Thursday Thirteen #22 Thanksgiving Pictures

We had such a wonderful time at Carrie's for Thanksgiving I want to share thirteen of the pictures I took to let you in on the fun we had.

Carrie, Abby and Ben made the pumpkin pie on Wednesday evening.

6:30 AM on Thursday morning the turkey is prepped to go into the oven.

Ben modeled his new JOHN DEER sweat shirt Grandpa brought him. Lots of growing room.

Abby demonstrates her skills with the giant yard pick-up sticks while we wait for things to cook.

Thursday Amy and Dave checked the paper for all those sales that were going to be on Friday.

Carrie finishes things up as we got closer to meal time. Yummm

Donna and Roger, Paul's parents, joined us for the feast and Donna got caught on clean-up duty.

Abby and Ben got to play at the pool courtesy of Aunt Carrie on Friday and Saturday mornings.

Friday evening Roger and Donna Eaton had us over for a wonderful meal.

Saturday after swimming and shopping we went out for pizza. Here an exhausted Abby plays shy in front of the camera.

Back at Carrie's, Ben posed for the camera with our Lego creation.

Mom and Dad take Abby and Ben off to bed after a round of good nights and good-byes. Grandpa and Grammar had the 6:30 AM flight the next morning.

Hey Sis, I hate to tell you this, but it's only Wednesday! I know, you just couldn't wait to share the pictures. Don't blame you a bit. They are great pictures!

Sure enough, it is only Wednesday. I hadn't noticed.

Great photos, looks like a really terrific Thanksgiving. And that is an awesome John Deere sweatshirt...

Donna said...

I love the fact that in the pick-up-sticks shot both you and Abby have your tongues stuck out in concentration. :D Great photos. Looks like y'all had a wonderful time.

Ben will grow into that sweatshirt so fast. Although, I did once get my ds a T-shirt that lasted from age 6 to age 12.

Yum on the pumpkin pie. What a nice Thanksgiving you had.

And on your sidebar - I'd love to be Elizabeth Bennet too.
