Weekend Review: Thanksgiving (Thoughts for Thursday)

It feels like Thanksgiving was months ago and yet only a week has passed! This is our holiday weekend:

We started the day before turkey day with hot chocolate.
 We visited Santa (all smiles)!

Picked out our yearly nutcrackers (at 60% off)

We drove to my parents on Thanksgiving morning. 

See those cute little moccs below? I won them from the awesome Kelley at Love Like Crazy and Freshly Picked! KC was pretty thrilled with them too.

We hadn't announced dinner was ready and this little guy was already sitting and waiting patiently. For a good five minutes. It is really not like him to wait.

 After lunch naps

KC and I visited my grandfather in the hospital and the boys stayed home to play Wii. Once home, everyone was tucked in bed.

Friday started with a playground trip.

 And a thermos full of hot cocoa (thanks to Grandpa).

Grandma had to work so we met her at our favorite lunch spot.

And then headed to the science center to see the new aquarium. 

We had another feast Saturday morning before heading back home.
Thanksgiving weekend was as wonderful as I expected, now let's roll on into Christmas!!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well. I read a lot of great recaps and I'm looking forward to a few more! Linking up with the wonderful Natalie and Annie today for Thoughts on Thursday (Thanksgiving is by far my favorite Thursday)!
