Thanksgiving break was mostly quiet around here - a few friends, a few movies and games, and tons of relaxing! (I have read 5 books in this past week alone!)
Here are some of the pics that I randomly shot - nothing great, in no particular order.
Just a Thanksgiving Mush of shots.
Unfortunately, there are more of Mag - Tim is very sly, and always manages to get himself just out of my shot right before I snap the pic! Maggie on the other hand, indulges me a lot more!

Our unconventional Thanksgiving Dinner!!
We decided to spend the holiday alone this year - and enjoy the quiet!
Since we didn't have anyone to please but ourselves, we all had our favorites - as opposed to a traditional feast. We did have a Ham and some of the sides that go along with it too.
My homemade vegan potstickers and ponzu sauce - YUMMY!!!
Tommy made red beans and rice!
Tim chose his favorite Chicken Pillows!
and Maggie made Cheesy, garlic mashed potatoes.
Actually, she boiled them too long and ended up with Cheesy, garlic mashed potato soup - It was still delicious!
We played A LOT of Skip Bo
looking a bit smug - he ALWAYS wins!
Tim on a roll - throwing those cards down one right after the other!
Zacks lucky hand!
Mag and Zack WOULD NOT take a decent pic - They have been friends too long - they have become too much alike! I kept trying, but finally gave up - jerks.
Time to put up Christmas lights outside!
Tommy gave Tim the Sucker job - untangling each strand!
Yep - he loves that job!!
Proud of herself for climbing up and touching the roof - the girl Loves roller coasters and danger, but hates ladders! Weird!
BFF Haley and maggie made it to the roof!!
trying to look cool - but really terrified of falling!
tommy hanging lights - he's not scared at all - which scares me! I'd be more comfortable if he had a little fear, for safety's sake!
at last - feeling brave!
I just thought this pic was funny! I guess she must have been pulling up her pants?
My kids - I LOVED having them home for a whole week!
