A mini-thanksgiving break

Of course everyone and their mother (literally) will be recapping their Thanksgiving day/weekend and what better way 
than to link your recap with Becky's blog?! Be sure to check it out!

I know I grumbled and griped a lot via social media about ONLY getting Thursday off last week, plus having to work all weekend, 
but I survived. I still got to eat plenty of turkey and pumpkin pie, still got to spend time with my family -namely my sister 
who was in town- and still found time to put up all our Christmas decor!

Happy Thanksgiving morning from Jared, Erin & our lil turkey friend on the shelf ;)

My beautiful sister-- her hubby had to work at the last minute and didn't get to come in town :( 
We missed him!

 My cousin and her new family of 3!

Going through my pictures I took about 40 of the baby, and about 10 non-baby.
Haha, I guess that's what happens when there is only one little in the family!

 See? Lots of pics of this cute little face!

Annual CRAZY group photo. Please note the flying baby and Jared as Popeye ;)

It was a little strange only having one place to visit on Thanksgiving this year, as Jared's family was out of town that whole week. It was nice, however, to come home after stuffing our faces, relax a bit and then drag ALL our Christmas stuff out. Our home is officially a winter wonderland.

PS- You still have 'til the end of today to enter my giveaway for a free canvas print! 
Don't forget! ;)
