Thanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving felt pretty low-key around here which was nice. It was the Hancock's turn for Thanksgiving and Shawn's sister, Lynnette, was hosting. Through a series of different events, it turned out that many of the Hancock family couldn't come. So it was our family, Lynnette's family, Shawn's parents, and Lynnette's friend's family who didn't have anywhere to go...kinda random, but the spread of food was awesome and we had a good time. It's nice Lynnette lives so close so we didn't have to go far.
We ALWAYS do the crazy shopping after Thanksgiving. But we decided this year (kinda by default since no one was around at 5 in the morning to be with the kids), to just do it all online. Didn't really work out so well. I even begged Shawn to get up at 4:30 to go to Home Depot to score a Christmas tree and he didn't get one. So disappointing! Oh well. Hopefully next year!
Cambree had a Thanksgiving feast at school. She makes a VERY cute Pilgrim. :)
I made some rolls (like already made rolls...I just had to put them in the oven...I wish I could make yummy homemade ones) and we put papers of what we are thankful for in them. I saw the idea on TV. Then, you try and guess who said what. It was pretty easy with our little family but still a fun tradition to start. Shawn's was pretty obvious it was from him:
I'm pretty sure he meant the edible rolls I made. ;)

Bwah! It's okay if he has a thing for your buns ;-) but yeah, he'd better be talking about food. ha!

Hey, check the after-Christmas sales at places like the home stores and the craft stores. A lot of them put their Christmas trees on clearance to get rid of the stock after Christmas, and you can get a pretty good discount. And you don't have to get up at 4 a.m. to do it!
