Thanksgiving Happenings

We had a very busy but blessed time at Thanksgiving.

We are thankful that we were able to travel to Wisconsin and spend the week with our daughter and her family.   We had not spent Thanksgiving with Julie since she went away to college what seems like many years ago. 

Here we are at the table ready to begin our wonderful meal.

The burlap pumpkins we made together were our center piece.

We all had a great day.

I think we took at least 10 pictures, each with varied expressions on the children's faces.

On another day that week we took time out for a game of Monopoly.  We aren't sure of the winner but Tony did have the most money and property value when we put the game away.

It was a bit cold outside while we were there.

It snowed the night we arrived so we had the chance to take walks and throw a few snowballs.

It was hard to come home but I remind myself that we are blessed to have airplanes for travel and the means to make the trip.  I am already thinking about when we should make our next visit.  This post has been waiting to be posted for quite some time, it just needed a few comments added.  I guess I have been a little distracted.  I plan to share a little Christmas very soon.
