Thanksgiving with the Feys

It is 4 pm right now. So far we have had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We went to church this morning (Tyson sat through the whole service, Jori made it about 2/3 of the way through), had lunch, put Jori down for a nap, and have been enjoying a very quiet day of newspaper reading and football watching.

Since preschool on Monday, Tyson has been asking where we were going on Thanksgiving. When we told him we were staying at our house he said "But my teacher said we get to go somewhere!" We did have several invites to join different friends at their Thanksgiving feasts, but we decided to stay home and celebrate with just the four of us. Our meal was a bit unconventional, but we tried to make it as traditional as possible. Here's the turkey part of our meal

They were actually pretty good. Darin even said he would be willing to eat the turkey version from now on. We didn't have green bean casserole, but we did have some canned green beans. Here's our family sitting down to eat our Thanksgiving feast

*please take special note of Tyson's indian headband and the beautiful turkey centerpiece that he made at church.

While Jori was sleeping, Tyson and I made brownies. I am guessing that at least half the pan will be gone by the time we go to bed, if not more. Right now the kids are playing outside. Here are some pics for your viewing pleasure

I felt that Jori's outfit really deserves a close up

Thanks Auntie Rachel for the beautiful snowsuit!

We hope that you are all having a blessed Thanksgiving day.
