Thanksgiving Stillwell Style

The day before Thanksgiving was Nathan's birthday. Luckily it rained the day before so Nathan was able to take the day off of work and I took him to Ft. Smith shopping and out to eat for his birthday. I love that he loves to shop as much as me - I can't tell you how many times I have been waiting on him to get done shopping when I am done. We got some Christmas shopping done and had lunch at our favorite place - TGI Fridays. We came back and got the kids and took them with us to have a birthday dinner for Daddy. We went to Crosswoods for some steaks and to listen to some people sing some lovely karaoke ;) The kids loved pretend playing the video games at the bar - so I just had to snap a picture of them bellied up to the bar.

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 :)

Sleepy Daddy :)

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!
