Our first year to host Thanksgiving at our house!!!  Mom, Dad, Tanner & Ashlee all came to celebrate.  We had a great weekend and aside from LOTS of food, we actually fit in a LOT of projects.  I have the sort of Dad that literally knows how to do everything.  And he is a perfectionist... so you know it's going to be... PERFECT.  We totally "did" (can't say "re-did" because it wasn't much before) the loft/office/studio area and finally finished Braden's room w/ Bunk beds, chair rail, paint, decor etc....  It seems like when the fam comes up we always fit in some project... I will definitely post pictures soon.  It was a really good time though, and my first Turkey turned out pretty nice n' moist so that counted as a success for me!!!  Here are a few pics.  I am realizing that I am somehow in almost every single one... how did that happen... I am usually behind the lens... oh well!

Turns out Braden has a hidden love or dare I say talent for peeling potatoes.  He sat there forever working on a potato.  I need to remember this activity for the next he gets bored.  It kept him happily busy for a long time!!

And you gotta have an extra set of hands when you're making dough... it just makes the rolls taste better!

How fun! We had our first Thanksgiving this year too, but still managed to get out of making the Turkey, thank goodness. Congrats on your first Turkey being a success!! How fun to have your parents there to help you with so many projects too. I am dying to see the photos. Glad you guys had a nice Thanksgiving!

I've never thought to let the kids help peel potato's. I can see how that would be very entertaining. Glad you had fun. It is a lot of work hosting but totally worth it. Can't wait to see your house projects.

It seems a little more than I need to check the information, because I was thinking: Why does not my GLOG these things!

Although we have differences in culture, but do not want is that this view is the same and I like that!
