Happy Thanksgiving!

We had our 2nd annual "Favorite Foods" Thanksgiving. Since my kids don't care for turkey or any of the other traditional sides, we sit down and create our own menu of foods we love (while still covering the major food groups).  The menu this year consisted of:

  • Lasagna
  • Salad (for me)
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Strawberries
  • Cream corn
  • Pumpkin Cheesecake

We also continued our new tradition of writing down the things we are thankful for and hanging them over the table!


Chase was thankful for me, his dad, Chloe, God, heaven and life. Chloe was thankful for Chase, her dog and birds.

Geesh.... BIRDS?? I lost to BIRDS?!?!?

When I asked her about it she just giggled and said, "Next time, Mom."

Nice.


Over the week-long break we decided to head downtown for a one-night "mini vacation," where we spent most of the time at the hotel pool:


The next morning we got up to check out Voodoo Donuts.  Oh, my....  Deliciousness!


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
