Thanksgiving Recap 2013

On Thursday, we spent Thanksgiving morning at home watching the Macy's parade on TV. The kids LOVED it this year. Jacob and Rebecca loved seeing the balloons and the different floats. Jacob keeps talking about the different floats he recognized. LOL

In the afternoon, we went to my mom and dad's house for dinner. There were 14 of us there this year...our 5, my mom, my dad, my sister and brother who are still young enough to live at home, my brother, his wife, and their 3 kids. We had a great dinner cooked by my parents with a lot of good conversation and laughs. 

stuffing, green beans, corn casserole, turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, roll and peach wine! YUMMY! 
We also celebrated Rebecca's 7th birthday that day, and my niece Lacie's 9th birthday which was a couple of days before Thanksgiving. I made each of them their own we had birthday cake for dessert :)

We took a lot of family photos! 

Hubby and I during dinner! I love this photo of us! 

Benjamin LOVED his food! Especially the sweet potatoes!  

Birthday cousins! 

The 4 kids...we took almost 10 pics of us and these are just a few....My brother Josh (13), my sister Mary (17), Me, and my brother Joe (29). I am the oldest of the 4. 

The original family....Joe, Me, my dad, my mom, Josh and Mary.

My parents and the grandkids... (from left to right---Alex (6), Jacob (4), Ethan (2), my dad, Benjamin (1.5), my mom, Rebecca (7), and Lacie (9). I think this is the first picture they have ever taken with all the grandkids together in it. 

Overall, it was a great day! Good food, good company, and lot of love to go around! 

How was your Thanksgiving holiday?
