And now comes december

Thanksgiving has come and gone.  And scarier than that, is that Christmas is literally just around the corner!!  How is this even possible?? Old people are right when they say it comes quicker every year … it does!  Does that mean I’m old?! Don’t answer.

We had a good Thanksgiving.

I got to meet this cute little Indian at his class’ Thanksgiving Lunch.

They made turkey shirts in class with their feet!

The Foot Turkey

We made Turkey Cookies at home.


Spent time with family.

Reading with Mama Lou

We had some good conversations, my favorite one of the day is here.

And we attempted to get just one cute, co-operating picture of the kids in the Turkey Shirts.

My little turkeys


The latter did not happen.

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving.

Conversations … thanksgiving edition

November 29, 2009 at 9:07 pm (Conversations with a 4 year old, Thanksgiving)

This conversation comes courtesy of my husband’s family.  We spent Thanksgiving evening at his Aunt’s house.   I lose track after ‘1st cousins’.  Is it 2nd cousins, 3rd cousins, cousins once removed … I don’t have a clue! This story however is about one of those 2nd, 3rd, or once removed cousins!!  But for simplicity sake we’ll say Evan was playing a video game with one of his “cousins” (aka “The 6 year old”) as my husband looked on.

6 year old: Evan would you like me to help you get the car off the road so you can race again?

Evan: Sure.

Husband: Thank you for helping Evan, that was very nice of you.

6 year old: You’re welcome.  Would you please be sure to tell my Mom and Dad …

My husband was waiting for the rest of the sentence.  It didn’t happen.  He just wanted my husband to be sure & tell his Mom & Dad that he was being nice!!

Cracked us up!!

Apparently he gets in trouble alot so he makes sure his parents hear anything good that they can!!  And I think he’s a future salesman!

So, any funny Thanksgiving Conversations at your family gathering??

The one about thanksgiving

December 23, 2008 at 11:39 pm (family, Thanksgiving)

I figured I should go ahead and check this one off my To-Do List before Christmas Eve gets here – which is in just 4 days!!!  Where has the time gone?!?

We did the usual split – lunch for my family and dinner at Pep’s.  It makes for a rushed day, but I’m happy that we both can spend time with each of our families as opposed to deciding who we fly to this year.  We definitely eat alot though that’s for sure!  My family does the same thing every year with maybe one or two additions usually brought by Staci or my brother.  In fact, I can go ahead and say that next year we’ll have a fried Turkey, Ham, the BEST broccoli casserole you’ve EVER had, the BEST sweet potato casserole (no marshmallows!!), & deviled eggs … plus those “additions”.  But I LOVE everything about that dinner – in fact it’s so yummy that we’ll have the same thing for Christmas this year and next year, and the year after that, and the one after that …

Here’s a few pictures from the day:





Well, we had more fun than just that but WordPress is super duper slow tonight … I think I’ll just move onto Christmas!
