Happy Turkey Day

I thought since today is the last day in November, I would hurry and do my Thanksgiving post! I know you're shocked after it took me almost a month to post about Halloween!!! Anyway...

This year Thanksgiving was spent at my parents house. We had the most delicious turkey dinner!!! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and one of my favorite meals! Here are a few pictures from our day.

Here I am with my cousin's cute baby, Easton:

Here is Lilly eating all by herself at the kid table! She is getting so big and independent!

My sister and I cleaned the ENTIRE kitchen (when there's over 20 people, that's A LOT of dishes!!!) We filled the dishwasher up and still washed a TON of dishes by hand. Lilly really likes to play in the water when I'm doing dishes, but we didn't have enough room for her to help. My mom is so cute and got Lilly her own tub of water to play with!!!

Happy Turkey Day from our turkey to yours!
My grandma (my mom's mom) always had her funny sayings for the holidays. Her saying for Thanksgiving was "Happy Turkey Day". My sister was at Old Navy and saw this shirt, the problem was they didn't have Lilly's size! I called all the stores in SL (since I happened to be going there) and NONE of them had her size. I then called Layton as a last option and they had it!!! I was so excited. It is a really cute shirt on a really cute girl! My grandma would be so proud!

Halloween (Yes, you read that correctly!)

I thought I better do a Halloween post before Thanksgiving arrived!!! We had dinner and pumpkin carving planned with some friends, but unfortunately their little boy got sick the day of so we had to cancel. The day before Halloween we figured we would carve the pumpkins by ourselves!

Here is Daddy cutting open the first pumpkin:
Lilly is drawing the face she wants on her pumpkin:


Scooping out the "guts". This didn't last long!
Trevor always gets mad because there are never any pictures of me (because I am the one taking the pics). So he decided a picture of me in the morning with bedhead and no makeup on would be a good time for him to take a picture!!! Men!
Lilly is ready to carve her pumpkin:
The final product:
Here we are as a Flintstone family Saturday night:

Getting ready to Trick-or-Treat in the rain!

My mom and dad wanted to come up and see us before we went Trick-or-Treating:
Lilly had fun Trick-or-Treating this year. She said "Trick-or-Treat" at most houses and always left them with a "thank you" after she got her treat! It was raining by the time we got out, so we didn't go for very long. That's OK, she didn't really understand any way. Our friends/neighbors dressed up as the Rubbles and they came Trick-or-Treating with us. Here is a picture of them:
The whole Bedrock clan:
Pebbles and Bam-Bam after getting their loot. It was hard to get a picture of both of them. In all of the other pictures, one or the other had a piece of candy in front of their face!
On the actual day of Halloween, my parents had us over for a Halloween dinner. We had a very spooky dinner by candlelight. It was a lot of fun!!!

We had chocolate cake for dessert. I think Lilly liked it, although she has more on her face then she got in her mouth!!!
I hope you all had a Spooktacular Halloween. We sure did. We had several parties this year and tons of fun! I am so excited for Thanksgiving this week. Thanksgiving dinner is one of my very favorite meals!!!
