watching college football, putting up Christmas decorations, and then watching NFL football. Exactly how I like it.

I’m still only half done with the Christmas decorations….and that might be a bit of a stretch. But I’ll get it done soon. It was a great Thanksgiving and I’m super sad that we’re back to real life now. I’m already counting down the days until Christmas break!
