Since Ben had to work through Wednesday and I was scheduled to work Tuesday and Wednesday nights, we decided we should just stay home for Thanksgiving. It turned out that I worked Tuesday night and then more than half of the patients went home on Wednesday, so I was called off late afternoon on Wednesday. I was not disappointed - even though the holiday pay would have been great. I still prefer my family and home to making money - ha. :)
As life is so busy, it was nice to have a low-key Thanksgiving with just our crew. Of course we missed our extended family, but it was relaxing to just stay at our home.
The kids were all assigned a part of our Thanksgiving feast. Of course I still had to help each child - with the exception of Miles. Miles was on his own for the pumpkin pie. Anyways, I'll just let the pictures show our Thanksgiving:
We had a pretty chill morning - I went for a run. Ben, myself, Miles, and Brigham went for a walk. We watched the Macy's parade on and off. Then it was time to play some Kubb.
Team Brigham succeeded in beating Team Wilson multiple times. :) It was good to get out on a nice Thanksgiving day. Then it was back in to the kitchen to finish up all the food . . .
The rest of the day was spent watching Jack Frost (tradition), playing Harry Potter Clue (Jonas won!), playing Spoons, eating pie, etc.
It was a good day and we all have much to be thankful for . . . especially our family, friends, and faith!
