Happy Thanksgiving!

We didn't have any plans today until dinner time so we were able to spend a much needed relaxing day at home. I am so incredibly thankful for my family. I take what I have for granted a lot, especially being a stay at home mom and spending so much time with my children. I just want to take a moment to be thankful for this opportunity. So many moms would give anything to be in my situation. I pray that if this is a desire of yours that God will make that happen.

We started off our morning with chocolate chip pancakes. What's a few extra calories going to hurt on a day like this?Don't let his enthusiasm fool ya, he ate almost 4 pancakes.

This little turkey gobbled some up too.

We were bad and made a trip out this morning to Big Lots. I really did feel terrible because I can remember working retail and dreading working around the holidays, everyone in there was super nice and friendly. At least they were making the most of it.

When Cameron was taking a morning nap, Cooper and I played with Play-Doh. I got a little creative.

The whole purpose for Big Lots was to get things to do this to our front door. Our door sits back and is enclosed in stone so we wanted to something to stick out. It looked good in the daylight. I was going to take a picture this evening when we got home but it had fallen down.

I have no idea what got into me today, maybe it was the day of nothingness going on, but we got to my in-law's for dinner and I realized I had totally forgotten to make the corn casserole. We didn't really need it so it wasn't that big of a deal. I just can't believe it slipped my mind.

Cameron was all over their brick fireplace, he wore me out tonight.

We rarely get any pictures together so I got ourselves a self-portrait.

These two are too much. This is what Cameron does anytime you point the camera at him and Cooper is of course doing what Cameron is doing.

Our yummy spread, along with some grabby hands. We did have some green beans in there, gotta have a little green, but there was no room at the table. I wish I had a picture of Cameron after mashed potatoes, a face only a mother could love.

Cooper was playing with Steve's phone and Mr. Curious wanted to know what was going on.

That quickly turned into a game of I'm gonna pester the snot fire out of my big brother.

I love, love, love watching my boys together. They are at times just too cute for words.

I brought the boys home this evening and put them to bed while Steve headed to Toys R Us to brave some Black Friday shopping. It is 10:11 pm and he is out of the store and on his way home with everything on our list. Way to go Steve!!!

Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!!!
