Thanksgiving 2015

I can't believe Thanksgiving has already come and gone! It makes me sad that time flies by so quickly, but oh so excited for all of the fun things I have planned for the holidays this year!
 
But first things first, lets talk about our Thanksgiving!
 
We spent Wednesday night at my parents house where Abigail helped my mom in the kitchen and I busted my ass on my dad's Segway board. After a near hospital visit, prescription strength ibuprofen and a bruised ego, we settled in for the night with a movie (Self/Less... eh.) and called it an early night.
 
My sister hosted Thanksgiving at her house this year, but we all split up coking duties so it didn't fall all on her. I'm not entirely sure why, but we didn't end up with a single family, food or table setting photo but about six dozen photos of Abigail.
 
We got to my sisters house around 11:30am (Billy was on partial Turkey duty, so we needed to be there early) and decided to put Abigail down for her nap shortly after that. She ended up sleeping for four and a half hours (my nephew has blackout curtains and I'm almost certain she thought it was nighttime) and didn't wake up until almost 5pm. Her sleeping that long meant I got to eat my entire Thanksgiving meal toddler free! Hot food, no shoveling bites between breaths and no whiny about eating vegetables! It was a Thanksgiving miracle! ;)
 

We've made it a bit of a tradition to take all of our pumpkins and gourds from Halloween and bring them to Thanksgiving to play baseball with after dinner. It is always so, so much fun, a total mess and we end up sore for days after, but it's worth it ;)
 
After waking up, I tried to get Abigail dressed and she threw an absolute end of the world tantrum. After I was sure she was going to pop blood vessels in her face from screaming so loudly, the only thing that would calm her down was going outside and taking pictures... no, I'm not kidding. She loves taking pictures.  Behold our meltdown ending photo shoot...
 
 
We ended Thanksgiving by playing a couple of round of Cards Against Humanity (because that's appropriate) and then taking it outside for a couple of walks and a nerf gun fight!
 
It was such a great day, followed up by a fantastic weekend spent online Christmas shopping (almost completely done!) and watching Christmas movies! Hope you all had a great holiday weekend with your friends and family! XOXO.
