Thanksgiving 2013

Our Thanksgiving this year was nice and quiet. We really didn't do much. We ate the usual turkey, stuffing, potatoes, rolls and pie. And we stuffed ourselves silly. I just love Thanksgiving dinner. It makes my tummy happy.

I didn't take very many pictures, of course. Oh well. I did get pictures of some cute chocolate turkeys Hailey helped me make. (Thanks to you Pinterest!)

Making food look good is not my forte, so don't judge! When it comes to food my only goal is that it is edible and tastes good. :)

We spent Thanksgiving with my family this year. We stayed home and enjoyed each others company. I did make it out with my mom on Black Friday for a small amount of shopping- yay Joann's! I was actually done with Christmas shopping for both Hailey and Keira before Thanksgiving this year. Amazing!

Kyle was able to enjoy two days off, giving him a four day weekend. It was a much needed break. He spent a good deal of his time playing Legos with Hailey and Keira. Kyle's favorite way to unwind and relax is to build with Legos. And he loves to share that with his girls.

Keira enjoyed herself. She spent some time copying Kyle. Kyle would push Legos around, looking for a specific piece. When he found one he pulled it out and dropped it on the ground. Then he dug around for another piece. Keira did the same. She pushed Legos around, pulled out a piece, dropped it on the ground and then went back for more.  

I just love these pictures of Kyle and Keira. It always warms my heart to see Kyle enjoying spending time with our girls.

One thing I love about Hailey's preschool are the songs they learn. She came home singing funny songs at Halloween. My favorite was one about pumpkins falling on their rumpkins. Clever. This month Hailey learned a Thanksgiving song about one smart turkey waving his feathers. I got it on video just for you. But more for me. :) The camera shake is courtesy of Keira.

Here's the translation:

There's a big fat turkey down in Grandpa's farm, 
and he thinks he's mighty smart.
He waves his tail in a big fan
and he struts around all day.

You can hear him gobble at the girls and boys, (gobble, gobble, gobble)

I'm pretty sure there's more to it, but she can't ever remember more than that. That's ok, it's still cute in my book.

We enjoyed our lazy weekend, I hope you did too! Does it have to end? Come Christmas, come!
