Our Thanksgiving Day Fun

For Thanksgiving we went to Cody's parents on Wednesday and my Grandma's house on Thursday. I am so thankful that we were able to spend time with the family that we love and care about.

It's been a rough year and there are days when I am not sure how to be thankful. But, despite everything that has happened this year, I will never forget how lucky I am to have two wonderful children that make me smile a million different times a day.

At Grandma and Grandpa Snyder's house we ate lots of turkey, drank some wine, and hung up Christmas decorations. The weather was beautiful so we spent most of the time playing outside and hanging up decorations.

On Thursday we went to my Grandparents house where we enjoyed Turkey, lots of dessert, a game of cards, and Lightning McQueen!

My Grandpa found this on the side of the road, took it home and rebuilt it so that Kyler would have something to ride around in on Thanksgiving.
Thank you so much Great Grandpa.
You made Kyler a very happy little boy.

So glad you had a great Thanksgiving, Heather! I love the pictures - Leah LOVES to eat leaves too although ours are now covered in snow, lol.

LOVE the wagon - well done on fixing it up, it just looks fantastic.

awww, looks like a great day!

so weird to see such brown grass, when everything is so green here from the over abundance of rain we get!!!

that wagon is awesome! Curt wants one like that for Kendra.

Glad to hear that you had such a great time!!

Hi Heather,
I am a friend of Jodi, and have been following your blog for awhile now. Just wanted to let you know I think it's great, and I really enjoy reading it. Also, thanks for the inspiration on cloth diapers. We've been using for a few months now and I LOVE them, but I don't know any other mommies that use them. Thanks for showing me there are some more out there!
