Then Saturday was our actual family get together. Skye did the entire meal herself. We all just brought desserts. When I say Skye is a good hostess this is an understatement! She thinks of, prepares for, and has EVERY thing imaginable on hand in a seconds notice. Every inch of her house is spotless, every bed is draped in luxury linens, every soap dispenser is holiday decorated, every kid has a toy at their place setting, every snack, drink or food is all stocked in her frig. She just does it all. Its nothing for three of our family's to move into her house with her for days at a time. Thank goodness its a big house cause otherwise Bobby would have had everyone up in the middle of the night! hah!
Bobby was adorable in his turkey outfit as you might have guessed. I even had him try some mashed potatoes at dinner. Which he didn't really know what to think about. They were alot thicker than anything he has had thus far so he didn't swallow them right away and they kind of sat in his mouth for a while. It was funny. I had his jar of baby food Turkey and Gravy though so that was cute that he was participating in the holiday with that.
After dinner we loaded up all the kids and took them to Crown Center to go ice skating!! Highlight of the trip for me! There were Christmas lights everywhere, there was Christmas music blasting, the biggest Christmas tree I have EVER seen...not to mention the actual ice skating rink! We all had SUCH a good time!!
Then it was back to the house for hot chocolate and our second round of turkey dinner! We spent the night AGAIN cause it was just too late to make the trip home and Robby was over at his buddy Dane's watching the OU/OSU game (Boomer!) all the way across town. So Bobby and I crashed again and we took off for home yesterday morning. That is a LONG trip for the Reed family...cause those of you that know me know that I don't travel well. But I had the time of my life...and wouldn't have missed any of it for the world. BEST THANKSGIVING EVER!!
