Thanksgiving Weekend

This year we had Thanksgiving at my family's house. It was delicious as always. On Thanksgiving night, Eric and I went to New Moon, I LOVED it! I'm not a huge movie critic, I'm quite easily entertained, and I really like the Twilight series, so to me, it was a fantastic movie! I don't think Eric LOVED it, but he was a good sport and I think he enjoyed himself. After the movie we went to Denny's and got 10 pm dinners. I'm not sure why we were so hungry - it being Thanksgiving and all.

We slept over at my parents house and on Friday morning headed off to cut down Christmas trees and go to the sanddunes to dirtbike! Our cute Christmas Tree (pics to come of the decorated product)!

Eli LOVES motorcycles a.k.a "Vroom Vroom" [even more than I loved New Moon :)]
Chelsea trying to lift Eric into the air
Reese and the oversized helmet that she was only able to keep her head up with for 10-ish seconds before gravity took over.
Reese thought riding the motorcycle was the best thing in the world - that's our girl!
She was quite fond of the brake line too.Reese and my aunt Kathy, who is practicing to be a Grandma sometime in the next 1 1/2 months - Yeah Melissa!!
I love that you can only see Chelsea's lower 1/2 of her face :)
Reese and Eric chasing Papa
Sad to get off the motorcycle.
Eli. He is such a doll!
Another turn, so exciting!!
It was a fantastic Thanksgiving break. I love the sanddunes and christmas tree cutting traditions. Thanks mom and dad for the yummy and fun Thanksgiving! And I'm glad we got Reese out on the bikes to see that she is our child after all!!

Soo fun! Reese is adorable. said...

Eric has always reminded me of the perfect mix of Jacob and Edward, so it's fitting that he saw the movie with you.

Looks like you need to get your bikes registered. LOL April 2002?!!!

Your mom looks so young I couldn't believe that was your mom. She looks like your sister but you definitely look like her!
