Our Day of Thanks

This year we have so much to be thankful for, just as in years past. Our families, our friends, our health. Although we were busy, it was a very successful first Thanksgiving with our Anna. We left our house early in the morning. Justin and Brice dropped Anna and I off at the Ruffin's. Anna was able to meet her Great Grandpa Ruffin and his wife Helen. Both of them look so good, it's unbelievable! Justin and Brice headed over to the Reynolds' to help Robin lift and then stuff her turkey. It was over 20 pounds so it was heavy! We all watched the parade at the respective houses.

See?Helen, Grandma and Anna
Grandma, Brice and Grandpa (who is actually my dad's dad)
You will see Anna's first Thanksgiving dinner below which we had at the Ruffin's. It was delicious, as always! After we all digested for a little bit and visited, we then headed over to the Reynolds' where, as Brice told Anna, there were "hundreds of people"! Their dinner had already begun so we just snuck in and Justin grabbed some extra sides while Brice and I waited for our second round of desserts!
Anna gets one year on Pa's lap at the head of the table! Enjoy it while you can girl because next year you're going to get demoted!
Anna was very entertained by everyone at the Reynolds'. She was quite cheery for not napping well. Here she is playing peek-a-boo with Robin's mom, "Nanny".
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year! Most of our Christmas decorations are up and I have changed the blog to reflect the season. I thought the background was a good combination of girly and Christmas-y since we are celebrating our little girls birthday in a couple of weeks! I may have several different backgrounds throughout the season so keep checking back!
