Giving Thanks

My parents and grandpartents came to our house for Thanksgiving yesterday.

Elijah was my big helper in the kitchen preparing for our Thanksgiving dinner.

We did as much as we could the day before so we didn't have too much to do the morning of.. Elijah helped by trimming all the green beans for me and mashing the sweet potatoes!

We ate around our table in our cozy little kitchen.
Geoff deep fried the turkey and it was delicious!  
We also had mashed potatoes, green beans, Brussels sprouts, sweet potato casserole, cranberry salad, rolls, a rice dressing and bread dressing, With apple and pumpkin pie for dessert.

After dinner Ethan did was the rest of us were wishing we could do. =)
Elijah thoughtfully covered his brother with a blanket and let him sleep.

Later on the boys had some play time with daddy and we set the camera timer and tried to get some family pictures.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and time with the ones you love.
