Thanksgiving, 2015

Story told by: Lainey

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I’ve been looking forward to Thanksgiving for quite awhile, so I’m happy it’s finally here!

We started our day by watching the parade. I loved watching the Radio City Rockettes.

Henry especially loved the Sesame Street float.

I spent most of the parade cuddling with Grandpa.

Mommy and Grandma spent most of the morning and early afternoon getting stuff ready for our yummy Thanksgiving dinner. They are a great team!

While the final touches were put on dinner, Brody hung out with Uncle Jeff.

Daddy did the honors of carving the turkey.

Mommy’s good friend, Abby, and her family joined us for Thanksgiving dinner. Abby’s family lives in Pennsylvania, so we were thrilled to have them join us!

The fantastic kids’ table!

The adult table. What a great group!

Dinner was wonderful! Thanks to everyone for their hard work.

Brody hung out for most of dinner, and ate some pureed sweet potatoes in honor of Thanksgiving dinner.

After dinner, we played Heads Up, which is a game on our iPad. It involves acting out words in order to get your teammate to guess it.

The game app takes a video of the people acting, and you can save it to your device. This one was an especially great video of Grandpa acting out the word “cowboy.”

After the game, we cut into the caramel pecan pumpkin pie and apple pie. Yum!

Grandma joined Henry at the kids’ table. He LOVED his pie. We didn’t hear a peep out of him for ten minutes, which is unheard of in this house.

We ended the night by reading the book about our elf on the shelf, Elf (I named him “Elf” last year). He’s back for a fun month of finding his new location each morning. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. God has sure blessed us with some wonderful family and friends.
