Thanksgiving Festivities

I hope that you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving.
Both of our families were here so it was busy, busy, busy!

But we did have a great time.
Here are some pictures of our Thanksgiving Festivities.

Table decorations.
It didn’t turn out how I wanted but I pretty much just threw it together as everyone was showing up so this is how it ended up! haha

Travis got me the flowers last weekend so they worked out well in the center of the table.
The turkey worked well now. I bought some small real pumpkins and scattered them. I bought fake acorns and scattered them and everyone thought they were real. Had my candles and then also glittered some more small pumpkins.

One of my new glittered pumpkins. I let everyone pick their favorite and take it home with them.

Host and hostess.

My sister captured me setting the table.

Here is a picture of the place setting. I had my mom bring her silver chargers and then I used the china that used to be my grandmother’s. The napkins were made by my friend’s mom for my bridal shower so I brought those out as well.

Bunch of random pictures to show what everyone was doing while the food was cooking.
All the men in the living room watching football… surprise, surprise!
Cooper trying to occupy himself.
And the ladies in the kitchen by the stove.

For some reason, our stairs became a big hit as a slide during the weekend. We were all going down on our butts or even head first. Travis decided that he needed to get a box and go down faster so here he goes. He looks a little scared doesn’t he?! lol

Here is Cooper crawling down the steps head first. Guess me and his dad shouldn’t have taught him this! haha

We had our first snow on Thanksgiving night. It was really pretty when we woke up and the dogs loved to play in it!

If we went out shopping on Black Friday it was pretty early so we decided we would head to post and do a little bowling. It was a lot of fun!

With my favorite little man.

Waiting for our turn.

Cooper LOVES to bowl. And he is really good at it.
He is super fast though. He drops that ball, turns around running back with his tongue sticking out of his mouth every time, stand at attention as we watching his ball and then stands at the ball return staring into it waiting for his ball to come back so he can do it all over again.

My whole family left on Saturday but Travis’ family stayed an extra day. We all headed to the movies Saturday and then Sunday morning headed up to Louisville to our favorite store Tickled Pink before they headed home. We got some stuff there so I will share what we got with you guys later.

I was planning on getting all my Christmas decorations up yesterday but that didn’t happen! At all! I only cleaned the house a little and got all my fall stuff put away. My house is full of the boxes with my decorations in it so that is my mission today! Have to get started on it, especially since my Holiday Open House party starts Wednesday, which I hope you will join me for!!

So I hope you guys had a fun filled Thanksgiving with all your loved ones!
I also hope that you got more Christmas decorating done then I did!

Holiday Open House Party starts Wednesday! Open your house and show us your decorations!
Catch a Glimpse party will be back on Thursday as well so hope you have some fun stuff to link up! 🙂
