I have so much to be thankful for this year for sure. I’m especially thankful for my family and getting to spend time with them!
This year it was my turn to host our Thanksgiving celebration. I made the turkey, potatoes and corn and the rest of the family brought all the other yummy side dishes (green bean casserole, ham, veggie tray, cheese/cracker tray, dessert, rolls, etc).
Lynette and Dave were the first to arrive……..although too late to help me prepare the turkey for the oven!…..Thanks Drewby for assisting me with the turkey 🙂
I helped Lynette put together the veggie and cheese/cracker trays and then we hung out playing with Jensen while the boys played Madden.
The pretty flowers Drewby brought home!
“It’s an FAO Schwartz!”……..uh no, it’s just Dave being vandalized with toys!!
Once Rachel and Tommy arrived, we decided to put together our gingerbread house. I wasn’t sure how much Jensen would get into it this year, but surprisingly she loved it! She was so excited to help out, touch everything and of course try some of the candy!

After everyone headed home, Drew and I put up the Christmas Tree! Last year we bought a real tree and because of that, we decided this year we would buy a fake tree! We are glad we experienced having a real tree once in our married life, but they are just too messy and cumbersome. Now we have a tree that will last us a few years!
We then spent the weekend in Wichita visiting Drew’s side of the family! It was so fun to get to see all the little cousins! We also helped grandma Schauner put up her Christmas tree before we left!
We had such a wonderful time seeing family. Very thankful, very blessed.
