Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, I am such a dork.  My sister and brother-in-law were here for the whole Thanksgiving holiday and I did not take a single picture.  Not a one!  I was too busy having fun I guess.  The best I can do for you is a picture of these cute turkey candle holders that Kendall and I made.  They'll be featured over at  Back to Thanksgiving.  As stated before, my sister and brother-in-law came and we had such a nice time with them.  They are so laid back and fun to hang out with and my girls are CRAZY over them.  Grace has the biggest crush in the world on Uncle Rich and every night she would ask me, "Will Uncle Richard be here in the morning?"  They let the girls play with their I-Phones and they had all kinds of cool games on them (according to Kendall).  We ate and ate (of course) and then Angie and I braved the Black Friday shopping.  We left the house at midnight and stayed out until about 7:30am.  We will probably not be doing that again!  The lines were insane!  I've never seen anything like it.  It was still fun though and it was good to get in some sister time.  We also had another first this year and that was frying a turkey.  Luckily, Richard had done it before and was able to guide us a little better.  The boys had to do it in the garage because it was raining and it made the whole garage smell like frying oil!  It was worth it though because that turkey was DELICIOUS!  Then the boys went to see Catholic High play in Danville on Friday night and Angie and I stayed with the girls.  We were so tired we just sat on the couch and stared at the TV.  Man, we were zonked.  I am going to sleep like the dead tonight.  I'm super thankful that I'm tired from having fun and not tired from working. It's a much more fun type of exhaustion, don't you think?
