Thanksgiving Recap

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. I hope you all did as well! We spent the day up at Lisa's(Troy's sister) house.

We feasted all day long on all the fixings- turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole(my contribution), rolls, pumpkin pie, Tiffany's peanut butter & mint chocolate cheesecakes, etc. I really wished I would have worn sweat pants, lol!!

After dinner the guys all found a spot where they could "watch the game".

But of course, even better than the food was being all together. It was so nice to have Grandma Kastens with us. She cracked us up all day long. We played lots of games: hand and foot, bananagrams, racko, and a family favorite tripoley.

Grandpa entertained us too. He told his famous suit joke for J.J.

and delighted all the children with stories that would make them scream and giggle. It was so cute to look over and see them so entralled in his tales.

Sadly Genna woke up early in the morning not feeling well at all. Her and Cuddles spent some quality time on the couch while we all ate.

Thankfully she did start feeling better. She eventually ate and had a great time playing with her cousins. Rachelle even coached her through pulling her own tooth out.

It was an awesome day where many happy memories were made!

Poor Genna! I'm glad she got to feeling better and could enjoy some Thanksgiving goodies. Peanut butter cheesecake? Yummers...
