After the turkey....

It's always so nice to be with family during a holiday and this Thanksgiving was no exception. My youngest sister only lives about 20 minutes from us, so after a morning of cooking my share of the was off to her house we went. It was a day filled with sitting around talking.....eating some gooood food....sitting around because we all felt like stuffed turkey's ourselves and talking some more and then once we all felt like we could get up and move, we went outside to play some awesomely fun Corn Hole. Some friends introduced us to this game a few years ago and talk about something that gets you moving, laughing and having an awesome time. I have to admit that I thought our friends were calling it Corn Hoe (ya know how those Northerners talk...kinda funny ^_^) but come to find out after going online to find directions on building us a set that they were trying to say Corn Hole. Now I know why they looked so funny and laughed every time I said the name of the game. It's a simple game....a long board with a hole cut in the top middle and you throw these bags filled with corn. The object is to get your bag into the hole. You get points for your bag landing on the board too. Sounds too simple you say....well....wait until you try it....not so simple!!! Playing this game together as a family was something that we all enjoyed and it will be one of our family Thanksgiving memories and I'm sure something that is going to become a tradition. What better way to work off all that turkey and dressing and sweet potato casserole!!!

Yesterday I finished the second teachers gift for the Chazman. I do hope that both will like wearing their Santa pins. They could also attach a ribbon to the pin and have a Santa ornament. Here is the second pin.

So......How was your Thanksgiving? Any new traditions started? Let us know....we might want to add a few new ones to ours next year. Until next time...........Hugs, Regi
