Weekend Rewind {November 25, 2013}

Happy Monday/Thursday! It was so nice at work today because it felt like Thursday all day. I hope y'all had a happy weekend before Thanksgiving. This will probably be the last somewhat laid-back weekend until January!

We had a great weekend here, one that I know I'll want to remember. :) Daniel and I rented a movie from Redbox and stayed home on Friday night. There's just something I love so much about watching a movie next to the Christmas tree. We also broke out our Whirley Pop and made some homemade popcorn. I was feeling sweets {as usual}, so I added some M&Ms to mine. Is there a way to keep those darn things from sinking to the bottom?! Seriously. It's a problem.

Saturday morning, we made our weekly grocery trip and went out for donuts. Let's keep those sweets means I'll have a super sweet baby, right?! That afternoon, my sister and brother-in-law brought Vanna over for a sleepover! We ended up taking her to Chuck E. Cheese's. Last time we went, the place was almost empty. This time, oh my goodness, it was so packed that we hardly got any pictures at all.

Ticket muncher!
She picked out a sparkly purple wand, Chuck E. Cheese tattoos, and a blinged out dollar sign ring. We all got a laugh from that one!

Picking out prizes!
After dinner at Superior Grill, we headed home to make pumpkin bread and Oreo turkeys!

Vanna is such a good helper in the kitchen!!

She even cracked the eggs!

When the pumpkin bread was in the oven, we started on our Oreo turkeys!

If you know me at all, you know I can't resist Oreos...especially Double Stuf. Oh, and Oreo people, why spell "stuff" with only one "f"? Just why?

Then it was time for Vanna to teach Uncle D how to make the Oreo turkeys. He's such a sweet uncle. I can't wait to see him be a daddy. Love.

Once the turkeys were all assembled, Vanna decided that the candy corn feathers needed a little embellishment. She added a dot of orange frosting to the tip of each feather and made us both die laughing when she said that the turkeys were going to the "feather salon".

Our little turkey family!

We spent the rest of the night playing letter sounds bingo {the teacher in me was super impressed with her skills! :)} and Sofia's Magical Tea Time game.

Sunday morning we went out for donuts! Umm, yes, that did make two days in a row for Daniel and me, thankyouverymuch.

We definitely congratulated ourselves for making it to church on time with a child. We can do this! :) Vanna did make it pretty easy on us, though.

After church, I did what will most likely be the extent of my Black Friday shopping. We went to CVS and got a few totally random things. You can check out the CVS Black Friday ad on Southern Savers here. It only took me a few minutes to get ready for the trip. If you don't shop at CVS, you're missing out. It seriously is a thrill every time I shop there! I paid $2.84 {that includes tax} for all of this stuff and left with $14.97 to spend next time!!

After a quick Sunday afternoon nap, we headed back to church to serve at the Thanksgiving dinner. I ended up assigning myself to the least popular item on the menu...cranberry sauce. I can't blame anyone, though. I don't like it, either! :)

I'm so thankful that I got to spend another weekend with the people I love the most.

Happy Thanksgiving week!

"In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
I Thessalonians 5:18
