Thanksgiving 2016

Thanksgiving seemed to come quickly this year! We did school on Monday and Tuesday, then took off the rest of the week. Wednesday we made our cute turkey crafts. Zeke was even proud of his! 

Wednesday night we had yummy Thanksgiving supper at Sambo and LeLe's and the kids decorated their Christmas tree. They loved it!

Thursday we stayed home, which was nice! Jared planted the rest of the shrubs and trees in the yard and the kids helped water those, then Arabelle put our Christmas lights on the front porch and we got the kids' nutcrackers out. 

Jared went hunting Thursday evening and I was TIRED of cleaning up the kitchen over and over from all the cooking, so the kids and I went to Huddle House for supper. They were SO excited and Arabelle even put some make up on for the occasion. ;)

They had to pick the table beside the Christmas tree.

We got the biggest breakfast platter you can and added a waffle and ate it ALL.

Friday we got up and went to Pineview to join everyone. The kids were thrilled to play outside with their cousins all day.

Dirt, shovels, and dump trucks.....

Jacob was weighing some of Papaw's sweet potatoes.

TURKEY by Mamaw!

Zeke approved of the food:
 Always thankful for these two:

We had a great Thanksgiving celebrating.

Jacksonville Zoo Trip 2016

The Jacksonville Zoo gives kids free admission in November each year, so we try to go every year. This year we went on Friday, 11/11. We had a great time! 

Zoo Crew:

We met up with some friends for lunch and to see a few animals.

SnoBiz break! These were about 3x the cost of the same thing we can get in Douglas.

Arabelle with her favorite animal,....the macaw.

We all crammed into the tiny photobooth for a hilarious, confusing time. They had trouble figuring out where to look and when the pic was going to be taken. It turned out cute though!

Arabelle and Bo took my old digital camera and took these pictures. They were really excited!
