Thanksgiving Day VLOG || Movies, Home Decor Tour, Family & FOOD!



good morning guys and Happy Thanksgiving come along with us today so I hope you guys are having an awesome Thanksgiving so far right now it's about 9:40 and we're all headed out to the movies we're gonna go see the movie Coco and I'm super excited because we actually saw a preview of this movie when you're at Disneyland and it looks really interesting so this morning my husband made pancakes for the kids and I don't know if you can tell it's kind of smoking here but he also burned the bacon so that wasn't very good but that's okay I do have a lot of cleaning to do still before my whole family comes over but we're gonna go to the movies because I'm hoping to make that a new family tradition so before I head out the door I just want to show you how I'm embracing imperfection this holiday season your size you can tell the house is not perfectly clean and instead of stressing about it I'm gonna go have fun with my family and I will deal with this later and if it's not perfect by the time my guests get here then it's not perfect house tonight I stayed up really late and I did all of my Black Friday shopping and as you can tell here they also painted some walls right here it needed to be touched up and so I got that all done but now we're gonna go ahead and head out to the movies are you super excited to see the movie yeah are you having a good Thanksgiving yeah what did you do so far today that's right I put in more decorations last night please Thanksgiving Parade on TV okay so let's go see the movie yeah I don't know how he's gonna do during a movie but we're gonna try our best okay guys so we're back from the movies and I thought that was really good I actually really liked it and they had the new frozen Olaf's adventure before the movie which was really cute as although it was kind of long over all the kids did really well at the movies although we ended up happy to take Griffin out once because he was getting a little bit rowdy but who shared popcorn we shared a soda and now we're back home and the house doesn't smell like burnt bacon as much some of the smoke has got away so I need to feed the kids lunch and then I need to get out my table cloths I need to mop the floors clean the countertop and then my whole family is coming over at 4:00 so right now it's 12:30 I better get going all right here is lunch today now the family is coming over at 4:00 but we probably won't eat till 5:00 so I did want to give the kids a rake it's sort of a regular lunch but not too big they're just having a nun crustle some fruit and yogurt and then as soon as they're done I need to wipe down the table get the tablecloth on and start setting the table are you guys gonna help yeah okay guys I literally have about two minutes before my guests arrive for Thanksgiving but I thought I'd give you the tour of the house real quick there's a little entryway have a few decorations here this line is from Hobby Lobby and this tree is from Target the kids each took turns writing what they're thankful for and then I just have a couple things from the Dollar Tree from Ross and from Hobby Lobby moving over here I have a new addition to our gallery wall which are these silhouettes that I actually got at disneyland recently I just love those here we have Griffin and Lily here's Jacksons and Mackenzie's I just love those I made our little gallery wall over here moving over here we're only having six adults for our Thanksgiving tonight so we have six play settings here and let's see I've had these for quite awhile I don't even remember where they're from but we have a little candle thing from the Dollar Tree here and one there and then recently I picked up these really cute owls shaped salt and pepper shakers from Ross let's see these little placemats are from the Dollar Tree as well as the little napkin rings are from the Dollar Tree moving on over here ignore the highchair I just had to stick it somewhere I have this harvest sign that came from Hobby Lobby see the flowers and the pot both came from the Dollar Tree and then all of these things are all from the Dollar Tree except for this guy he's from Hobby Lobby now I have to say last night I was touching up the walls and unfortunately this picture frame fell off the wall and broke so I'm not going to be able to hang that today and I probably won't be able to replace it because I don't think they make these anymore but this was supposed to go over here with its twin there were two over here and there were two over there but oh well over here we're gonna have our little dessert table and our drink station this little pump this big pumpkin back here is from Hobby Lobby and all of these guys are from the Dollar Tree and then I'm not quite sure where I found these that they're really old and then over here I have some candle pillars with some candle sticks all of those are from Ross they were super cheap up there just have some garland from the Dollar Tree and a banner from Target the buffet area is going to be over here as soon as everyone arrives now as far as the food goes I do need to finish off my green bean casserole I need to put the topping on right now I have my mashed potatoes preheating in the oven look there's McKenzie Happy Thanksgiving Happy Thanksgiving and let's see I need to take my cheese ball out and get that plated up as well now I forgot to show you the kids table which is located in our home score and guys say hi what do we have here Kenzie we have placemats and you have to rate what do you have Jack I'm your master pilgrim yeah if we have a pilgrim girl or boy these are from Hobby Lobby and then is it also from Hobby Lobby we have a little TP crack so the kids will hopefully stay dizzy 3ds and won't be running around being loud and crazy right are you guys getting hungry yeah what's your favorite Thanksgiving food yeah show it Jackson lost his first tooth a few days ago smile big you like any got US dollar at this world the Tooth Fairy comb that's awesome and what about you Lilly did you go to the movies today yeah would you what did you see I thought that was really good but you know what it didn't make me cry normally the Disney Pixar movies they make me cry but I did think it was really good and I especially liked the ending but we're not gonna tell them right because they have to see it themselves right now I'm still wearing my lucky socks in my jeans and my hair is a mess so I'm gonna go quickly clean up myself that grab me and you need to change your shirt too now it looks like we're ready to go sorry I didn't film any of the actual cleaning it was kind of like a mad mad rush to get it all done so didn't have time to film it but it got done it's pretty clean and this guy was such a big helper to me are you having a drink I want one of those you have a Red Bull Emmy hi guys so we're ready for Thanksgiving dinner and I'm here with my brother tell him your channel Big John TV you guys check it out check it out so

answer and the other players ha can tell have to guess whether your answer is correct or not so you're trying to strike each other out it's really fun what do you eat in Lille do you have a little bit of whip cream on there or what I love whipped cream the crust is down there okay you better go eat it about so that Afghan was really fun but now we're gonna go ahead and draw names out of the owl to see who are buying presents for it this year I get my hand out okay now it's the cousins turn they're gonna draw a name and buy a present for whoever they draw but if you draw your own name put it back okay John name okay don't show anybody Joe name pick a paper and Danny pick flag so that is pretty much everything on our list for today I'm gonna go ahead and start packaging this up and our

    Idk, but I think it’s kinda sad that the kids didn’t get to have thanksgiving dinner with their parents… just my opinion.

    You are so calming to watch lol. You seem to be fairly easy going and take it all in stride. I'm curious, what do you do when you get super stressed and frustrated and your kids and husband are driving you nuts? Thx for sharing. 🙂

    Happy Thanksgiving Jennifer. Funny story. At Thanksgiving I was making my grandkids Dirty Cokes using your recipe and my grandson said to, "Grandma, before you die will you give me your recipe for Dirty Coke?" We all had a good laugh.

    I recognize that it is a bad time of year, but would you consider doing a video on weight management? You’ve opened up a little about your struggle with your weight (me too, sister!) and I am so curious on how you deal with that. Maybe after the holidays? Thanks!

    Anyone who also lives with children would not expect perfection :). And your kids will remember the things you took the time to do with them when they are older, not how clean you kept the toilet 🙂
