Today, Thanksgiving Day, we went to my mom's for lunch. She cooked a traditional Thanksgiving meal and it was delicious. We only made one stop today because it's just too hard to go to several different places with the kids. It's easier for everyone to come to us because the quints get into everything and most of our families' homes are not child-proofed, which means we're constantly having to get the kids out of something they're not suppose to be in, and it's just no fun when that's all you do the whole time you're out. Here's some pictures from our day with my family.

This year, my friends and I made the kids' Thanksgiving shirts. I couldn't find 6 cute Thanksgiving shirts for cheap so I decided I'd try to make them myself. The shirts turned out cute and I learned a few good lessons with this first try.
|The kids had a turkey shirt and I made myself a shirt that says 'blessed'.|

So, I know a lot of people will not agree with me on this next subject, but that's okay, different strokes for different folks.... I do not decorate my house for Christmas until after Thanksgiving is over. There, I said it, man it feels good to get that off my chest. lol But seriously, I really hate how Thanksgiving gets overlooked. I feel that Christmas is worth waiting for and I want my kids to understand what Thanksgiving is all about. So here's what our house looked like for Thanksgiving. Thanks to Brady (and his teachers) we had lots of cute Thanksgiving crafts around the house.
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!!! I hope you have a blessed holiday season!
