:-) Tony and I have taken over the tradition of hosting it, and I love it - it's one of my very favorite holidays. My MIL arrived on Tuesday, so it's been nice having her here - she's always a huge help to me, too! We had 11 adults and 4 kids which is very manageable. My grandmother came down from Florida, and I am lucky enough to have local grandparents, too. Here are some highlights of our day:
Noah helping his YaYa make fruit salad:
My table all dressed up and ready to party :-)
My daughter, who was also dressed up and ready to party, lol:
The kids anxiously awaiting the arrival of their cousins:
Isn't my dad cute? (that is Tony's hat, btw, and it was very popular last night as several of us were wearing it, hehae)
A very cut-off self portrait of my mom and me:
Not a great picture, but i'll take what I can get! As always, I had my SIL take a ton, and we still couldn't get a decent one, lol. The kids are never smiling/looking at the camera at the same time!
In the midst of getting ready for Thanksgiving this week, I was able to make a new Fancy Pants page, too. LOVE this new Splendid line! I cut out that little panda from one of the Splendid papers (Valentine's cards) - isn't he cute??
Journaling says: They are literally the girls next door, and they're your best friends. Lucky boy!
By the way, please tell me i'm not the only crazy one who went out on Black Friday! Did you all get any good deals??
