Thanksgiving!!!

We were all really looking forward to Thanksgiving this year, even if we weren't on a cruise again like last year ;-). The weather had been perfect (and stayed that way all week), we got time off of school, seminary and work, lots of yummy food to be eaten every day and we got to spend time with almost my whole family, including Hope & Kyler and Scotto. We were just missing our Florida crew and it was definitely weird to have everyone else here without them.
In total we saw three movies at the Alamo, went out to two restaurants, had one late night sibling game session, had a beautiful and delicious Thanksgiving meal and we provided three pies from Proud Pie for the dessert.
While Thanksgiving is always a fun time, I think I enjoyed it even more this year knowing that we wouldn't be around extended family for Christmas. We have so much to be thankful for and family is definitely at the top of my list!

Kayley had everything set up beautifully, of course and Scott fried the two turkeys with different seasonings and they were both amazing...along with all the other sides everyone brought.

I bought the game Ticket to Ride forever ago and we finally busted it out and took the time to learn to play it. We ended up playing another round the next day too.
