All the kids were there with their families, and it was pretty fun to see her friends and school.
Lexi taking a break from doing Sareny's hair (and makup! She begged, and Lexi or maybe Hillari, caved) and helping the kids make crafts of turkeys and tee pees for decoration.
Jeff making his yummy deep fried turkey.
Carving the yummy deep fried turkey. We all kept snitching tastes, at the peril of losing a finger when he threatened us.
The cooks take a break to pose.
We had such a delicious dinner we couldn't eat dessert, so we went for a nice walk around the lake near Hillari's house. It was so pretty at night, and we figured we walked off enough that we could have pie when we got home. Then we pored over the newspaper deciding where we were going to head to first for Black Friday, which is a tradition when we go to Hill and Keith's for Thanksgiving. Jeff and I opted for starting at 3:00 am, but Hill, Keith and Lexi stayed up all night to go to Toys R Us and maybe Walmart, I can't remember. They came back at 3:00 and woke us and the kids (yeah, we took the kids. Can you imagine??) but in reality they were excited to go and were pretty good too. Plus none of us wanted to stay home with them and miss out on the fun (!?!) Wish I had some pictures of that, since I'm sure we were a little scary looking, but no more so than all the other crazies.
Hillari with her sweet bike. I want one!
When we got home we put up the tree so Lexi could help decorate it with us. Lexi and I have a long time tradition of stringing popcorn for the tree while watching Little Women and Prancer, two of my favorite Christmas movies. The only way we could fit it in was to do it on the way to and from Hillari's. So we strung popcorn and watched our movies in the car. It was actually pretty fun.
The Thanksgiving weekend was very fun filled and we were thankful that we could be togther with some of our family for the holiday. Thanks Hill and Keith for a great time!
