A great night was had by all as we loaded up gingerbread men with red hots, marshmellows, gumdrops, sprinkles and skittles (left over from halloween...but the kids didn't mind!). Cooper decided to take out the middle man (the gingerbread man) and went right for the candy and frosting! I made the gingerbread men a little thick so they ended up looking more like obese men that need to hit the treadmill ASAP! That's okay...more of them to love! Thanks guys for braving the storm so we could get your kids all hyped up on old halloween candy!

Normally we spend all day slaving away over a hot stove and then sit down for 20 minutes, eat food and then take a 2 hour nap. I like this plan. But not this year...except the nap!Well this year...the hardest part of my Thanksgiving dinner was setting the timer for 2 hours so all the food could reheat! We bought our dinner from a local grocery store...Hy-Vee which is also the account Brandon calls on. We had a huge turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, apple pie, pumpkin pie and 12 dinner rolls (the package was for 8-10 people) for $50!!! What a deal! And it gave us time to spend with Mike and Denise who came to visit us! We had a GREAT time with them and Coop scored a new lawn mower out of the deal (you gotta start the boys early on the mower!). Thanks Mike and Denise for visiting and for changing all the diapers Brandon pawned off on you. With how easy this was I'm debating havind this be a tradition!
