Thanksgiving 2014

We celebrated another fabulous Thanksgiving Day once a gain this year.

We were all in a cheerful, fun loving moods and I it's safe to say it was one of our best Thanksgiving days ever.

The whole gang arrived around noon; the Savage Hustads, Grandma and Grandpa Coleman and their dog Ferggie, Uncle Andy, and a course the Savage Johnsons with our dog Shelby.  It was a full house.

Dinner turned out well.
Two turkeys were cooked, mine in the oven and JJ's on the grill.  Everything tasted oh so good, with the exception of the item.  
Mr. Cole didn't seem to care for JJ's spicy sweet potatoes so poor Emily and I had to dodge bits of potatoes being flung our way while Mr. Cole tried to flick it off his hands by shaking them.  It only happened a couple times, till he gave up trying to eat them.

The girls were kind enough to write up a schedule of the day's events for us, complete with a scheduled nap time or turkey coma time as we called it.  Other scheduled events were game time, pie time, thanks jar time.
It sure helped the kids from being to antsy between events and motivated them to help out more with clean up and set up in order to move out to more fun activities.   Definitely something I think we will continue to do in the future.

All in all it was an enjoyable day!
