We then went to Missouri where both of our parents live. On Wednesday, we just relaxed, and got food ready for the next day. We went outside to take Reid & Caeden's annual picture by the tire swing. We started this on Caeden's first Thanksiving and continue it each year. Here is a progression of the pictures!
On Thursday, we had the traditional Thanksgiving meal, made by my mom and I. Here's Caeden, helping with the rolls.
This was the first year Caeden got to eat an actual Thanksgiving meal. The first year he was only a baby. And his second year, he took a nap through the meal. So we had to get pictures at his first Thanksgiving lunch.
After we let our HUGE meal settle into our tummies, and we took our naps, we headed outside for a family flag football game!! This involved my immediate family, and also my extended family (uncles, cousins, etc.) Just for the record, the team Reid and I were on, won!!
Around 9:00 that night, my sister and I headed to Walmart for some Black Friday sales. The sale started at 10:00 and we were home by 10:45! So great!
On Friday, we spent the day at Reid's parents house and watched the Razorbacks play! It was a sad game, so we won't talk much about that...
Then on Saturday, we went to the Bass Pro Shop to get pictures with the real Santa!! My family has been going to get pictures with this Santa for the last 15 years, so this is a fun tradition! Just to note, Santa normally looks a little happier...maybe he's getting a little too old... After the pictures, we love just walking around Bass Pro, getting on boats, looking at all the animals, and shopping.
We then went to Hallmark to buy Caeden's and our ornament for 2011. Here are Reid & Caeden trying on dancing hats.
On Sunday, we spent some more time at the Pierce's, packed up, and left. It was a great Thanksgiving break! We had a good mixture of busyness and relaxation. Happy (belated) Thanksgiving to everyone!
