Thanksgiving

How is it possible that Thanksgiving has come and gone?  I don't know how that happened.  It went much too fast but it was really nice.  We got to have a nice meal with Gigi and one with Dobbie and Papa.  We were gone for 5 days and split our time between both homes.  The girls were in Heaven to be with their grandpas and grandma.  Here are some pics of our holiday.

These are the shirts I made for the girls this year.  They were really simple.  The tutorial can be found HERE.

We put up Gigi's Christmas tree for him while we were there.  The girls got to hang the ornaments.  Most of the ones we use on his tree are ones that Mimi made which makes it really special.

Then we were off to Dobbie and Papa's.  We got to have the meal with Kevin's cousin and her kids which made it even more special.

There is always a big time bubble bath in Dobbie's whirlpool.  They LOVE this!

We got to spend our time at Dobbie and Papa's with one of our nieces who was there for the holiday also.  She was so good with Peanut and Pumpkin and kept them entertained.

On our way home we drove through our state capital to see the Christmas lights.  We even stopped to walk around.  It really was beautiful.

So this holiday is over and we prepare for the next.  My goal is to keep Christmas simple this year and to focus on why we celebrate this wonderful season.  I don't want to get caught up in the commercialism.  I want the girls to know the importance of Christmas this year.

What a great Thanksgiving. You are so crafty. I don't think I could ever make a shirt. I'd staple a napkin to it and call it done.
I miss you!
