Thanksgiving 2013

December 8, 2013

We spent another fun Thanksgiving at Millwood this year with Tom’s family!  I didn’t realize when we were booking our Disney trip that it was the day after Thanksgiving so we ended up having to pack up and leave right after the meal (which I got NO pictures of, uh!)

Gigi got the kids some cool marshmallow roasting things on what looks like fishing rods. When you turn the reel handle, it makes your marshmallow rotate.  My kids actually ate roasted marshmallows for the first time ever!

She also planned some fun crafts to make some more Christmas tree ornaments (I also got no pictures of the Christmas tree this year, double uh!) We got our ornaments we made last year out. The dogs only ate a few of the salt dough ones.  What a fun new tradition! The kids came in talking about the Christmas tree when we first got there so they remembered.

We had an early birthday celebration for Rett. Gigi got him an awesome batman cake.  Evie’s already planned out that she wants Barbie for her fourth birthday. Wonderful.

Tom and his dad went out and did manly things like kill ducks.  It hasn’t been getting cold enough to have good duck hunting so everyone was really excited to have gotten this many.

Of course after all the fun is over, the cleaning starts. You’ll notice all the young guys disappeared when it was time to do the dirty work.

Evie with one of ‘her girls’.  She loved spending time with her cousins and all the bracelets they made her with their rainbow looms.  She talked about her cousins ‘Stella, Max and Chameleon’ the entire trip and how excited she was to see her cousins again soon.

We kept the kids busy with lots of electronic time. What great parents we are!  Rett has fallen in love with the plants vs zombie game.

We had lots of yummy food and had a wonderful time making new memories with family.  Can’t wait to head back for New Years!
