We spent Thanksgiving in the mountains with my parents and my sister's family. We had a wonderful time together. This is the first time we've all been together since this summer. We spent a week together at the beach just before Joshua was diagnosed with diabetes.
As I look through my pictures, I realize that there were a lot of things I didn't get pictures of this year! I should have taken more pictures. Oh well.
We enjoyed a traditional meal with lots of yummy foods. The table was beautifully decorated.
Rebecca added a new piece to the decorations this year in placecards. She made these very cute turkeys for each person! Didn't she do a great job?
We had a nice selection of pies for dessert (the only food I got a picture of this year). Rebecca made 5 different pies for us to choose from. She also calculated the carbs on each of the pies too!
We had a relaxing time while we were there. We played games.
The girls did some knitting.
We enjoyed a play that Rebecca wrote for Thanksgiving (which was really cute!).
We read books, talked and did some organizing. Roger took some of our children to a Christmas parade and they enjoyed getting some candy. It was fun to just spend time with family.
Eliana got an early birthday present. A stuffed animal that sings Happy Birthday. It's mouth moves and so does the animal. Eliana loves it! She quickly learned how to make it sing and has been having a great time with it. (And thankfully we didn't have to listen to it all the way home either.)
Thanks Mom and Dad for having us up. We had a great time and appreciate your hospitality! We look forward to having you here sometime soon.
I have much for which I'm thankful and enjoy this holiday and the traditions that go with it.
