We had a completely wonderful and happy Thanksgiving this year. My parents flew in from Phoenix and we all celebrated together at my brother’s home in Kansas City. They bought their new place back in May, so it was really exciting to get to celebrate their first big holiday there all together!
It was laid back, easy going, and so much fun. We got to visit with each other, eat lots of food, and really savor a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend together.
Thanksgiving dinner was delicious! As I was getting my second plate of food, Mabel climbed up and fell down into the coffee table and split the tie between her top lip and gums. It was bloody and sort of tramautic! Gah! But luckily she was totally okay- and it resulted in my brother going to Walmart on Black Friday night for infant tylenol and beer….which ended up being really hilarious.
We played lots of games and the girls enjoying getting out of the house to explore around outside! This unseasonably warm November has been perfect for that.
One afternoon we met up with Jim’s brother and sister and did “The Exit Room”. It was Jim and my first experience with something like this and it was a great time!
On the Friday after Thanksgiving we snuggled on the couch and watched the original Grinch. Both girls just loved it!
Then, on Saturday before we left, we stopped to play at this amazing park right by my brother’s house. Jim and I joked that we needed to move back to Kansas City just for this incredible park, lol.
It was such a wonderful holiday to spend with family and we are already counting down the days to Christmas!
