Happy Thanksgiving to all! Yesterday we had Thanksgiving at our place and invited two great families, the Hanselmanns and the Brunslicks. It was quite the affair! We had six rambunctious little boys: TyTy, Beckham, Dixon, Luke, Eagan, and Anders and the three other boys who also tended to be somewhat rambunctious, Matthias, Fritz and Chris. Most importantly we had some great food, including: herb brined turkey, two types of stuffing, great rolls, pecan sweet potatoes, green beans with goat cheese, a cranberry green salad and a fabulous drink concoction. The desserts were also fab. and included cheesecake, pumpkin pie and some egg-nog ice cream. Thanks to the help of Lyndee and Linnea we were able to keep the boys and the food contained and enjoy great company and great food!

Today, on Thanksgiving day, we went up to Carmel, IN and enjoyed our second thanksgiving dinner with the Snows. Holly and her family are great and were very kind to invite us up there last year and again this year. It was fun to hang out with the Snows and Ben and Christy Keele who were also ther today. The boys had fun playing pool with Matthias and with a little remote control car. I bowled on the Wii and got a spare! (hooray for me). Matthias also watched football, which is fun for him because we don't have tv at home so watching football isn't something he is able to do very often. The food was also very good! Thanks to the Snows for a great Thanksgiving!

We are very thankful for wonderful family and friends and friends who sometimes are like family. We love you all and hope your Thanksgivings were as wonderful as ours!

Wow Anj! Looks like you went all out for your celebration. Everything looks just beautiful. Our Thanksgiving was nice, but small, especially without you. We miss you all and are excited to see you in about three weeks.
