This year we had Thanksgiving in Arizona with Tadd's family. It was a full house!!! Now, every sibling in the family has at least one kid (we were the last ones holding out-saving the best for last ;) We were able to stay with his brother and sister in law and their two kids. They always save a room for us...and this year, they had all the goodies that we needed for Liam including a car seat, stroller, and crib. Can you believe that...that saved us some serious packing! We arrived on Wednesday evening and headed straight to Nick's house to get some shut eye before Thanksgiving day. On Thanksgiving we all hung out at the house while the food was cooking. All the kids were hanging together. Dinner turned out really good!We had all the traditional dishes including turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, homemade cranberries and then a few desserts! Yikes... Friday after Thanksgiving we decided to go to a bounce house to burn some holiday calories. We had such a blast jumping around, as did the kids, even Liam had his fair share of bouncing!

Saturday we all went out to breakfast and ate more...I think that is what the Thanksgiving theme is...Eat as much as possible and then go on a diet. The rest of the day Liam and I chilled at the house and took a nice long nap while the rest went to an indoor park with lots of slides and things to climb on. Saturday night we were also able to meet up with Tadd's high school friends and their two kids. We enjoyed some pizza and some quality time catching up.

Sunday we went to church with the family and then headed back to the house for a lighter dinner. Monday was our last day and we ended up eating at Pita Jungle which I miss from Arizona. We also stopped at Ritas for a little treat which was delicious! Then mexican food for dinner before we jammed to the airport for our flight home. We got home around 10pm and everyone was ready for bed...but not before I unpacked and got everything ready for Tuesday (my day off, thankfully). We had a really fun time with all the family and nieces and nephews.
