A Morales Thanksgiving: Part 4 (+ video & giveaway!)

Eight hours of cooking.

Thirty minutes of eating.

Fifteen minutes of clean up.

It was a great Thanksgiving. But I'm surely tired. I had so much fun cooking. And I'm so glad we got to have our first holiday in our home. Now it's time to get ready for Christmas!

For those of you who don't know me well, please don't think I'm mean. I must preface that no one was seriously injured, and that we had no idea that people actually capture things like this on camera - but alas, I did. I'm not posting this because of the ending (although we did all three get a good laugh at it later), but because Jason spent all afternoon on Thanksgiving putting up lights on our house, and this was such a cute way to ring in the Christmas season. So without further adieu, here's our Morales Lighting of the House 2013. Watch the whole thing, you won't regret it.

And now for the GIVEAWAY! Even though I can't take any credit at all for this giveaway, I wanted to make all of you aware of it! If you visit Pinterest Told Me To and/or Mix and Match Mama (a.k.a. my two favorite blogs), they're giving away a $500 Nordstrom Gift Card!! You know how much I've raved about Nordstrom this holiday season...so go on over and enter to win!!!
