Thanksgiving 2005

Happy Thanksgiving!

Our Thanksgiving weekend was packed with lots of time with family and friends.

We headed to Freeport, IL to spend a couple of days with Jani's folks. This is their first year back in the cuontry, so they wanted to host this year's gathering. The girls had a ball playing with their younger cousins, Marissa age 11 and Alyssa age 4 (nearly 5).

We did some fun holiday baking too. I love this picture of Alyssa and Rowan. Alyssa is sneaking a little taste of the batter, only to find out that what she was tasting was a big bite of Crisco. The look on her face is incredibly cute.

We even got some snow!!! We failed to get pictures of the kids playing in it though. Jani was up to her eyebrows in cutting out pictures for our annual photo calendar and I was up to my elbows in flour making candy cane cookies. Even Grandma was busy at her sewing machine, hemmng pants for Gemma and Alyssa.

And, according to the Thanksgiving meal calorie counter at

I only need to walk 13.75 miles to work off the Thanksgiving Day meal. (-:
