So this year was the first year it was just us.  We didn't go anywhere, we didn't have anyone come over, nothing.  And to be honest, we truly enjoyed it.  All of us.  NONE of us were stressed.  Little Guy was on his on turf so no fussing or screaming in the car to be had.  Let kids sleep in.  Most had PJ's on the entire day. Why?  Because we could.  We put the turkey in, and turned on the Macy's Parade. Watched Sofie about lose her mind with Elmo. Still a huge hit with her.  Nik upset there was no Minecraft float.  Older kids singing some of the songs.  Simple stuff.  Then, for some reason, my kids got a burst of energy. Scrubbed the entire house!  And I mean scrubbed.  Max even washed and waxed both cars.  It was nuts.  Covered the windows in plastic for cost reasons.  Plus, windows are very drafty in this house in winter.  This helps.  Productive day. 

Why my kids always insist on peeling potatoes on the floor, I'll never know.  Hey, at lesat they sweep up the mess.  Pajama time I tell you.

So, Irina made dessert.  Boston Cream Pie/ Cake.  Better than it looks.  LOL.  And, she made Cracker Candy.  We call it crack candy though. Yes, very addicting but way, way too sweet.

Irina was SO mad I took a picture of her cake.  Don't mom!  It's ugly!  Yes, but it was delicious dear!  Just work on presentation next time.  And, we will.  I know the problem but in life, need to learn lessons here and there to figure it out for next time.   And, she did.

Ahh, Lego man is at it again.  He builds all sorts of things.  You should see the chair he built for Little Guy.  Amazing.   Sorry, no picture though.

Max cut the turkey with Reni watching.  We ate the entire thing.  Really enjoyed just hanging out together and relaxing.  And food was great.  So, a very simple but happy Thanksgiving.
