Thanksgiving 2015

Monday, November 30, 2015

This year was our year to spend Thanksgiving with Stephen's family and since his brother just had a baby (3 weeks ago) and they have a large house, they hosted Thanksgiving. Stephen's cousins and aunt and uncle also joined us for the holiday (all the way from Nebraska!) so it was a full house of fun. John and Lauren did an amazing job with hosting and making the majority of the Thanksgiving dinner - I don't think it could've gone any smoother. Stephen and I LOVED us some baby cuddles with our niece, Siena and we are having some serious baby withdrawals now.

For the most part, we relaxed at their house but we did run out around 9 pm to go black Friday shopping on Thursday night after most of the people had left. We basically hit the jackpot and was able to get all of our gifts done for family which was a huge success. We were so excited that Target wasn't very crowded since we went a few hours after it had opened.

We got home late Saturday night and spent all day Sunday cleaning and decorating for Christmas - we are pooped. Once we get everything completed, I'll share some pictures of our house!

We needed some Siena time as soon as we arrived!

Stephen is officially a baby hog... and completely smitten

John did a great job with his first turkey!

Even though it doesn't feel like Thanksgiving when it's hot outside, you can't beat this view

We decided to burn off lunch with a friendly couples competition and some football

Thankfully, only the boys had to race in the kayaks

I snagged this onsie from Carter's for only $2!

Before we headed home on Saturday, we went for a walk and found this amazing cheese shop

The boys look so cute walking Siena

I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving week - I can't wait to read all about them!! So excited that it is now officially Christmas!!

Linking up with Biana.
