Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! We had a pretty low key day here at the Smith household. Well…low key in that we got to stay home and relax with family. But we were full of life with lots of house guests. Grandpa has been staying with us for a week, and Auntie Erin, Uncle Jared, and cousins arrived late last night.

The boys were already in bed when the fam arrived, so Elias was literally bursting with excitement when he saw them this morning. There was no waiting period. The kids got right down to playing.

I started cooking dishes early in the morning, and then a bit before noon we started getting the turkey ready. This is how Nathan felt about it:

P1200848We got in some rest too. Simon napped, and Elias and Sonya sat on the bed and looked at the leap pad together.

P1200853We all sat down together for dinner and enjoyed the company.
