giving thanks

{our cute turkey table favors}

after work on wednesday, we headed down to my parents' house to help my mom prepare for thanksgiving.  we took leko with us, and he had a blast spending the last two days with us at "grandma and grandpa's house."

we enjoyed cooking, baking, spending time with family, and of course eating way too much.  we had a wonderful thanksgiving celebrating with the ones we love.  today we will be at home, staying far away from the craziness of black friday.  we sure are looking forward to polishing off thanksgiving left overs all weekend long too!

Dad and I really enjoyed having the three of you home for Thanksgiving. it was like old times cooking with you and watching what the kitties are getting into. The pictures of the dining room table and food like amazing. I think Leko had a good time exploring. Love the picture with him licking his chops and cream.
You guys are the best.
Love ya!
