Turkey Day X 2 / My 30th Birthday Bash

Wow, what a busy weekend! Thanksgiving was great this year. We got not one, but two turkey dinners. We spent the better part of Thursday at my hubby's parents' house.

This year Peanut joined us at the table for dinner. It was great seeing her with her own miniature place setting eating turkey and cranberry sauce with the rest of us :) Great Gma made her heavenly sweet potatoes again, which are my absolute FAVORITE. I look forward to them every year!

We burned off some calories afterward by dancing and playing in the living room. The only sad part was that we missed out on seeing Peanut's Aunt and Uncle-to-be but aside from that Thursday was great!

Friday we all went to my Mom's to celebrate Thanksgiving part 2 and our family's plethora of November birthdays. My nephew turned 3 this year and I turned the big 3-0!! Grandpa had a birthday too so we all got cupcakes with candles. For some reason mine were really hard to blow out.

 Must be b/c I'm getting OLD (or b/c they were trick candles, thanks a lot guys)!! Everyone got lots of really cool gifts this year. My parents and Grandparents surprised me with a brand new Nikon camera! It works so much better than my old one. I'm so grateful!!

My nephew got some really cool Iron Man toys. He got a mask, some sort of weapon and a "titanium" core. He had a blast playing superhero for the rest of the night. :)

Last, but not least, we went to Wild Mango on Saturday for my 30th birthday party. Dinner was GREAT. Thirteen of my wonderful family and friends were there to celebrate with me. I felt so blessed and so loved :)

The food outstanding. My favorite thing would have to be the Pepsi shrimp! I seriously can't get enough of those things.

Being with my friends would have to be my favorite part though. I'm so grateful that I have so many amazing people in my life. Here's hoping we will always be this close :)
