Turkey Day!

We had a great Thanksgiving today! We started the day with cinnamon rolls, bacon, coffee and orange juice. Jax was a great helper!

After breakfast we cleaned the house and worked on cooking a Thanksgiving feast. Jax and I took a break from things to head to Ryan's grandparents house. Jax had a great time playing with this baby. He LOVES babies and I can't wait to give him a sibling. He's going to be such a great big brother!

This is the sisters/cousins with our little ones. From left to right- Ryan's sister Val, his cousin Amanda, his cousin Aly with Madison, and his sister Jenny with Elijah. And of course his wife, me :) with my sweet boy.

The patriarch, Grandpa Del giving a little speech to everyone

We left Ryan's grandparent's house just before they sat down to eat. Unfortunately they had planned to eat about an hour before my family, so Jax and I couldn't do both. We headed back to my parent's house to finish up the cooking and get some food in our bellies! Here's all the "kids" (cousins) on my mom's side. Bottom row, left to right is my brother Ryan, cousins Joey, Jacob, Elena and Emma. Top row, left to right are my cousins Stephanie, Nate and Kevin. Steph and Nate's daughter Willow was taking a nap so she's the only one not in this picture.

My mom and I made lots of food and even tried a few new recipes. It all turned out super yummy!

Of course, the main event... the TURKEY! Doesn't it look devine?!

With all the excitement, Jax didn't get much of a nap today so he was exhausted before we even ate dinner. Elena had a great time playing with and taking care of him and he loved snuggling with her.

He got a second wind a little while later and he had a great time playing with his Uncle Ry!

I am SO thankful for this little guy. He lights up my life!
