Thanksgiving Week

Justin had to work this Thanksgiving. So as a result we ended up with three Thanksgiving dinners. Monday night Terri cooked an amazing dinner with a beef roast and all the trimmings. David picked up a wonderful cake from a company called "Nothing Bundt Cake". I would highly recommend checking them out. Wednesday, the girls and I cooked a turkey dinner for our little family. Justin and Andrew tiled our downstairs bathroom while we cooked. After dinner we made a big fire and Amanda and Meagan did a show for us. All written and directed be Meagan herself. It was really cute. She made us all paper hats or feathers and her and Amanda dressed up. Meagan continued on as an Indian for the rest of the week, with a little dress washing in between. Obviously Bugsy was made to pose for a few Thanksgiving pictures too. On Thanksgiving, the kids and I headed to Mom and Dad's for dinner. My brother Matt and his wife Jolie were visiting from Alaska and it has been really nice seeing them. Andrea, Ben, Zane, Quinn, Mike and Victoria were all there as well. It was a great dinner. I'll post some pics when I get them. We are finally finishing up all the leftovers. The pie was gone by Friday night. We are still working on the rest, but I think I will call it quits tonight. What doesn't get eaten, won't. It has been a really nice Thanksgiving week. I am so thankful for all the people in my life. We are so lucky to have an amazing family and extended family. I love them all.

Yep. Justin, David, Micheal and Paul are all on the same team. The good thing is that they all get the same days off too.
