Thanksgiving 2008 and Christmas Decorating

We had such a great time this Thanksgiving and have so much to be thankful for.  As always, we celebrated with Chris' family at MeMaw's house in Heiberger and had lunch in Marion.  Drew, Catherine and Mary Evelyn loved being with their cousins.  We decided to rent an RV this year and that just added to the excitement and laughs!  We were truly the Griswalds.  Chris' sister, Rebecca, her boyfriend, Lane and Morgan, her little boy spent the weekend with us in Birmingham.

Fun with Family

We ventured back out to Homestead Hollow last weekend with my mom, sister, cousin Jyl, her 2 little ones, Jackson and Isabel, and my Aunt Jan. Mary Evelyn remembered riding the pony from last time and she was so excited to do it again. Jackson also loved it! Isabel was not interested in riding the pony, she was loving her kettle corn!

Isn't he handsome!

Isabel praying she won't have to touch any of the
animals in the petting zoo!

Trick or Treat!

Mary Evelyn had so much fun Trick or Treating this year. She understands what candy is now and asks for her "bag" all the time. One of her favorite phrases is "so excited!" We heard a lot of that yesterday. We decided to trick or treat in downtown Springville - it was really nice. It is such a cute little town. Chris came straight from work and ME got so excited when she saw him. I was glad he got to be here - he had to get up at 4:00 this morning to start his annual North Dakota hunting trip with the guys in my family. I was also glad that Nana was able to ride along with us and see Mary Evelyn have such a good time.

This is what she did when she saw her Daddy coming.

Sweet (and a little silly) Grandmalu!
