Our Thanksgiving

I truly hope your Thanksgiving was fantastic and you, like myself, ate your body weight in stuffing.

Aaron helped me in the morning with all of the prep work for the dessert (apple snickerdoodle cobbler), the stuffing and the sweet potatoes. I was afraid we weren't going to have any apples for the cobbler because for every slice I cut, Aaron was there eating another.

We also watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and Jill pretended to be a Rockette the rest of the morning. I don't know what it is about that parade, but it always puts me in the spirit for the holidays.

Thanksgiving was spent at Mimi and Paw Paw's house and we had quite the spread. Aaron insisted on eating the turkey leg and after a few bites he gave up.

After dinner we headed home to relax and then read the Elf on the Shelf story. I really love this tradition and even though by night 10 I'm spent with ideas, it's totally worth it to see their reaction every  morning.

Boyd the elf's first location was their room and the reaction they had this morning was priceless. If it is any indication of how they will react on Christmas morning, it will be perfect! 

I hope you had a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

That turkey leg looks HUGE in comparison to Aaron's head! Priceless!

We don't do the Elf on the Shelf thing, but I so enjoy seeing everyone on FB and blogs...I'll bet it's so much fun!

Happy Belated Thanksgiving to you and yours, Amanda!
