Thanksgiving 2010

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year surrounded by family!  It is so nice to be somewhat close to family (we are about a 3 hour drive from Andrew's brother and his family that live in Michigan).  I think being so far from family is one of the hardest things about being a military family and it is something I very much used to take for granted.  Anyway, we drove to Michigan and spent the weekend with my brother and sister and law, our nephew Tyler, Grammy Susan, Grampa Pete, Grammy Lo, and Grandma Patty (Laura's Mom).  We had a delicious meal prepared mostly by Susan, Andrew, Peter and Josh and spent the day watching football, playing and doing crafts with the kiddos, and just enjoying each other's company.  We have so much to be thankful for this year and we feel very blessed for all that we have!

The girls helped Grampa Pete make a made from scratch apple pie, which was absolutely delicious!

Gotta taste the dough!

Adding the apples

Olivia loves to cook, however, she hates when her hands are messy.....what a dilemma!

Abby became a Jenga master over the weekend.  I couldn't believe how good she was at this game.  She won about 90% of the time, she just has the magic touch!

Abby and Olivia playing games on the i-phones waiting for dinner to be served!
