We headed up to Cedar Falls for the holiday. Scott especially loves this holiday because he gets 2 PTO days...it has been the 1st time since he has taken a day since our little lady arrived. He was ready for some relaxation. AND that is just what we did. We had a lovely meal on Thursday which his mom mostly made (we contributed 4 pies we made as a family :). We watched LOTS of football, played board and card games, played "balls" (aka the balls on the pool table), snuggled and relaxed at home. We also celebrated Scott's 29th birthday a week early with some very very yummy "Scratch Bakery" cupckaes (I highly recommend them - yum!).
Vera's 1st Thanksgiving - we certainly are giving thanks for her!
Great Grandma got to meet Vera for the 1st time (Great Grandma is 91 - doesn't she look fantastic???)
4 Generations - Scott, his grandma, his dad, Solon and Vera
The beautiful table
Solon enjoying some coffee like the rest of us - it made me laugh
Scott's Parents aka Nana and Papa and the hosts of the feast
The buffet - so many yummies - everyone brought something and I only took a little bit of each and my plate was overflowing
And all that socializing and eating wears a girl out...
We have so much to be thankful for - our Savior, our family, our friends, our health, and our freedom!
Happy Thanksgiving 2011
