Meet the Sullivans: Thanksgiving 2016

Thanksgiving 2016

Are you still recovering from a fun holiday weekend like I am? We had a busy and fun-filled weekend with friends and family, so we're all a little tired today. Owen even slept in until past 7am!

Thanksgiving kind of snuck-up on us, but it was such a fun time with family!

We have had so much to be thankful for this year...

I'm thankful we live nearby all of our family and don't have to travel to see them.

I'm thankful for all of the wonderful family members we have been blessed with, young and old.

I'm thankful that we get to surround ourselves with so many loved ones on holidays.

And of course I'm so very thankful for the three men -- the big one and the little ones!

Thursday afternoon we got together with Keith's family for some Thanksgiving fun! We played kickball in the street (that's a tradition!) and played a really fun game of Saran Wrap Ball. I had never heard of the game before, but it was so much excitement and fun! Owen walked away with some cash, Star Wars socks and candy. He was thrilled!

Lukey got lots of love and attention too! He loves getting right in the middle of the group and playing along with all the big kids.

Late in the afternoon we headed over to my grandpa's house to spend dinner time with them. I brought pigs in blankets and chocolate pie. Something happened to my pie and it turned to liquid! I was so bummed. I've never experienced such a terrible kitchen FAIL like this one. Luckily my aunt had some ice cream and candy on hand so satisfy everyone's sweet tooth. I was so disappointed!

Dinner was fantastic, of course! My favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner is usually the stuffing, but this year I think my sister's kale salad was my favorite thing on my plate! Owen chowed down on carrots and turkey -- the only things on the table he would get near. He's not a fan of "mushy" foods still. When Luke woke-up from his nap he ate mashed potatoes, turkey, bread and stuffing. He's a HUGE fan of stuffing just like me.

On Friday morning Keith and Owen met up with some of his family at Santa's Tree Farm in Half Moon Bay. Luke was still asleep when they left, so I stayed home with him to get ready for his party the next day. Owen found the cutest Charlie Brown tree and wanted to take it home, but daddy had to say no. I'm glad he did too, because every tree in the lot was price at $80 this year no matter the size.

What a fun weekend! I'm always sad to see it end, although I am really excited for the Christmas season this year. I hope you had a great holiday with your family!

I'm putting together photos from Luke's 1st Birthday Party to share with you later this week!
