Thankful… A Photo Dump

by Jesse on November 27, 2011

This by far was the best Thanksgiving we have ever had! Loads of family time! Doesn’t get much better than that!

Here was my bunch Thanksgiving morning.

How we dressed our table. Craft paper and I let the kids each decorate their spots. =)

A yearly tradition for us is to go to Utica Square  (a local shopping area) and celebrate their “Lights On”. We bundle up and out we go!

Some of the shops debut their new window displays. I was loving these sparkly NutCrackers.

Every year Josh braves the ginormous Starbucks line for Hot Cocoa…

All Smiles!!

Now they are warm!

On Friday we spent the day finishing up our decorating, more on that later this week.

I think the best part of the day was watching my kiddos make ornaments for their tree. This year we made snowmen, angels and nutcrackers.

I also made a new time capsule ornament with the kids this year. Just a little different than last year and I can’t wait to share it with you! Coming later this week!

Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!

Hugs!

LOVE the photo of those little Peaks decorating the tree! Hope you post some pics of their tree. The ornaments they made look super cute. Utica Square has to be one of my fav Tulsa locations, I miss it esp at Christmas time. We always visited Santa in his house and made a stop at Starbucks. Did you all stop by to see Santa? love to you all

What fun family traditions! I love how involved the kids were with everything.

The other night when we saw you at church, Steven asked who you were. I explained to him how we ‘knew’ each other, and reminded him about R being a wrestler (I had shown him pictures). He turns to me and says, “The dad must have been a wrestler too. He looks like one.” Totally cracks me up. I guess one wrestler would know another.

LOL! It is funny to hear guys who have wrestled say stuff like that. It never fails when we go somewhere my husband will pick someone out of the crowd that “looks like a wrestler.” LOL!

Sorry I’ve been MIA lately…. haven’t been much in the blogging mood for some reason. I am finally getting around to reading my fav blogs and this was such a fun post! I gotta get the kids to make some ornaments this year. Have you done a tutorial for making kid-ornaments?
