Yesterday we celebrated Thanksgiving with my side of the family.
Santa visited and was a hit.
Ella and Zoe were surprised and excited
when they saw who was at the door : )
Santa read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' . . .
Ella told Santa she helps set the table (which she does sometimes) and that she wants a little doll for Christmas. I had no idea.
Zoe told Santa that she cleans up her toys (which she also does sometimes) and that she would like a few Little People and some cars. Again, I had no idea.
Santa gave each child a gift of two books
and let the little ones jingle the jingle bells
as we all sang 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas'.
The other big hit?
Grama and Grampa got a new PUPPY!!
She's a 10 week old, 18 pound Ivory Lab.
Her name is Annie and she's a perfect fit for our family : )
It was a great day -- always nice to spend time with family
and the food was FANTASTIC. We have a lot to be thankful for.
We even got a family photo
where all four of us were looking at the camera . . .
. . . which was pretty good considering some of the other pictures
looked more like this : )
