Thanksgiving in VA

"Baby's First Thanksgiving"
Emma & Jackson
Mandi & Ashlyn
Austin & Sheffield
I can't believe I didn't get one picture of Harrison on Thanksgiving day! Oh my word! He was running around, having fun with his cousins so it was hard to keep up with everyone. Didn't get my dad, Anthony, or myself either! :) Oh well.
It was a GREAT time spent with family and yummy, yummy food! We are SO Thankful for our wonderful families. Both Anthony and I are blessed with wonderful parents and siblings and brother/sister-in-laws. Everyone loves each other and enjoys spending time together and not all families have what we have! We are BLESSED and SO THANKFUL!!! One sad note to the day is that my Granddaddy didn't make it over for Thanksgiving dinner. His medicine he takes for the Parkinson's makes him terribly sick and he just couldn't start feeling well enough to get together. We all hated that but completely understood. Anthony and I and the kids went over on Friday night for dinner and quality time with him and that helped to make up for it! ;)
On Thanksgiving night, my sisters always head off to their husband's side of the family so we decided we would go over and spend some time with our dear friends the Schrodts. David and Katy and their kids are so special to us and it was a wonderful time to just relax and catch up. The kids played so well together and we were able to get some real quality time in! Katy made her yummy taco meat and we did something VERY non-traditional for dinner. We ate tacos! They were delicious. You can catch up on her blog to see why they deviated from the traditional Thanksgiving meal on Thanksgiving...don't worry they still had one, just not that night! The only sad thing is I have NO pictures to prove our perfectly, wonderful good time! What is up with me? I guess I was just having too much fun!
What a wonderful Thanksgiving it was and how thankful we are for the love and blessings of friends and family!
