Thanksgiving 2017 is in the books, and it was a good one!
It started out with everyone sleeping in just a little bit later than usual. #sothankful
Then Lucy and I started making zucchini carrot muffins for breakfast . . .
. . . but she got distracted with helping Daddy set up our new play yard!
We purchased this gigantic play yard to put in the basement with the hope that the girls will be able to play downstairs a bit while Matty and I work out. #fingerscrossed
We decided to set it up in the living room for the weekend, and it was great!
It has since been moved to the basement, and I can’t wait to see how it goes!
Emily really enjoyed her zucchini muffin . . .
. . . while watching us sing Happy Birthday to Snort! He turned 14 on Thanksgiving! He was found by Matt’s aunt as a stray, and the vet estimated that his birthday was sometime in November, so we always celebrate it on Thanksgiving. #floatingbirthday
We arrived at my parents’ house in time for Matty to watch the Lions game. Emily wore Lucy’s outfit from last year. Lucy was 18 months old when she wore it . . . Emmy is 7 months. haha
Lucy wasted no time putting on her accessories.
Lucy and Sadie were inseparable, and I was so thankful that Lucy was willingly playing with someone other than Matty or me!
Emily spent a good part of the day with Aunt Carla.
But wasn’t too pleased when Aunt Carla’s mom tried to snuggle in with her!
Love these two!
Lucy and Gordie did a great job eating with, bickering with, and correcting one another at the kiddie table.
After eating her cheese, roll, and yogurt (the Pilgrims would be so proud!), Lucy came over to sit with Emily and me.
Emily was showing off her baby arms after dinner.
And then decided to check out the Black Friday ads.
And then disaster (almost) struck. My parents have this car for the kiddos that zooms everywhere and supposedly cannot get stuck or stop moving . . . unless a two-year-old gets it wrapped in her hair! Lucy just walked in to the living room calm as can be with the car stuck on her head . . . and then started freaking out!
We distracted her with chocolate pie while Matty eventually untangled it. Lucy had been asking for pie for quite a while before this incident. I think it was all a ploy to finally get a piece!
Emmy Roses was getting a little fussy so I popped her in the carrier . . .
. . . and she knew exactly what to do!
My dad was explaining the rules of the wishbone to the kiddos.
Every year we get my parents an ornament with the grandkids’ names on it.
Carla caught my dad sneaking some extra pie in the kitchen.
Lucy passed out on the drive home. She had reindeer antlers around her neck and a blinking Rudolph nose in her hand. She was done with Thanksgiving and ready to move on to Christmas.
We spent the rest of Thanksgiving playing hard.
And, in what is quickly becoming a Thanksgiving tradition, I didn’t like the family photo we took at my parents’ house so we took a selfie later on when we got home.
Hope everyone had a great Turkey Day! I’m hoping to be back again tomorrow with all the pics from the rest of our Thanksgiving break.
