Our Thanksgiving Week

So our Thanksgiving week went off as a success. We started last weekend by going to Great Wolf Lodge with Joni, Ricky, and Ryder. Ella and Ryder loved the water, they were so cute.

The hotel was decorated like a giant lodge with stuffed animals everywhere

Ella got her wolf ears at dinner.

We played in the arcade after dinner.

After coming home, our tree had lost all of its leaves, so Jason and Ella raked them and played in them.
Wednesday, Jason and I started getting ready for our first Thanksgiving at our house by shopping early and setting the tables up the night before. I was pretty happy with how everything turned out. We had a lot of Jason's family over and a lot of great food. I think everyone had a really good time. Can't wait for next year!
I made the wreath about 3 weeks ago, the wheat stalks were much perkier then.

I found these leaf placemats at Bed Bath and Beyond for a steal, and the plates were super cheap too.

I purchased burlap at the local fabric store, and made it into a table runner and table cloth for the kids table.

I made the kids table with printables from: Shindig Parties.


  1. I love this! I am so glad you shared. I almost bought those placements, too :) Where was the lodge you stayed at?
