Our Thanksgiving Day 2013

We had a busy day and packed in a lot of friends, family, and fun.  Thanksgiving dinner was at our house this year, but since we live in my Mom's house right now, she really did all the work!  

Here was our day: 

Brody and I got to meet Kalyn and Kiel for coffee first thing Thursday morning.  It was his first time meeting Aunt KK and we all had a great time catching up quickly. 

We made a quick stop at Matt's aunts house as well to tell all of his side of the family hello and give them some time with Brody.  How cute are those turkey cupcakes??  Loved them. 

After all of that running around in the morning, it was time to head back home and relax.  It's so easy to stress yourself out during the holidays trying to fit everything in and I'm always guilty of it.   I am really trying to slow down this year and take all this time in with Brody during his very first holidays!

The Food

The Table:  I had big plans to make homemade turkey name cards and homemade menus like I did here; but life got busy and none of those got made this year! Oh well.  The table was still beautiful.

I am thankful for a lot of things this year, but this guy certainly takes the cake!!!
