Nothing Like It...

Nothing like being with family at Thanksgiving!

This year we were in Colorado with Joel, Sarah, Anders (3) and Cade (16 months). We had great weather and a fun time together. On Monday we moved Cade up from the nursery to his big boy room and Joel/Sarah's office down to the former nursery. It's all up and running, complete with decorated walls! A good job done.

Another day we spent the morning at Denver's new IKEA...lots of great ideas! We also visited dear friends...Dan and Julie in their newly renovated kitchen/living space, and Larry, Fran and Bekah at Chick fil a.

On Friday before we left for home, we spent the morning at the Denver Zoo. What a great place!

Thanksgiving was a relaxing day at home. We fed the boys at noon and put them down for naps. Then finished up the food prep and enjoyed a nice quiet turkey dinner!

The Denver Zoo

Black Friday is a GREAT day to visit the Zoo in Denver!

Not too many people...and it is cool so the animals are active!

Happy Thanksgiving

How did this NOT get published??? This is Thanksgiving in 2009 at Aimee and Gary's home in Virginia. It's when we all found out that Ander's was going to be a big brother in July. I uploaded the pictures but never got them posted. So, here they are ~ looks like we had a great time together!

First Adventures in Georgia!

In June, Aimee and Gary moved to Georgia for Gary's new job as Executive Director of Faith and Freedom Coalition!  It was a very busy time for them but they are happy in their new setting.  We finally made it down to see them in September...and love their new home, housing area, and the beautiful hills of Georgia.  We will spend years getting to know the Atlanta area ~ with so very much to see and do.
We made one trip down to Atlanta on Saturday during our stay ~ and enjoyed the Georgia Aquariam.  On Sunday afternoon we drove up into the mountains for a great afternoon of apple picking.  We were able to see Faith play soccer, tennis lessons for the girls, visit their new church and elementary was a whirlwind trip and great fun.
