This year we made the trek to Grandma and Grandpa's house in snowy Dimondale for the babies 1st Thanksgiving. It's weird that we haven't been to my parents place in almost a year. Sarah made the trip solo from Minnesota as well as my Aunt Nancy (my Mom's Sister) from North Carolina. My brother Ben and Sister-in-law Emily came for dinner and have also been popping in and out. We've done a lot of sitting around and relaxing so far. In fact, I have taken 2 naps with the babies so far today. It's really nice having all these hands to hold and feed the trio so Greta and I can take a breath.
Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays and this year we have plenty to be thankful for, so Greta started a new tradition. She cut out a bunch of leaves from construction paper. Each person wrote what they were thankful for on one of them and hung it on the tree. We then took turns pulling one off, reading it, and trying to guess who wrote it.
