We had a very nice Thanksgiving. It was at Jess' house this year, and when we got there, she had so many appetizers and snacks while the turkey was cooking. I brought some sugar cookies and pink frosting, so the kids could decorate them later, and Jess' pumpkin pie was so good. Nel made homemade whipped cream for the pie, and also some wraps which she cut into slices that were delicious.
Mia and Francesca were wearing the cutest Thanksgiving outfits.
My guitar-playing son-in-laws. I love to listen to them play their music.
They hopped in the wagon, and Renecke pulled them for a long time around the patio area in the back yard. They loved it.
Some beautiful Thanksgiving flowers.
Jess has a bunny throw that she drapes over the rocking chair. It's so funny and cute.
We went upstairs in Francesca's room, so the kids could play in there for awhile. It's decorated so nice, and it's a big and spacious room for Francesca to roam and play. Jess put a little Christmas tree in her room with Pink ornaments.
Francesca was cracking up as she piled stuffed animals and toys on me, one after another, and so I let her, until I was buried in them.
Then, they started to throw balls at Jess while they were in the crib, a game they play. And after that, they went after Nel in the tent haha.
A Mother always wonders if her daughters will be a gracious host when making a big holiday dinner for the family, but my daughters have learned to manage the time well, and always make the guests feel welcome and comfortable.
Jess lives in a nice area, and when we were driving out we saw beautiful trees all lined up on the street and still showing their Autumn leaves.
It was a nice day with my family, and one that I'll remember always. Thank you Jess and Brian.
