I hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving full of delicious food, family and friends, laughter and many, many reasons to slow down and give thanks. We're all blessed beyond belief compared to so many!

As per tradition, the Hubs and I (and now the little munchie as we call him), ventured out for our day of feast and family. With much of our families in the area, we typically have anywhere from 2 to 3 family celebrations that we fit in on this holiday. It's exhausting but I wouldn't want it any other way!

We ate WAY too much at both meals, we relaxed and we dominated at the annual Spoons tournament. All in all, it was an awesome day.

There were roughly 12 side dishes at both meals.
There were hugs and handshakes.
There was a minor dog fight.
There was a nap that I tried to sneak off for until my brother found me. Punk.
There was a Macy's parade and a Bears game.
There was a plaque for the winner of our tournament.
There were new scratches added to my aunt's dining room table and spoons and nails fought their way.
There were scratched knuckles as we battled to the finish.
There were two Freibergs in the championship round with only one winner. Ahem;)
There was a guest from China who seemed to enjoy our American holiday.
There were little cousins which brought laughs, cuddles and a few lines of "Let It Go."
There were cuddle times between munchie and his great grandmas.
There were cuddle times between munchie and his second cousin Myra.
There were guitar jammies on Thanksgiving that had once belonged to cousin Jack and are now the perfect size for our sleepy munch.
There were Christmas carols in the car.
There was the decorating of our tree and napping under the lights for our fur baby.
There was bumbo chair sitting and snuggle time with blankies.
There was party mix baking with dad and watching Elf (the Hub's first time ever).
And there were so many reasons to be thankful. Oh so many. And we were.

I hope your Thanksgiving was full of just as many "there were's"!
