The Wilson's Turkey Day

I wanted to write this post on Friday or even Saturday and I knew I wanted to share some of the pictures I took but I seem to have temporarily (so I hope) misplaced the cord to upload the pictures. So since I still haven't found it I decided I had better write this now before it is way to late!

Every year for Thanksgiving Dave and I alternate which family to spend it with. This year was with my family at my Grandma's house. We loaded up the kids around 11 and headed an hour and fifteen minutes west. Of course we had to go over the river and through the woods but we finally arrived just in time for lunch. The whole family was there except for one of my cousins who lives in Florida and wasn't able to get the time off work to come home and his Dad, my Uncle, that passed away this summer. We could all tell that it was really affecting my Grandma and my Aunt Nan but we all did our best to keep their spirits up.

The food was GREAT as always, and there was way to much to choose from but that just meant we all had some kind of leftovers to take with us. The best part of the whole day for me was when my 13 year old brother KJ took my kids and my cousins sons outside to play some football. It wasn't long before some of the adults took notice of the game being played in the front yard and had to join in. Of course I have some really cute pictures of the game that I wanted to share but you will have to do without for now. The game itself was a pretty sad one, Emma had the best play of the whole game by running for a touchdown.

Around 5pm Dave and I loaded the kids back into the car for the trip to his moms house. Both Dave and I had to work Friday but the Babysitter somehow gets it off and my MIL is the only person I know that also doesn't have to work. So she got to keep the kids the entire holiday weekend. Which meant that Dave and I were able to go out and have some fun this past weekend but that is for another post.

By the time Dave and I arrived home it was after 9 and we were both exhausted so it was straight to bed for us.
