What a great Thanksgiving we had! My wonderful husband did it all! We started our morning watching the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade. The kids favorite part was the great big Spider man float. Mine of course was the YO GABBA GABBA float! DJ lance..... you rock! Then we played and waited for the Thanksgiving feast to begin.
And boy was it good! Caden devoured 3 plates full of turkey, stuffing, potatoes and cranberry. They it was off to bed for a nice long nap (Everyone took part in that.) Then we watched football and played some more. After that the kids and I made sugar cookie turkey hands, which again was a recipe from Nickjr.com. They don't like pie and I wasn't going to make a pie for me to eat all by myself since Chris has his banana cream pie. So cookies it was. Only problem was the hands blew up 2 times the size! I should have done only 2 cookies per sheet but did five. I had to cut them apart. They looked like huge boxing gloves! But it still was fun decorating them. The next day Chris took the leftover turkey and made some great turkey soup! Thanksgiving was wonderful! One of the best yet!
