Thanksgiving 2010

We have so much to be thankful for! Thanksgiving week started with quite the snowstorm for Western Washington. Enough snow to cancel school on Tuesday and Wednesday so we were able to start our Thanksgiving weekend early this year. On Tuesday the boys and I made coffee filter snowflakes and baked sugar cookies. By Wednesday everyone was a little stir-crazy but we kept busy by cleaning the house! I'm happy to say Mom and Dad safely made it over the pass which I was especially thankful for since they haven't been in town the past couple years. Plus, they had the ingredients for most of the feast fixings!
On Thursday morning Mom and I kept busy baking pumpkin and apple pies while all the boys headed to the park for some serious sledding! Once the pies were in to bake, Mom and I went down to watch the fun.
Later in the day, Lisa, Guy, Amanda and Ryan (Guy's son) joined us for Thanksgiving dinner. What a glorious feast of food!!
After dinner, the 2nd Annual Connect Four Tournament began in full force! After some fierce ten team double-elimination bracket play, Troy was once again crowned the Connect Four Champion!
It was a wonderful holiday spent with family. Hope everyone else had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
