This fall we would occasionally pick up the lunches provided at the school. They had a turkey coloring page for Thanksgiving that you could bring in for a prize. Sloane and Soren were excited about the prizes and colored the turkeys. The prizes were candies (of course), of which they both got banana flavored Laffy Taffy. I am sorry to say that they both liked them.
With the governor’s restrictions on social gatherings, we had Thanksgiving with just the 4 of us at our house. This included a turkey smoked on the grill, homemade rolls, stuffing with sausage and apples, and 3 pies! The kids were very excited about using Adam’s great aunt Amelia’s china and fancy blue glasses. Plus 3 types of pie for dessert!
We went for a brisk walk with Nini and Papa2 in the afternoon. We missed spending the day with them cooking and eating. But we are thankful for everyone’s health!
Our neighbors started putting up their Christmas lights right after Thanksgiving and the kids enjoyed the show. Plus they are darn cute together sometimes.
It was really nice to have a long weekend at home together. With our current schedules, Adam and I have Sundays off together on a regular week. So Wednesday afternoon to Sunday evening was so nice! Soren and I got some cuddles in. And Sloane and Soren got to run around and Soren kept his leaf blower backpack on for it!
