We had 3 Thanksgivings on Thursday! We started at my grandmas house where Papa Vallie took the kids to see the rabbits and then they played with the same old toys I used to play with. We love visiting Grandmas house! We got to Grandmas house a little late (all Nathan's fault by the way ;) ) so we didn't get to stay as long and were a little late getting to our next stop - Nathan's family Thanksgiving.
|Ryan and I were twins this year for Thanksgiving :)|
|24 hours later Papa Vallie was rushed to the ER with chest pains - luckily they caught it before he had a full blown heart attack and he is recovering now!|
We had Nathan's family Thanksgiving at his uncles shop - it is a nice open space so no one is crowded and lots of room for the kids to play. The kids had a blast with the pool table and foosball table - plus the 4 TVs were a bonus :)

Me and my Dad always do our Thanksgiving by going to Walmart to do Black Friday shopping. There wasn't much on the list there for my family this year so I was there mainly for help with the others. I got a new DVD player for the car and some new DVDs and games for the kids stockings. I helped Dad fill up 4 carts for the other grandkids though :) It wasn't wild or crazy, I didn't see any fights or have to fight for anything and I was home and having movie night with the kids by 7:30!
On Friday we had my mom's Thanksgiving. We always do a non-traditional Thanksgiving with my mom. This year it was Hawaiian food. We had grilled fruit and vegetables and pork loin. We also celebrated my sister-in-law Jessica and Nathan's birthdays. The kids had so much fun playing with their cousins and have been asking when they can do that again - this makes me so happy - I loved playing with my cousins growing up.
We wended our Thanksgiving Holiday with a family movie date to see Moana. It was a really good movie! Me and Noah both had to try really hard not to happy cry ;)
|I cannot tell you how much money we have put in this Die Hard game at them movies!|
Next up - we finally told the kids about their MAGICAL Christmas gift from us! The countdown has begun!
