So Thankful

OK, so this Thanksgiving post is a little late but better late than never, right? Normally we celebrate the holiday with my mom's side of the family and Josh's mom's side of the family but this year we changed things up a bit. We decided to head to Tennessee to see my dad's family. Although we missed everyone here in Arkansas we had a WONDERFUL time while we were away. We stayed at my dad's brother's house while we were there. My Aunt Hansi is a great hostess and had everything just perfect upon our arrival. Thanksgiving morning we woke up and went to see my grandparents.


I went in my pjs. Looking good.

I think you know who these two nuts are.

After visiting with them we headed back to my Aunt and Uncle's house so we could help her get the turkey out and prepped. My he was a BIG turkey.

I can't believe I didn't take a picture of him after he cooked in the oven for hours. He sure was pretty. And tasted even better.

Here's one of the pretty tables all set. My cousin's wife Mary Beth and her mom did a great job on the arrangement. There was another smaller table that was super cute too. I can't BELIEVE I didn't take any pictures of my cousin, his wife and their ADORABLE little girl, Avery. I'm trying to talk Mary Beth into starting a blog and if she does I'll send you her way.
Seriously, A perfect holiday and we hope to do it again soon. Thanks for such a wonderful time!
Once we got back from our short road trip we,

Worked a puzzle and

celebrated my dad's birthday. What a great ending to a great weekend.
And for an added bonus look at these two hotties.
