And so it begins....

The long awaited Thanksgiving.  I'm truly so excited. My parents live 13 hours away, and since we moved in July, have never expected us to come back and visit for Thanksgiving.  We usually go to my in-laws house which was about 3 1/2 hours, but now only an hour away.  Two years ago, in our old house, we offered to host, and it was fun.  Last year, since they were so close, they cooked the turkey, well, two, one deep fried, and one roasted, and then packed them up and came over. 

We always do Black Friday, well, at least some of us (my MIL wussed out on us last year!). 

It's always a fun time...

But this year my parents decided to make the trip out here! WHOOHOO!!  It will literally be the first Thanksgiving that we will have spent with them married.  That's saying something since we've almost been married 6 years!

So, right now, my parents are somewhere between Albuquerque and Amarillo, where they will spend the night, which means in less then 24 hours we will have a house full of love!

except that whole cooking thing I have to do the next day... is there anyone out there with some extra cooking elf's that can lend me a few!


  1. Yes, the cooking elf is my mom! She started with homemade rolls today! Then she went for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! I am soooo happy that your parents are coming. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it's all about the family--glad yours gets to be with you!

  2. How great that they are coming to visit! I hope you have a great holiday. I'd lend some elves if I could - I love to cook :)

  3. So glad that your family is coming...sounds like a wonderful holiday!

  4. My parents are also driving to see us (should be here in about four hours). I'd like to think that they are coming to see me, or me and my husband--but let's face it--they're coming to see Ella. Glad you get to spend the time with them!
