Turkey and Stuffing and Pie...Oh my!

There is nothing I love more than a good Thanksgiving meal. In my own opinion, it is the PERFECT meal. Turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, greenbean casserole, and pumpkin pie! Doesn't get much better than that! My Thanksgiving chow-down actually started Thursday when lunch at work was catered by Cracker Barrel and it was all the famous Thanksgiving fixins!

We headed up to KC around 6pm on Wednesday. The kids were perfect in the car. Leila slept and Malakai talked the ENTIRE time! Arrived at the in-laws around 11, put the kids to bed and I headed over to Kristens for a beer and some quick catch up. I hate that everytime we are up there it is for such a short amount of time! We spent Thanksgiving morning with Bob and Barb and headed over to my Grandparents for dinner. Can you believe I actually had the cutest coordinated outfits for us and didn't get ONE family picture! I did get one picture of Malakai, but he wouldn't take those crazy Chiefs things off his face! He told me they were his "game face!" Leila's dress matched the pattern of his vest and Josh and I had gray and navy sweaters :) He is such a trooper sometimes!

We headed back to STL early Friday morning, but not before I hit the local Walmart at 5am! I wasn't fighting for anything this year. There were a few things that if they were still there, I would get them and I ended up getting them!

Malakai stayed in KC with my dad, Lisa, and Kiera. They have a fun filled schedule like usual! Ice Skating, movies, Santa, and much, much more! I miss the little stinker! He will be back on Wednesday.

That's about all the excitement going on here! Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving! Remember, be Thankful for what and who you have in your life! It's why we are here :)


Best thing since I last blogged: This video! I love EVERY guy in here! Sometimes, when I'm by myself, I re-enact the Risky Business scene also ;)

Worst thing since I last blogged: Not seeing Twilight on opening night :( I did go last night though and it was amazing! I got Josh a Tshirt that says "I'm her Edward!"
