Our Turkey Day

My youngest holding her "turkey" bread basket that she made at school....
My parents...
Waiting to eat...

I went back and forth about posting these pictures b/c I know all of You have moved on to Christmas and the stuffing and turkey are distant memories. However, here are a few pictures of our Thanksgiving. We also went to the Creation Museum in KY on Friday with grandparents!

It was a great "time" with family and even got a lot of my Christmas shopping done..Ya HOO! Just a few odds and ends to buy yet! Is it me or just what happens as you get older but every "holiday" is going faster and faster. Just let me off this "fast" train and enjoy the season with all it's magic!

p.s. Go over to the Secret is In The Sauce..they are having an UNBELIEVABLE giveaway! Tis The Season to Try to Win!
