Guess what? We got our family pictures back on Wednesday! I'm so excited to share them with you...but you'll have to wait, why? Cause I can *insert evil grin here* I love how they turned out, minus the sour face on Mini Fox the entire time, lol. Oh well, three out of four looking good isn't bad.
I took Wednesday off and did nothing, it was great. I pretended I was going to do some Christmas tree stuff, but I didn't, haha. We did however go do this on Wednesday.
|Mini Fox's Dress and Baby Fox's Shirt are from Gymboree and are on mega sale!|
We found a rocking horse and had to step over the very large gated off area to put her on it
It always ends in tears
|Not the official picture we bought, but pretty darn close|
For Thanksgiving I was in charge of bringing bread, so I decided to try and make my own...I know crazy right? But a friend had made this a few years ago for a dinner party, so I thought I would give it a whirl, it was AWESOME! You have to try it and impress all of your friends/family. Seriously. I of course brought back up, trusty 'ol Hawaiian Rolls, everyone loves those right?
Thanksgiving was perfect, we were at my cousin's house with some of her family from the other side, it so much fun, and the kids had a blast. Wasn't the table gorgeous?
And my SIL out did herself with the desserts. She made everything from scratch, including the pumpkin part! I can't eat it, but I hear it was delicious!

These people really know how to throw a Thanksgiving meal.
Friday I woke up early and went here. I didn't get any deals, but there was no one in there! I was actually surprised? I thought it would be crazy, but I guess all the deal to be had were had the night before.
We decorated the upstairs Christmas tree, this is the tree with the random ornaments we've collected through the years.
We did it while Mini was sleeping, but she loved wearing the Santa hat
Saturday I woke up early to get the grocery shopping done before leaving for Big Bear. You know it's early when it's just you and the gas truck at Costco.
As I was unpacking the groceries and getting ready to leave, my friend called and said three of the 5 people in her family woke up with sore throats...so we canceled and did this for a good part of the day.
Sunday I decided to make a Turkey for dinner. Okay I didn't decide this on Sunday, I decided on Thursday (yep on Thanksgiving I sent Mr. to the store to buy a turkey so it could start the thawing out process. I asked him if they checker looked at him funny, he said he used the machine and never talked to anyone). How I came about this...well I had to make my own stuffing to bring with me (since I can't eat butter), and I was going to have most of it left over, so I thought, what goes best with stuffing? Turkey, but since I knew there wouldn't be much left over Turkey, I decided why not do Thanskgiving again on Sunday. So we did.
But before that, Mini Fox was being all cute with her Blankie.
She found brother's blankie and started hauling that thing around too.
Here's a good place for a nap
They do love their blankies
Back to the meal. I learned how to carve a turkey, I really stink at it. By the time I took the picture, everyone had already taken their food...oops!
|Not pretty, I know, but it was really good|
Green beans and bacon and mashed potatoes (as you can see they were a hit)
So good, and we get this for the next few night...yay!
|Did I ever tell you guys I tried to make Thanksgiving dinner in July, but couldn't find a stinkin' turkey?|
