Thanksgiving Weekend!

So today is my time to catch up on blogging before the big BIRTHDAY weekend begins!  Well, it kind of already has but that will be my next post.  First things first, we had a wonderful FOUR days of FOUR family FUN!

It started with Family Game Night on Wednesday.  Marissa loves her Curious George game.  So while they played that, I baked some chocolate chip cookies!  Win=Win Situation!  Everyone was happy!

Game Time!
 
Thanksgiving started as always has the last 5 years, with an early morning wake-up call from early risers.  We got the coffee brewing and the butterbraid baking right away.  Another highlight of each Thanksgiving is sipping our coffee and looking through the Black Friday ads.  Marissa started coloring the Turkey page and had a little help this year from Daddy & Brody.

Coloring!

We then got ready to go out to Grandpa and Grandma Meyer's for Thanksgiving!  Here's a few pics we took throughout the day!

We finished out our day with a family movie night watching Beauty and the Beast with some carmel popcorn!  Delish!  Fun, full day!

Now on to Friday, we didn't shop this year at all on Black Friday instead we decided to decorate our Christmas Tree.  To say that was a challenge would be putting it lightly.  Brody wanted to get into EVERYTHING!  Here's a few pics of our Christmas Tree decorating party!  After the tree was decorated, we took the kids to the Y to go swimming.  Apparently, we weren't the only ones with that idea as it was packed full of kids!

Saturday, we went to Grandpa and Grandma Holgrimson's to bake Christmas cookies.  Marissa really enjoyed decorating them this year!

Sunday after church, we went and finally started Christmas shopping!  We got a lot accomplished and even had time to clean the house after our busy weekend!  It was an awesome weekend and we are looking forward to having Daddy home again for an extended vacation time over Christmas!
