Turkey day take 2

The day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday) Grandma, Pepaw, and Great Grandma came down for a visit. I of course had to work that morning. I actually enjoy working Black Friday. I keep busy and it is fun to watch all the people out and about. After work I got to do a little shopping and actually got what I want and didn't have to be at the stores at crazy hours to get it! Score! Our visitors arrived later that afternoon. We were going to have our own Thanksgiving the next evening. My first ever Thanksgiving that I cooked! Ah!

I picked up our Turkey at Giant the previous Sunday. It was a little 11 pounder. Perfect for our little Thanksgiving. I used my Giant points so it was free. Gotta love a good deal! The kids each took a turn holding our turkey.

Helping Mommy clean for our company. I figure I need to have them help while they still think it is fun and no bribery is needed. I know some day it will be like pulling teeth to get them to help clean. Fortunately I have proof that they used to willingly help me!

Nathan decided to try on Pepaw's boots. A little big but who knows.....he may grow into them some day!

Of course one boy can't do something without the other needing to do it as well. Levi attempting to walk in Pepaw's boots. He didn't make it very far. I think they may go back to just walking around in my shoes instead. lol.

Saturday afternoon we are relaxing a little after shopping the morning away. They brought down an entertainment unit for us that was left to us by Alan's other Grandmother. That will be a whole different post though so stay tuned!

While the trio napped Daddy and Pepaw put together the entertainment unit. Grandma, and Great Grandma looked at photo albums of our first months with the trio. How time has flown!

Watching some tv on our "new" tv according to the kids!

Great Grandma having a snuggle with Paige :)

Alan carving our Turkey. The rest of dinner is cooking on the stove. Yum!

Aunt Stephanie stopped by to say hi. She got a back massage of hot wheels cars. Lucky girl!

The kiddie table at dinner. I made Mac and Cheese for the kids. Not because it is a Thanksgiving food but because I wanted to eat my dinner somewhat in peace. Since the kids don't really care for meat, or mashed potatoes, or really any Thanksgiving foods mac and cheese it was! They do eat corn bread though so they had some of that too.

The adult table full of yummy goodness.

Here we are all crammed together.

We had a great time with our visit. I also must say that I think for my first Thanksgiving it came out pretty good. The food tasted good. I wouldn't mind doing it again sometime. Perhaps next year we will do it again!
