Giving Thanks for Turkey Time

Monday November 28, 2011


We had a great time celebrating Thanksgiving with both sets of grands.  We are so blessed to have both sides our family get along and enjoy each other.  Here’s a bit of what we enjoyed while we were down in the country.

Cracking nuts


Trying out the new sponge rollers


We recently acquired mini dirt bikes — they are were a huge hit.  Even ye olde Meanest Momma went for a spin.



The kids love Grandpa’s “Go Kart” — they treat it like their personal jungle gym.



Grandma slaved away in the kitchen for us, I was so thankful to have someone else do the cooking.


We had a delicious Thanksgiving feast with all the traditional fixins — turkey, corn casserole, broccoli salad, mashed potatoes, and of course crescent rolls.


Dessert was also a treat — cheesecake, pumpkin pie, Paleo pecan pie, and birthday cake.



Too soon it was time to head home.  We had a great time with the grands and can’t wait to see them again at Christmas!

    Looks like you all had a great time. Don told me that you all had a couple of cycles that you all enjoyed very much while down south. It is wonderful that all your family can be together at the holidays!
