Thanksgiving 2008

This year we made a cute thanksgiving turkey out of Carter's hand prints to display on our wall. For family home evening in November, we learned about the history of thanksgiving, read lots of thanksgiving stories, and shared with one another what we are thankful for.

On Thanksgiving morning we put up our Christmas tree and decorations and headed over to Drew's parents house for a quiet dinner after naps. Overall it was good and very uneventful. This year I made rolls, brought veggies, stuffing, and potatoes. Drew's family provided the rest. Later in the evening we all headed over to Drew's cousin's house for yummy pie.

Overall Thanksgiving was good and very uneventful. However, we really need to come up with a few thanksgiving traditions. Maybe it is just me, but holidays in Virginia have become quite lame. The only thing we do is eat together and call it a holiday. Don't get me wrong, I love eating (especially since the baby inside of me also likes eating) but it seems like we could do more than that! Any ideas, people?

I have been keeping up with your blog every time you leave us several posts at once. I am so happy to know that the baby's heart is ok. That's neat that you aren't finding out the sex....I am not sure if I could do it!
Happy Birthday to Carter. I can't believe our babies are turning 5 now either!!!! It doesn't feel that long ago that we were walking around the church building with Drew and Joe because we were prego and miserable? I still want to get together with you guys soon. I hope you got my email a while ago. Anyway, hope you're well and feeling ok. I can't wait to see the new arrival. Love you guys!

Sam's family likes to do a talent show on Thanksgiving, but mine does one on Christmas we kind of do it twice. I've been trying to come up with some fun Christmas traditions myself this year...and it always seems like the season ends before I can really decide!
