Thanksgiving Weekend: A pictorial (with captions, because I'm a talker)

My mom and sister were vital during the power hour (last hour before you sit down to eat.)

I was extra thankful for this special guest! My Granny is only one month post-op and I really wasn't sure if she'd be able to make the trip. I was so happy to see her up and about.

Lukey checking the progress on the turkey.

I love to see my Grandpa playing trains with the boys.

The spread (it looks the same every year).

The one day of the year that you are allowed to eat more dessert than dinner.

The fam, enjoying the warm temps we had all weekend!

Grammy and Papa John arrived and we quickly whisked them away to a lights parade, recommended by a friend. We parked the car and discovered Santa, cookie-icing, and a petting zoo in the parking lot. The kids were ecstatic.

She would've stayed for hours, even though the bunnies scratched her.

After walking through the drive-thru at Wendy's, we got free glow sticks and waited for the action to begin.

Everyone was impressed - very cool event.

An example of what the floats looked like.

The next day Grammy and Papa John helped us decorate for Christmas and we watched the Buckeyes try desperately to beat Michigan. Luke was wild, as usual. Teething much?

Finally, Grandpa and Grandma Sue came for one last meal. David was so exhausted at this point that he "covered" himself and Grandpa with pillows and requested to go to bed. Luke, on the other hand, is attempting to put on his shoe, which is a request to go outside. (you know, in his diaper, at bedtime)

You silly boy, we're all exhausted! Take your bottle and go to bed! Please?!? 
Thanks to all of our family for a really nice weekend.
