Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! Today has been a whirlwind of a day! I was woken up by Brett this morning in the most annoying way ever! I had to get up just to get him to leave me alone! Hehe. He's the worst alarm clock ever. We got ready and went to my Dad and Shar's house first. We ate turkey, mashed potatoes, rolls and more. It was delicious! We stayed there for a while before having to run. We had 3 families we had to visit today. That's not a very fun Thanksgiving rushing around all day, but it was good to see everybody!

After my Dad's house, we stopped to my Mom and step-dad's house! My sister's family was over there and we weren't able to stay very long, but we made up a few plates to go and Brett ate a giant chunk of cherry cheesecake.. ugh. I could have killed him! Haha! We ran home to pick up Peter, drop off our trunk of food and head straight over to his parent's for dinner! Brett snapped a few shots outside too!

This was Brett's mom's spread. It was so pretty. The dinner was delicious! I seriously stuffed myself today full of delicious food and now we have an entire fridge full of leftovers. My favorite things this year were the sweet potatoes and the pumpkin pie. Mmmm. Love Thanksgiving food!

(maggie is so cute)
I told everyone we had to get our family photo taken, so Brett obviously had to be my fill in for the test shot. Hehe!

When I was looking at these later, I was like.. Brett and Peter's faces are up to no good. See, I know these two boys better than anybody.. and look at those devious grins. Then I noticed Grandma's head... hahahah. Boys.


(this was our silly picture, teehee!)
After we ate desserts and dropped Grandma off home, the five of us drove out to Grand Rapids to see A Christmas Carol in IMAX 3D. I love 3D animated movies! It was a good movie, for sure, but it was scary! And depressing for most of the movie! But it was still really good. Now I'm in Christmas mode. Thanksgiving pretty much marks the end of the autumn season for me... even though I heard Michigan is supposed to have a green Christmas this year. That bums me out! Christmas is the only time of year that I actually do want snow! Let's hope for a white Christmas at least... and then it can go back to green! :D
