But nothing beats time at home- hanging out with family, riding bikes, playing Wii, relaxing in pajamas, baking for Thanksgiving and decorating the Christmas tree.
We even tried "Amelia Bedilia's" recipe for apple pie. Success!
On Thanksgiving day we went to Mimi's house. The weather was perfect for playing with cousins outside. Afton, Maisy, Luke and Analeigh know how to have fun!
Maisy and Analeigh share the same interests... babies and cell phones.
My mom and Dave came out to Mimi's too. I am so thankful to have family close by.
Afton is thrilled that her sister and cousins are big enough to play with her. She is really good with the little ones.
Maisy had the most fun running from me- she loves a good game of chase- and she is getting fast!
While we waited for the turkey to cook...
Afton finally mastered the monkey bars :)
Dinner was delicious- the meal consisted of friend turkey, Paula Dean's mac-n-cheese, sausage stuffing, sweet potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts, rolls, cranberries, honey baked ham, stuffed mushrooms, funeral potatoes, El Paso cheese grits, corn casserole and more!
After we ate, the kiddos fished and ran around the back yard.
We finished the evening with dessert and headed home- tummies and hearts both equally full.
