Happy Thanksgiving!

We have had a fun, relaxed day here around the house. I was able to take a couple naps during the day, since Moriah was up five times in the night, (before I brought her into bed with me and she kept me awake for a while longer before drifting off, and then gettting woken up by Keenan who was also sleeping in my room).

Mom, Jeff and I prepared dinner together, which was fun! We decided to do the turkey in Mom's "NuWave" oven (as seen on TV), and it turned out really well - nice and juicy! Jeff made his famous mashed potatoes and we also had green bean casserole, Mom's yummy sweet potato casserole, stuffing, rolls and pumpkin cobbler for dessert. Myrtle was going to join us, but ended up sick, so we really missed her. We took her some food anyway.

This evening we decided to decorate a ginger bread house together. Let's just say, while it was fun, it didn't go exactly as we had expected! The frosting was Really runny and the house collapsed once before we finally got it stuck together enough to decorate! The windows and doors sort of ran down the walls, but Isaac and Keenan had a great time putting lots of candy on it anyway, and we think it turned out cute!

We made some beignets this morning!

Isaac thought they were pretty good!

One more full day with our family before they head home! They may brave the crowds and do some Black Friday shopping in the morning, we'll see...
