Happy Thanksgiving!!

This year we took the kids to the Grand America for our Thanksgiving meal. I get a lot of flack from people for the fact that I do not cook our meal each Thanksgiving. I used to cook. I did cook or help cook at my parents house for the first 10 years of our marriage. Unfortunately my kids do not appreciate the fact that it takes about 8-10 hours to make the big meal and they proceed to take 3 minutes to eat just the turkey and mashed potatoes. They do not like yams, or pie, or green beans or anything else that we make. So going out saves me from feeling like I have wasted a day on pies and a day on the main dishes. Also at the Grand the kids have so many choices to choose from that they eat a ton and we can pretty much be done for the rest of the day. Everyone had a great meal with many desserts and also many healthy options. They had the best turkey that I have ever had in my life. It was very moist and lots of white meat! Here are a few pictures of the kids at the Grand:

After the meal we went to the movies to see Tangled. It was very cute and fun for everyone. Even Adam said,"It wasn't that bad." And coming from him about a movie that is a definite two thumbs up!!

We went to brunch at Little America for Thanksgiving. It was the best way to go...no cooking or cleaning. We loved it.

Going out is the BEST! We stayed home that past 2 years b/c Max wasn't quite old enough but this year we went out again and the kids said it was the best food and thanksgiving ever. Seriously, why stress over a big meal.
