Thanksgiving Celebrations

I can't believe Thanksgiving is over.  It is one of my favorite holidays... and for the second year in a row, I got to spend it with both our families (minus my sister, BIL, and nephew {missed them}).

We celebrated at my MIL's house in Carmel (again) and enjoyed being together.
My sister Julie and her new hub Matty came to celebrate with us for a couple nights after they spent time with his family.
We played board games {cranium, catch phrase, and farkle}, and ate so much delicious food that I could pop just thinking about it.  We also decorated her house for Christmas.
My MIL is such a fabulous cook.  It was absolutely some of the best food I have ever had!!
 Me and my lovable MIL
 The pups playing with toys galore!
 Dad carving the turkey!
 The Turkey Day spread... everything is homemade (even stuffing & gravy) and delicious!!
 The sunset during dinner... spectacular! 
 gobble gobble
 my mom and dad
 BIL Joe, Me, Julie, TL, & BIL Matty
Decorating the tree
 This is not photo enhanced!  It was so gorgeous!
The boys doing some cleaning and trying on some of the Christmas fashions!

I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving.
I feel so lucky to be surrounded by such amazing people.  I will never ever forget this week and how much fun it was to be together.
