Spent the rest of yesterday helping out and having fun painting the kitchen!
Finished product – gorgeous bright yellow! My goal is to eventually have a yellow kitchen – it’s my favorite kitchen color.
Once the walls were done, the new appliances started rolling in.
Finished! Gorgeous brand new kitchen. :)
Once the kitchen renovation was complete at Kirt and Katie’s, we headed over to Toby and Kevin’s house to do a little cooking. They have a gorgeous giant kitchen that makes me drool.
And a house absolutely FILLED with dogs. Dog #1 – gorgeous golden Millie.
Dog #2 – GIGANTIC Great Dane Gatsby. I have never actually been in close proximity with a Great Dane before, and now I’ve decided that I have to have one. It’s kind of like hanging out with a small horse.
Dog #3 – Daisy, the Rhodesian Ridgeback. She is quiet and shy, and totally awesome.
Believe it or not, Casey’s cousins Kristin and Matt drove all the way from Ohio to Atlanta with 2 adults, a 9 year old, a 1 year old baby, the Great Dane and the Ridgeback. There was actually a 4th dog at the house – Ellie – that I somehow missed in the photos. The Malones are SUCH a dog family, and I love it. :)
Tina and I had headed over to the house early so that we could do some pre-Thanksgiving cooking. I was in charge of cranberry sauce…
Finished product – can’t wait to dig in tonight. :)
After the cooking was done, the family started rolling in and the party got started. Babies make everything more fun.
Every good party has hair braiding too. Isn’t Madison gorgeous? She looks like a mini Dakota Fanning.
The iPhone dorks hung out with their phones… :)
And Aunt Tracey had a fun announcement for everyone!
She is ENGAGED! Big congrats to her and Steve. :)
I spent most of the night following giant Gatsby around and marveling at his size.
Check him out relative Casey. They are probably close in weight.
So much fun to be surrounded by family. :)
Kirt entertained us all with magic tricks… (I was very impressed!)
And as any family reunion should, it ended with a Michael Jackson dance party.
Eventually the dogs and dancers were all worn out, and it was time to go home.
Still lounging around in my pajamas and being lazy with family. Looking forward to a feast tonight!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you ALL!
My life is so much more full because of my blog and Twitter friends. I am grateful for you all this year – thank you!
