Did you have a good turkey day? We did! On Wednesday evening Jeremy and Connor went to pick up the turkey we'd ordered from the Honey Baked Ham store. See, we were trying to have a low stress Thanksgiving since we have two kids and cooking a big meal while taking care of them is a major feat. So we figured we'd eliminate the biggest part of the meal by getting our turkey prepared elsewhere. However, Jeremy and Connor got to the store and were told "Uh, sorry, our supplier didn't deliver any turkeys to anywhere on the west coast." What??? We're turkey-less??? The day before Thanksgiving??? After Jeremy threw a fit (yay, Jeremy! I'm rubbing off on him! LOL), we got a $50 ham for FREE! Anyway, I still wanted turkey for Thanksgiving so we scrambled to find a fresh one within a 50 mile radius. Turns out that they had tons of them at the Safeway in Louisville so we were able to get one and turkey day was saved! :) My Dad, Sue, Jeremy's Mom Willy and her husband Mark were all here to help us enjoy all the food. Jeremy took this picture of Connor and I through our front window - we were watching for Grandma Willy!

And we can't leave Logan out, though he slept through most of the preparations and the entire meal on Thanksgiving! Here he is after a bath...

Friday morning Jeremy got up super early and waited in line at Best Buy to buy us a new tv. The tv in our living room has been dying for months; it shuts off randomly and can only be turned back on by hitting the side of it. Connor has watched us do it so many times that he thinks that's how all tv's are turned on - ugh! So after waiting outside in the cold from 3:30 to 5 am Jeremy bought our early family Christmas present alongside hundreds of other tech-crazed Black Friday shoppers. I only wish I could've been there - I love Black Friday shopping! I know, there are too many people and you have to get up soooo early but that's what makes it so fun! And I can't pass up a good bargain :) I can't wait until next year!

Here are just a few of the things we are thankful for this year: Jeremy, Nikki, Connor, Logan, Bailey, Grandmas and Grandpas, family, friends, love, health, jobs, home, preschool, baby giggles, toddler screams, milky smiles, So-Do-La-Fa time, bubble baths, "pizza", "people", and "baby Logan". The ones in quotes are from Connor, of course!
