My side of the family actually had our Thanksgiving celebration early this year. We wanted to make sure that the weather was good enough for everyone to travel in and we also wanted to space things out so there wasn't so much turkey and not enough appetite for it. It worked out amazing. We hosted this year and I loved it. Sixteen people do fit in the house comfortably! I just wish that I took more photo's to prove it! All in all it was a blessed day.
I have been working on a few crafts with the boy I nanny. His family is having family from out of town for Thanksgiving, so we have been working on some holiday crafts. These are the place cards for their dinner. I can't say my on Thanksgiving dinner will be this crafty, especially since I'm not hosting it, but I wanted to share. The boy is only four and loves to make special things for his family and friends. I do believe that his family will enjoy these on their Thanksgiving table.
I'm looking forward to the upcoming week and another plateful of turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. YUM!
