This Thanksgiving we were most thankful for Grandmother Suzanne's health! She was in the hospital up until 2 days before, so we changed our plans and decided to stay close. We certainly did miss everyone in Newton! However, Josh and I hosted and cooked our first Thanksgiving dinner all by ourselves. Although we were a little skeptical about how it would go (okay, I was skeptical... Josh was excited!), it could not have been more fun! Josh and I worked together and everything turned out great!
With only a few days notice, we made do with what table decor we had. I had a great idea for an art project with Caroline and thought she would LOVE making turkies out of her handprints. Boy was I wrong! The second I put the paint on her hand, she looked at me like I was crazy doing something terrible to her! So, I basically got one actual handprint from her. However, I ended up copying each one and using them for place cards.
The Boys even battled the cold for a little football!
