Scenes from our Weekend | Thanksgiving

I love Thanksgiving because it always feels like everyone has a little more time off than at Christmas time and you can cram in a lot of good time with family and friends!! I certainly did that this year and I loved every minute of it!! We alternate the holidays every year with my in-laws and this year was a Malone (my husbands side) Thanksgiving.   They were in town for most of the week and we got to spend a lot of quality time with them, but I also got to sneak off for a night in Destin to visit a bunch of my Dad's side of the family early in the week and some much needed time with my best girlfriends since we were in the first grade! 

Aren't they the cutest??

Brody had a blast in Destin playing with cousins.  My cousins have a bunch of kids, so I guess that makes them Brody's second cousins?  I never know how that works.

The girls were so sweet to him.  They were the best little entertainers. I wanted to take them home with me.

Brody passed down his red hot rod that he got for Christmas last year to his cousin William this week.  It was so sweet watching William in the walker and Brody push him around.

These two have guilt written all over their faces...

So Matt and I hosted our very first Thanksgiving this year.  I am so mad at myself for not snapping a picture of the table set for Thanksgiving Day.  There were nine of us and we all fit around the dining room table.  I was so happy.   Here are a couple pictures that I shared from our fall decor, but I switched a few things around on the table for Thanksgiving Day. 

Brody with his adorable cousins

Trying to get a family picture was a bust once again.

I did get a quick snap of the food, but of course it was after we had attacked it :)

My niece captured this cute picture of Brody on her iTouch.  I was so impressed because I can never get him to smile and stand still!

Friday night we headed over to my besties parent's house and celebrated her engagement with friends and family!!  I loved chatting wedding talk with her and getting the planning process rolling!!

 Saturday was filled with football as Brody cheered on the GATORS! Sad lose :(

And Sunday we took the little booger through Lowe's to start the Christmas decorating festivities!  We got so much done this weekend and I can't wait to share the details with all of you...

As fun as Thanksgiving week always is, I do kind of look forward to getting back to our normal routine again this week! Don't forget today is Cyber Monday.  I already have items in my virtual shopping carts and my list ready to go to knock out all my online shopping today!!!

Lots more Home of Malone's gift guides to come this week too, so stay tuned :)
