thanksgiving

Enter his gates with Thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise His name.  For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.  
Psalm 100:4-5

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with SO much to be thankful for!

We spent Thanksgiving with my family at my parent's house.  My mom bought this cool cardboard house for Ellie.  You can even color it.  She thought it was great and was zooming (as you can see in the picture) in and out of it.  

She especially liked it when someone would come in with her.  What a fun grammy!

There was lots of fun cousin time.  

Ellie liked giving Cora hugs and kisses.  This reminded Anne and I of our childhood days. My sister was ALWAYS smothering me with hugs and kisses and I HATED it.  I was a child who needed my space.  Cora may be a little bit like her mamma!

My grandparents joined us for Thanksgiving.  It was great having them!  Grandma helped take good care of Cora during all the festivities.

Here are the boys working so hard cutting the turkey.  I'm not so sure about that grandpa in the overalls though.  It looks like he may just be eating the turkey!  I didn't get a picture of my mom in on the cooking action.  She did MOST of the work.  Thanks mom for the delicious meal!

Our Thanksgiving dinner was followed by lots of laughs.  It was so fun to sit around and be goofy together.

And this...
This was the reason for a lot of our laughs.  We got out the play dough for Ellie, but I think the grownups had more fun with it.  It turned into a whole story...with characters and play dough food.  Joel was the photographer and I have TONS of pictures of the "play dough drama". Maybe we will save that for another post! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving too!
