Thanksgiving

What a great day with family! My parents came over from the west side, Riss got off work early to join us, and Keith's family was all here too! I spent the morning watching a little Macy's Parade, and getting the kitchen ready for it's big day (my kitchen and I haven't spent much time together this year!), while Keith played a little soccer with the guys. Everyone started to trickle in around 12, we did crafts with the kids, had lots of time for visiting, and of course there was football on! Oh, and did I forget to mention the FOOD?! It was pretty awesome :) I am very thankful for all of it! Here are a few pictures of our fun day. Alli and Jeter just finished up the cute place cards and were playing a game.
Mr. Turkey, about to hang out in the oven for a few hours.

Me and my cute husband!

Look at that GREAT turkey! Mom is a little crazy though :)

Here is the spread---YUM!



GG is the baby whisperer


And let's finish the night off with a little dress up... that is Rece's favorite thing in the world, so it's a good think we have a wig and a sword!

Such cute pics! We LOVE that pic of you & Keith together...ahh, love his beard too! We both think he looks like Ryan Reynolds with it. ;) What hotties you are! Glad you had a great Thanksgiving! Lots of love...
P.S. You cracked me up with your caption about Grandma being the baby whisperer - you are too funny!

Looks like such a FUN day! I am glad that your parents got to come over and that everyone could be together! Did you use any advice from your kids on "how to cook a turkey"?? Just wondering :)

I love the Williams Family! And seeing that picture of your parents actually makes me miss them! Remember our Thanksgiving together when my family abandoned me in Seattle and your family adopted me for the weekend? Yogi and I celebrated Thanksgiving with just the two of us and a roast chicken -- it's kind of hard to celebrate Thanksgiving in a country other than America. I miss you and take care friend!
