Thanksgiving Recap

Wow, I cannot believe Thanksgiving is over and now Christmas is almost here! Russell and I had a great time with our family. Look at this turkey! It tasted just as good as it looks!
 We had a new addition this year for Thanksgiving dinner.....
 Meet Marcie, Lauren's new puppy! Isn't she cute? We all enjoyed holding and cuddling her!
 Russell carving the turkey
 My sweet nephew, Logan and I before the Thanksgiving feast! Ha!
 This is the brie en croute I made. It turned out well and tasted pretty good. I also made green bean bundles, which I call bundles of love! Ha!
 We all loved the sign Lauren made for Thursday!
 Sweet Russell and I...I just love him!
 Lauren and her Marcie
 Pretty Kelly and me
 With our Mama
Later that night, we followed tradition and watched "Christmas Vacation" and laughed til we cried. So fun!
 Russell and I just adore our nephew and niece. On Friday morning, Logan and Lauren rode bikes and I walked. They fortunately kept riding around me while I kept up with them! ha! It was fun.
 Lauren and me. Lauren is wearing her adorable Christmas shirt we got her. It's supposed to be scented and I think it smells like gingerbread! :)

Later Friday we headed to Russell's parent's house.
 Aubrey, Phyllis and Connie
 Aubrey had been singing, "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth". So cute!
 Lori and me...Lori is expecting her baby in a few weeks. We are so ready to meet Peyton!
Russell and Ricky after a huge meal!

We left this morning to come back home. Tomorrow consists of cleaning house and possibly decorating for Christmas! Christmas time is officially here, everyone! Let the season begin!

Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his love endures forever. Psalm 107:1
