Let us give thanks....

Thanksgiving is always a time of family togetherness, and this year was no different. We usually do Thanksgiving with my mom and then with my in laws, but this year my in-laws took a trip to my MIL's hometown, so we spent the better part of the day at my moms. There was plenty of cooking, eating and cleaning for us kids (Me, Amy, Josh and Mitch) and plenty of playing and truck rides for Paw Paw and the grandkids. :) Mom of course did the 'heavy lifting' with all the shopping, planning and a lot of cooking!

Here's me, keeping up with the dishes as we cooked.
Amy and I as we worked on all the side dishes.
Grandma Gwen did a great job on the deviled eggs. :) Look how cute she is!
Josh Cutting the Turkey
Brookelynne and Braxton had a great time playing in the back yard. Brookelynne was in her own kitchen 'cooking dinner' and Braxton and Paw Paw would go to work and come home to see what she had made for them. It was pretty cute.

Pearson Playground is Back in Business

As much as I LOVE LOVE LOVE being a born and bred Floridian, it makes for some very hot and uncomfortable days outside each year. That fact is why the back yard got just a little bit out of hand over this summer. Between overgrown grass, more heat and bugs than anyone likes, we didn't go play outside much for several months. Once the summer was over, and we had to move everything around for a hurricane scare, and then we started on inside projects, and I never got around to cleaning the back yard up and putting it back in working order for play, until just a few weeks ago. Thankfully the cooler weather and the newly cleaned back yard make for some really fun times in the Pearson Playground! :)

One new addition to the set is that Brookelynne got a new swing for her birthday! An adorable wood swing that Gabba gave her, made by some Amish people in Tennessee. :)
