Thanksgiving........

My parents left on Tuesday (11/23) so Wednesday it was back to reality & trying to get the house back in order.  I am normally a clean freak but I have been worse about things with this pregnancy & am even worse when we have people coming over & we do this Sunday since we are hosting a couple's baby shower for our dear friends Meghan & Justin.........so needless to say I am & have been in a cleaning frenzy!

Anyway, Wednesday I cleaned & did a ton of laundry & the Thursday was Thanksgiving & we again ate way too much food!  We packed up that morning & headed to Lance's Aunt Joie's house for the holiday.  Almost the whole family was there for Thanksgiving this year & that means A LOT of people; Just look at the family photo that was taken (& there are still a few missing)!


Brayden had a blast; we got there early enough so that he could eat & then nap there & he woke up in an amazing mood.  I was afraid that he would be a bit stand offish with the amount of people there but he walked around like he owned the place.  He found his 2nd cousin (I think) & they played for the longest time.  The were first fighting over the toy stroller but they soon came to a compromise & B just pushed her around.  Honestly she is cuter than any baby doll he could have put in there!!





The big kids turned on the karaoke machine which meant B had to dance until he couldn't dance anymore........


But he still never lost sight of his long lost cousin, Isabella........... 

The day was fun & it was so nice to see all of the family but it was so nice to get home & rest; if you can call sitting down with the Black Friday ads & planning my Friday of shopping relaxing.  Shopping was a great success & I feel like I got a lot done but this sums up how I felt at about 2pm since I was up at 2:45am!


I left the house to go to Kohl's & Walmart before little butt was even up & then B's JuJu came over at 7 & we shopped for the rest of the day.........he was quite the trooper that day!!
