Thanksgiving 2011

This year's Thanksgiving was great.  We started off the day watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.  We spent most of our time watching it in our bed...all five of us!  Then we started getting ready for the day.  First stop was the Hursts'.  We feasted on turkey, potatoes, gravy, stuffing, etc.  It was all so wonderful.

The second place was Aunt Cindy's house.  After we ate, the kids got to work on their gingerbread houses {which has slowly become a tradition now}.  Matthew made his look like a bull, Lucas decorated his very nicely, and Natalie got some help from Aunt Lindsey.  Before we knew it, we had three cute houses to use as a centerpiece on our kitchen table.

After we were done at Cindy's, Derrick and I dropped the kids off at the Hursts' to spend the night.  Yep, we went shopping.  We left straight from there, around 8:00 pm, and went to Michael's.  After Michael's, we got in line at Toys R Us.  We were in line for 2 and a half hours.  Crazy, I know.  But, we got what we wanted {the XBox w Kinect}, and almost all of our shopping done.  We headed home to sleep, then I went back out on Black Friday {around 9 a.m.} and it wasn't bad at all.  Actually, I accomplished a lot of shopping.  It was great!
