We had a fun and relaxing Thanksgiving yesterday.

Mom, Jeanna, and Elizabeth all came over, and we ate until we couldn't eat any more!

Caylie changed out the chalk board in our school room/dining room for the occasion!

Before we all sat down for dinner, we had to get a group picture! (Caylie and Elizabeth were comfy in their PJ bottoms!)

I traded out with Elizabeth, so that everyone could be in a picture!

Corey prayed before our meal, and then Carson wanted to add his own prayer. He began with the most southern "Dear Lord", that you can imagine! We seriously do not know where he got such a strong southern accent, but it sure makes for lots of laughs! :)

After we all sat down, before we began to eat, we went around the table and shared what we were thankful for this year. It is always nice to hear everyone talk about the blessings that they are thankful for. Some of the things mentioned, were Corey's job, health, family, friends, our church, homeschooling, our home, and having Jeanna with us this holiday season!

After a delicious dinner, we played games, watched movies, relaxed...the usual Thanksgiving day stuff! :)

We finished up the evening by eating leftovers, and sitting around the tv to watch the CNN Heroes awards. It is a great program that tells the stories of ordinary people who have gone above and beyond to help others in need. We've made it one of our Thanksgiving traditions!
