Fun Filled Holiday

We had a great day yesterday. In the morning Alexa and I went to Wal-Mart to get some extra stuff for supper, and then we went to visit her Aunt Tamara and cousin Eno who just got into town for the weekend. After we spent some time playing with them we came back home and started cooking. We made a broccoli casserole and a ham...both turned out super yummy! Mama and Daddy were at the church for the Thanksgiving Feast there...they were over the food part of it this year, so we helped by getting our food ready.

We went to my Aunt Marian's around 5, and the whole family was there. All of my aunts and uncles and cousins with their kids, it was a huge group and lots of fun. We had a great meal and then just hung out for a while catching up on everybody. It was so nice to see everybody, I can't remember the last time we saw Michael or Matt.

After supper we came home and visited with Josh and Brenda a bit more before they went home. Then Anthony and I spent a little while looking at sales papers to find a deal on a digital camera. We bought one last weekend, and so far I have not been impressed. We decided to get another one and give it a try. After much looking we decided to try an Olympus. Mama has had two different ones and liked both of them. She still has the original digital camera she bought, and it takes great pictures, so I'm looking forward to trying it out. I'll let you know how it goes.

Anthony was super sweet and was at Radio Shack at 6am this morning to make sure I got the camera I wanted at the best price. Who could ask for more??

Here are some picture I took last night after dinner while everyone was sitting around talking. I hope you all had a great holiday and got to relax and enjoy spending time with family like we did. Enjoy this great weather God has given us! I know I am super thankful for all of the blessings He has given me!
