We are getting into the Thanksgiving spirit by celebrating the yummy bird that we love so much.
We had lots of fun hunting down our turkeys, dressing them and enjoying our turkey meal.
We love sports and nothing is better than a cup of hot chocolate and a good football game! Given my hubby's urge to break out the grill (after our burn ban), we went with a tailgate theme and became extreme fans....without the body paint. You are welcome to body paint if you want to go that far. :)

With Easter right around the corner, we opted for a bunny-themed Family Night. 'HOP to it' is sure to bring lots of fun and laughter to your family.
