A Colorado (early) Thanksgiving

Here is a view from above one of our mornings relaxing at grandma Charlene's house.  Eric is watching Sports Center and Avery is playing with all her toys.  I loved having the fireplace going.  It made it so nice and cozy! 
Avery playing with one of her books.  I love this hooded fleece animal print outfit!  It was nice and warm for her.  It got VERY windy this day on vacation and it was cold. 
Grandma Charlene had an awesome set up in her kitchen.  She has a huge pull out drawer full of plastic bowls and lids that Avery could play with.  It kept her occupied for awhile! 

Avery did lots of playing while we prepared some food for our early Thanksgiving dinner.  We all decided we felt like having a turkey and some yummy sides for dinner one night.  We worked on preparing food in the morning, then went out and did some shopping at the mall for a little while in the afternoon.  We picked up Avery a few new outfits at JCPenney and a pretty Christmas dress at Dillard's.  We stopped for lunch at Chickfila.

Here is our delicious turkey!  It turned out great, and I'm not usually big on eating the bird during holidays.  I'm more of a sides girl! 
Our little dinner set up.  The turkey, corn bread, stuffing (or dressing... whatever you call it!), green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and gravy.  We also had some apple crisp and vanilla ice cream for dessert. 
After dinner, Charlene and I ran over to Jo-Ann Fabrics.  We had picked up three long sleeve bodysuits for Avery earlier in the day to do some Christmas appliques on them.  We picked out the Christmas fabric and thread.  I got to do a practice applique, but Charlene is going to do the real deal and send them to us soon!  I'm so excited!  Christmas is the best time of year!
