thanksgiving weekend

We celebrated our Thanksgiving holiday Thursday through Sunday.  Several days full of family, food, laughs, and blessings upon blessings.  Thursday was spent with Ryan's parents and grandparents.  Then my family came on Friday and spent the weekend here.  It was so much fun to all be together.  The weather was beautiful.  We spent Friday morning at the park and did a little shopping in town before my sister and mom arrived.  After dinner, two of my cousins came over and we got out the yarn and crochet needles.  On Saturday the cousins played and played before we all at our Thanksgiving meal at my aunt and uncle's house.

 Puzzle time!

Mason snuggles.
After everyone left today we went and cut down a Christmas tree.  The house is officially decorated.  Mason keeps insisting that it is going to snow because it's Christmas time.  Our shopping is done except for two things (I think this is the earliest I've ever said that.) I have a few projects left to finish up and then I'm hoping to wrap everything up.   I'm searching for new recipes to try, activities to do with the kids, and just plain enjoying the season.
