Considering the craziness that usually surrounds most holidays, our Thanksgiving was surprisingly, pleasantly devoid of crazy. We joined Stephen's army-sized family in Fort Smith on Thanksgiving Eve and Thanksgiving Day. And this stuff happened:
|Miss Ruby Dale thoroughly enjoyed celebrating her first Thanksgiving.|
|Favorite new plaid shirt from Savoir-Faire; favorite man courtesy of the Good Lord|
|Stephen's siblings: Nick, Sarah, Stephen, Greg and Stephanie|
|Sarah and her precious daughter (our niece) Ava|
|I married into a ginormous Italian family...and this is only a few of them!|
|Reed and Ava, our adorable nephew and niece (Sarah's kiddos)|
|This makes us laugh; Ava and Reed are always ready for a photo opp. Luke (other nephew on the right) is ALWAYS getting side-tracked. Hilarious.|
|I had ta get a pic with my favorite four-year-old. Had ta!|
|Stephen and Ari, our other big fur baby. This pup was in hog heaven...literally. Ari's grandpa Jeff had just given him a pork bone.|
|The cutest little Playschool car driver this side of the Mississippi.We should ALL live with this much joy.|
|Luke, our other sweet nephew, (Greg's kiddo). We laughed and laughed at his little protruding tummy, which came as a result of eating approximately 16 lbs. of pie and cookies. Presh, I tell you.|
Friday, my parents drove up to Northwest Arkansas from Heber Springs. Mom and I tore up the Promenade (our outdoor shopping center), while Stephen, Dad and Matthew (my little brother) watched football.We had a blast, (and so did our debit cards!)
What did your Thanksgiving look like? Lots of family and food? Some Black Friday shopping, perhaps?
P.S.- I also tried a red lipstick on Thanksgiving and loved it! It's Loreal's Color Riche lipstick in Plum Explosion. Not purple-ish or plum-esque at all. It's a bold, cool-toned red, which works for fair skin tones better than a coral or orange-based red.
Be blessed, lovelies-
