Another Thanksgiving has come and gone! I can't believe it...as the same every year. Thanksgiving is really my favorite holiday. I love how big and ridiculous our Hammett family Thanksgiving is. We only had a small crowd of 36 (I think) this year. We have had 58 before. Do you know how I know this? We have to sign in on a roster before we can eat. I think this was the third year we have done this and I stinkin' love it. It is so fun to look back and see who attended. We know have several family members who have passed away, and to see their own hand-writing and remember the Thanksgivings we did share with them is so special. We did our usual....cooked....ate....ate....ate...napped....ate....played games....ate....wondered why we hurt so much....ate it off.
With the good cooks we have in our family, you really can't help but over-eat.
I made Natalee a quick little dress and I absolutely LOVed it! It was just a t-shirt that I embroidered the word "gobble" on and then I added two ruffles to the bottom of the shirt. The best part, she can wear it again next year...and I can always just add another ruffle if it is too short. This whole dress probably took me about an hour and a half! Easy-peasy!
See, isn't it cute?!
My little turkeys were SO adorable this year. I am so sad that I didn't get a picture of the three of them together. :( I am still getting used to this whole "3 kid thing."
(Aiden & Barrett)
I can't get over how cute their little turkey butts looked!
Barrett's shirt said, "Mommy's Little Turkey" and Aiden's shirt said, "Gobble Gobble Gobble." I love that they matched...but not really. :)
I made little treats for Natalee's friends at Boys Ranch. I found this idea on pinterest and loved how easy it was to make! A bag of bugels and a couple boxes of runts completed these "spilt cornucopias!" Thank you pinterest for another success.
SO fun and easy!
Natalee colored this picture for Thanksgiving. She loves to color and really does a great job! She even colored in the border! Not too bad for a 2 3/4 year old. I loved how she chose different colors to color the feathers with. Yes, I am writing a paragraph on how cute my daughter colors. I love her.
I usually take tons of pictures on Thanksgiving and well, frankly, all the time, but this year I didn't. I guess feeding the twins and keeping up with Natalee was all I had time for this year. I have so much to be thankful for again this year. I know that I am truly blessed.
