On Thanksgiving this year we invited Crys and Alan over to eat with us.  It was a low key day which was nice.  We did a few crafts while I worked on the meal. 

First we made these little wreaths out of paper plates and construction paper.  We made colorful leaves and wrote things we were thankful for on them and then glued them to the paper plate.  It was fun.  Rob helped Riley with the glue and I completely cut his head off in this picture.  oops.

 Next we got out the cranberries and made sculptures out of them with toothpicks.  My friend posted a picture of her kids doing this on instagram and it was the perfect activity.  It kept Zac occupied for a good long time.  He made me take a picture of him with all of his creations.  There were about 15 of them.  ha ha.

Here is a picture of most of the food.  Minus the jello fluff.  

This was the only picture I got of the meal.  ha ha.  We loved having Crys and Alan over. 

Then after we ate of course we had to watch a Christmas movie.  Rob was snuggled up with Emery and Riley. 

Then Riley climbed onto the couch and snuggled up right be Zac.  It was a sweet moment.  

You can't really see it but Zac was rubbing her hair.  Cute!  These two share a room now and they have the sweetest bond.  

We are so thankful for so many things in our lives.  Especially family and our faith.  We are loving trying to spend this Christmas season focusing on Christ by #lightingtheworld.  If anyone is interested in finding out more about lighting the world, check it out here.
