Fabulous weekend!

Monday already! Yuck! :)

We had a wonderfully busy and fun weekend! The weather was gorgeous, Noel was home from work, we spent lots of time with our families and I couldn't have asked for more!

On Saturday I was up bright and early and went down to the Farmer's Market and I got our weekly produce as well as some things for our Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday. Thanksgiving isn't until next weekend, but since Noel was home and will be away for the actual holiday, we thought we would have it early.

In the afternoon, the weather couldn't have been more perfect for pictures! :) We hired a photographer and got some pictures done at a cute little farm. The session was only half an hour long which was perfect for both Noel -- who really doesn't like having his picture taken -- and our pup Jackson -- who is like a child and has a short attention span! :) Today, we got a sneak peek of the photos as our photographer posted two shots. Here they are!





On Sunday we had our big dinner and it turned out great! I was a little stressed because I thought the turkey would be overdone. But it was awesome! We got a 26 pound turkey and it was much bigger than I had ever cooked. Being that it had to cook much longer than I had ever done before -- the bird had to be in the oven for 8.5 hours! -- I thought it was going to be dry. But thank goodness it wasn't! Everyone had a great time and it was so much fun to have all of our family over!

Hope you all had a great weekend too!
