Scenes from Thanksgiving

We spent Thanksgiving with my family in Illinois and had a great time! Here are some pictures:

Our lovely table spread for the meal.

Josh reading Where's Spot? over and over. Cede didn't get tired of it!

Abby and I enjoying a bit of carrot to tide us over before the big meal.

Laughing in a game with Abby.

Our little Pilgrim!

Day-After-Thanksgiving shopping!

Waiting to eat at the Beef House before we went to Indy to see "A Christmas Carol".

What a lovely Thanksgiving table! It looks like you had a great holiday with your family.

Did you have turkey or tofu? We saw a news clip on a vegan Thanksgiving meal where the "turkey" was made of tofu.

Gretchen, at a Beef House????? What will come next--Hillary Clinton at a Baptist Church??? :-)
JK--you girls are all so cute. Looks like a fun weekend.....

Gretchen said...

Stace -- I know, I'm so sad! I'd love to catch up! We won't be around for Christmas (going to Ohio), but maybe more next semester.

Sar -- thanks, girl!

Steph -- We drove through rain a bit, but it wasn't bad. It's not as cold down here. And we had time for a nice stop at the outlets! YAY!

Geen -- yes, I think that was it. IRT, I think it was? Did you love how they broke into song throughout the show? That was my fave! Plus the use of trapdoors!

Anna -- yeah, I was in a hurry. Josh is currently looking for that shirt for his person for Christmas. I hope that doesn't give away who he has! :)

MR -- my family all eats turkey, I just ate the sides. YUM-O! No need to have turkey with all the other stuff!

Sar -- salad bar, baby! (Plus GREAT rolls!)

Too bad for Anna that Abby and I are both holding stuff for Daniel, not anyone we drew...muahahaha! We're not that stupid!
That play was fun, I felt so grown-up! Heeheehee....
I love you! It was fun to see you guys!
