After getting the stuff chopped and ready, we moved onto the Thanksgiving crafts I had planned. It was so nice to spend the day relaxing with the kids and doing a craft. They love doing crafts and we haven't done one in so long because things have been so busy!
We made toilet paper roll turkeys and they turned out really cute! I had saved one toilet paper roll per kid, but they were enjoying it so much that they decided it wasn't enough. They went around the house looking in the trash cans of the bathrooms to find more empty rolls...luckily we use a lot of tp in this house! I was fine with this, until I discovered Ben unwrapping toilet paper upstairs to get another roll! That wasn't ok, but we ended up with a lot of turkeys!
What a fun day! The next morning we got up and relaxed for a bit after a good breakfast. We watched the Macy's Day Parade on TV for a while before getting the dinner in the oven.
Then the Acuff's came over and what fun it was so see the college cousins again! Juliette was especially excited to spend time with Cousin Andrew (our favorite freshman at ND!!).
Luckily Aunt Domi was happy to give Belle some love (I wasn't giving Belle any love after the bread incident).
What a wonderful Thanksgiving! We have so many things to be thankful for this year, including living close enough to the Acuff's to be able to spend holidays with them! We missed all of our family from afar and thanked God for our many blessings. Happy Thanksgiving!
