Our cooking started on Wednesday, prepping and doing everything we could the day before. Of course, after that much cooking, I wasn’t making dinner, so pizza it was!
My cute people
My wall decorations courteously of Mr Farris (the girls' teacher) and Jessi’s turkey
We enjoyed a feast. Everything was lovely. The girls and I were talking about the quantity of food we make for Thanksgiving. Blake has added several dishes to the menu – because it isn’t Thanksgiving without…. So once everyone has gotten married and we have incorporated everyone’s favorites, we are going to need a banquet table to put everything out on! :)
We were all stuffed and full. After several hours, it was time to decorate – as per tradition. Out came the boxes, down went Thanksgiving, and up went Christmas. I am so grateful for that tradition – it gets done so fast and everyone helps!
Sammi had gone downstairs to take a nap. When she came up, she said, “It’s a new season!”
My Ellie proof nativity – the other one is up high on a shelf she can’t reach :)
Wish I could capture the beauty of a lit Christmas tree in a dark room!
So many stockings :)
