Thanksgiving week Happenings…

November 30, 2010 § 1 Comment

Here’s the awaited post of our Thanksgiving week festivities. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday for many reasons:

  • It’s usually a non-desirable Holiday for most people and so I can usually get it off work
  • It’s a really loooonnnggg weekend and Ben and I usually have the Thursday-Sunday off to be together
  • It’s a low-stress holiday. All you have to do is make food and enjoy it with people you love and care about. Now, who wouldn’t like that??


Thursday we spent part of the day with Ben’s family:

One of my bros-in-law scarfing down the good stuff


Maris (almost 2) playing with Sydney


Ben “helping” Maris smile for the picture


The Menenberg gang (missing Alex)


The Leyde family

*I didn’t get a picture of the 5 of us on my camera…long story. The short of it is that Thanksgiving is usually the time we try to take a “nice” family photo for Christmas cards and we *ahem* dad *ahem* were very focused on getting one on my parents camera…anyway…

We all partook of communion during our family dinner which was a first time for us and very special


Yumm….the devastation after the feast


Friday, we had lunch with friends and my favorite god daughter…oh my gosh!! I love her to pieces (and her mama too!)



Winter (10 months)

Winter loves her daddy, Dereck!

We all made an attempt…

…but Ben dominated at Settlers (Go, babe!)


Saturday we celebrated our favorite 13 year old…Madison (Ben’s sister)!

One of her besties, Anthie

Ben’s Grandpa and Grandma


Opening gifts

Syd and Jody (my MIL)

Madison, you’re beautiful and a wonderful young lady. We’re so proud of you!
