On Wednesday, we had a half day of school. Payton got two awards at school; Moral Focus and Perfect Attendance. We've very proud of him.
Thursday, we attended Thanksgiving with Matt's side of the family at his aunt's home. She did a wonderful job hosting and everything was delicious! The boys spent a lot of time with their family members just enjoying their company.
Friday, we joined my family for a second Thanksgiving dinner where Matt was the only family member not in attendance. It was great to have everyone there. We even had two new members! My two unmarried brothers each brought their significant other. Hope, Jason's girlfriend, even dressed as a pilgrim and taught Payton how to make butter from heavy cream.
Then Hope & Payton went all out and made pilgrim hats for all of us. We've never had such a festive Thanksgiving in our family! Thanks, Hope!! (Yes, Loren always looks like that. No, not really.)
After that was family game time. That lead to craziness and laughter...and we'll just stop the blog entry there. ;)
It was an amazing weekend full of family and fun. I love the memories I have and that are being created for my children. Family truly is one of the most important investments we can make.
