With our two families so close together, we try to split the holidays. Sometimes it works better than others. We went up to my parents on Wednesday and spent the afternoon doing all sorts of fun things. While Tom was taking a nap, my Mom and Ella made this house. I'm not sure whether to call it a haunted house, a thanksgiving house or a gingerbread house. Ella informed me that the cones out front are Christmas trees. Either way, it was fun. I think she ate more than actually ended up on the house, but I think that's the point. :)
Thanksgiving itself was successful. My parents made two HUGE turkeys, and ended up with a full one to spare, so we got to take home some yummy leftovers. I finally made pie from that pumpkin, and it was great! After dinner we went to my in-laws', where they were just getting started on their meal. I didn't eat anything, but Tom had like three more platefuls. I'm not sure where he stores it!
I have plenty to be grateful for at this, and every, time of year. Right now, I am feeling grateful for loving family and friends, and the gospel. I don't think life gets much better than this!
