We started our Thanksgiving holiday watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. The natives got restless and some how it turned into a circus in the play room.
Davis got hot and took off his shirt. He said he wanted us to see his ribs.
I had the easiest assignment for Thanskgiving dinner.
A tasty green salad with cranberries, bacon and cheese.
My cute sisters came with us to Mike's brother's house for dinner.
Cherie was being shy.
All the food was so yummy, especially the dessert. Tess ate several pieces of pie.
Collin had some too. He really liked Rachael's lemon cream pie.
Saturday we bought our christmas tree at Harmon's and set it up.
Harmon's sells trees for $35! That is such an awesome deal compared to what we used to pay when I was growing up. I remember the trees costing upwards of $80, and most of the needles would fall off as we were taking it into the house. Hawaii is a long way for a christmas tree to travel.
The kids crave crafty things as much as I do. Davis suggested we make sugar cookies.
I let Tess and Davis frost their own cookies. Davis ate all of his before I even got a picture. Tess' cookies were two inches thick with frosting.
I took my time and decorated some gingerbread people for one of my neighbors. There were three girl cookies and three boy cookies. Each of them had a different colored clothes and their initial in the middle.
I also made a snowman family for another neighbor. The girls were outfitted with a purse and necklace. The guys had a scarf and tie. I am actually excited to make more cookies to try different outfits and designs.
Sunday night we had chicken soup for dinner. I have alphabet cookie cutters and never use them. I thought we would change up our noodles and do the alphabet.
The alphabet noodles turned out just as yummy as straight ones and they were fun to eat.
I know there were a lot of food pictures, but it was Thanksgiving weekend!
