Thursday was Thanksgiving and it was a beautiful day.
The kids played outside and on the trampoline! Aunt Mel helped Reese stay up on her feet since the boys were jumping like crazy!
This kid loves to jump :)
Knocking each other down...so fun ;)
While Mel was watching the kids... Mom, Cindy, Michelle and I started making the Thanksgiving Dinner!.....
Dad and Josh put up the Christmas tree.... (love Josh's face as he peeks around the tree)...
...And Mario works on Dad's birthday gift (putting shelves in the outdoor storage closet!)
Voila!! A now more organized storage space! Great job Mario!
While the final preparations are being made for dinner, Grandad keeps the kids occupied.
Yummy!!! Always sooo delicious! We carry on some Bellican food traditions every year....turkey and ham, sweet potato casserole, dressing, scalloped potatoes, fruit salad, and more vegetables!

While the adults finished dinner, the kids began to play again and we suddenly heard tons of laughter coming from the other room where the Christmas tree was. I went in there to check things out and I figured out what they thought was so funny....they were throwing everyone's shoes in the tree! The shoes in this picture are my cousin's! Soo funny, but we made them stop...hehe.
My parents put lights on the house too because the kiddos love it so much. :)
Boy, there is ALWAYS so much to be thankful for. I am so blessed to have such wonderful family. :)
