Thanksgiving 2012

This year we hosted Thanksgiving for 20+ family members. With me 25 weeks pregnant, we were already down some manpower as I move a lot more slowly these days, so it kind of sucked when Mike accidentally sliced the pad off his left index finger while prepping/brining the turkey the night before Thanksgiving.

He refused to go to urgent care, so we bandaged it up and put a glove over it. That didn't stop it from bleeding though. 6 hrs later, at 11:30 when we went to bed, it was still gushing blood, so he finally went to urgent care and they got him all fixed up in time for Thanksgiving day.

While Mike was prepping the turkeys, Ben was "helping" but when he saw this cooler (or garbage can, as he called it), all bets were off. He had a blast just dragging this thing around the house and pretending he was a garbage man.

Clearly we were a little busy, because some how I managed to get only one photo of Thanksgiving day. Here are the kids eating dinner at the "kiddie table." So cute! (That's Riley, Ben, Carson, and Parker, from left to right, in case anyone was unsure.)
