Our Thanksgiving celebration and more

I hope you all had a truly blessed Thanksgiving! We went to my husbands brothers house for dinner.It was fun.Then we dropped the kids off at their grandparents house and they stayed over until Saturday.We slept at my brother in-laws and then were out of the house by 3:30am to go shopping.Yes,I know it`s crazy,but it is a tradition in our family.We never act crazy,or greedy,like alot of people and we ALWAYS pay with cash.We just do it for fun.We were both asleep by 8:30 that evening.We were so exhausted.
Above I have a picture of a volcano the boys and I made on Wednesday.They had alot of fun making it. They go a few toys to play with in the "lava",then we`re going to leave it for a few weeks and see how the mixture crystalized.I think this will be a fun things for the kids to see.Also,it will help them to understand that if this mixture only takes a few weeks to harden then it doesn`t take millions of years for fossils to form!
Next,I have a before and after picture of Emily`s hair.She got a haircut on Wednesday and I think she looks so cute!!
Then on Wednesday night I made homemade pizza and garlic knots with the kids.Actually it was just Anthony and Emily.Joey was off doing his own thing at that time!Oh,the kitchen and kids were full of flour,but they had such a good time!!Sometimes messes are worth it for the memories they make!! And then the last two are of the finished products.
Finally,I want to show you guys how my blanket looks so far.I think it`s coming alng nicely!Don`t forget to click on the photos to enlarge them!Have a blessed evening everyone!!!
