A delicious ham dinner with all the fixings, new jammies for the kids, reading/discussing about our Saviors birth in the scriptures, leaving out cookies & milk for Santa on the table and in bed by 8:30.
Our Thanksgiving was VERY low key... just the FIVE of us. That means Steve and I made the entire Thanksgiving lunch from scratch, by ourselves. (hopefully the first and only time, we sure missed our families)
I made homemade rolls with Becky the night before.
Our turkey turned out yummy! (I was a little slow on the purchasing & defrosting of the turkey. Therefore, Steve stayed up all night, on quick method of defrosting, changing out the cold water every 30 minutes for 10 hours. It totally worked!)

After lunch, we all went to see the new Tangled movie in 3D. A thumbs up from the entire the family!
When we got home, our delicious pumpkin roll was waiting for us.

Kate's permanent teeth grew in before loosing her baby teeth, giving her double chompers on the bottom! She had her two bottom teeth pulled today to make room for the permanent pearly whites. So she lost her first teeth today, but is definitely not toothless.
Hopefully the tooth fairy will remember to come tonight!
p.s. she's been asking all sorts of questions; what time does the tooth fairy come, how does she get into the house, how much money will she leave, will she take my baby teeth or leave them?
