A Fab Thanksgiving
We had a great Thanksgiving this year. Bampa fried the turkey, and it was gooo-ood. Lexi mostly helped entertain the kids while the rest of us were preparing the food, but here she is stirring the pomegranite salad.
Isaac and Fin were a big help getting the table set...or not.

And here is another shot, because I just felt in both shots some people looked good, and some people didn't.
After dinner, we drove up to North Lake and had a nice walk around the lake before heading home for pie. That night, me, Lexi, and Keith didn't go to bed and headed over to Walmart at 11:00 pm for their big sale. It was crowded, but fun, and we got some good deals. The checkout was a nightmare, however, and we didn't get home until around 2:30 am. Keith headed upstairs where he tried, unsuccessfully, to sleep for an hour, while Lexi and I just stayed up downstairs talking and getting a little bit silly. At 3:30, we left with every single family member to go to Target. We were one of the few people I saw there who had drug their kids out of bed, but none of us was willing to stay home and miss out on the mad rush, so they got to come with us. And really, they had been excited and looking forward to it for weeks.
After Target, we split off from my parents and Lexi, and Keith and I went to Sport Chalet, where we got an awesome deal on some sweet bikes for ourselves for "Christmas." (We've already started using them--I just didn't see the point in storing them in the garage until after Christmas, especially since we are going out of town for Christmas and are not taking them with us to "open" there.) Anyway, I absolutely love my bike, and will post some pictures of it later. I think I almost love my bike as much as Pee-wee Herman loved his bike.
Saturday morning before the Keels had to go, we went to see a matinee showing of Tangled, which we all really enjoyed. Then it was time to say goodbye until Christmas.
I stay at home with 4 beautiful children--3 girls and 1 boy. Sareny is 9, Isaac is 6, Finley is 4, and baby Keeley is one! I've been married to my best friend for 15 years now, and we're still happy. Life is beautiful!
