Thanksgiving '13

We had a super fun Thanksgiving this year! We spent our morning watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade at Grandma Libby (Joey's maternal grandma)'s house, Skyping with my parents at lunch, and then we spent the rest of the day at Nik and Erin's house. Nik and Erin went all out hosting Thanksgiving dinner, with a carnival set up downstairs for the kids! They had tickets that the kids could win for playing various games, like a Ring Toss, Bucket Toss, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, etc. The kids then could redeem their tickets for prizes! We were impressed! One day, Nik and Erin are going to make awesome parents! ;) The day was fun as well as tasty. Everyone pitched in and we consumed an amazing Thanksgiving feast, and lots and lots of pie. 

With all that being said, I would have to say the first and foremost thing that Joey and I are thankful for is our family. Our parents are generous, caring, wonderful parents and even better grandparents. Our brothers and sisters are always there to help us and be our friends. Our nieces and nephews are the funniest, brightest, kids around (and are the BEST cousins you could find). And our kid? Well, Noelle's hands down the joy of our life. We have lots to be thankful for, but family always comes first. We're very blessed!

 It's not considered cheating when you are two.
