Happy Thanksgiving

On Thursday, we celebrated Thanksgiving at Mimi and Pop-Pop's house. Everyone came to have dinner with us! Of course there was Mimi, Pop-Pop and Great-Grammy Mary as well as Tutu, Sir, Aunt Nora (home from the frozen north of Montana), Uncle Jon, Aunt Jenn, Cousin Jack, Uncle Mike, Aunt Marisa and Cousin Ella, Jack's Po-Po Grace and Yee-Yee Shari, and our good friends Dele and Jessica (who is now back in the states after studying abroad in York, England...congrats on your master's degree, Jess!).
Here I am fueling up with a little snack before our guests arrived. I'm now hooked on veggie sticks. I don't know that there are veggies in them so Mommy says not to tell me so I keep eating them.
Here's a shot of the table before dinner. It was lovely and so very festive!
And here are our chefs for the day...Pop-Pop and Mimi. But everyone brought a little something to share with all of us. There was turkey, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, homemade bread, salad, two kinds of stuffing, plus my hand turkey cookies and pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. What a feast, huh?
Here are Mimi, Dele, Grammy and Jessica having some snacks, too.
And here is what guys do before the food is served. I gotta get me one of those cell phone things I think.
Here I am with my Tutu. I just love her to pieces!
And here I am having some wine with Aunt Nora and Daddy. OK, so the adults were having the wine...I had juice.
Mimi and Pop-Pop broke out all there electronic Christmas friends for us. Here I am checking out Tigger and Roo. Gotta love them!
Then it was finally time for dinner! Here's the "adult" table.
And don't forget Ella. Here she is with her Mommy and Daddy.
Ella loved her dinner. She tried just about everything.
And here's the "kids" table. Jack and I sat at our own little blue table. We didn't sit long enough for Mommy to get a good shot of us.
Friday was Mimi's birthday. She's 65! So we celebrated on Thursday. Here she is opening my gift. I had to help with the paper.
It was a photo of us together. Cute, huh? She loved it!
All of Mimi's kiddos and Pop-Pop also pitched in to get her a Kindle. Mommy says it's a digital book player. I have no idea what that is but it looked cool.
Here's uncle Jon showing her how to work it. She even ordered her first book on the spot. Neat!
Mimi also got this beautiful silk scarf from Tutu and Sir. Lovely!
Mommy and Daddy attempted to take a family photo but I was too busy so I whined during the photo taking. Nice try, people.
Then Mimi broke out the Play-Do. Yeah! Us three kids had a great time making all sorts of things.
Grammy helped me. We made shape tubes. It was fun!
Thank goodness Tutu brought her iPad because it entertained us kids for quite a while. We played "Peek-a-Boo Farm" and we watched the "faeries."
And no visit at Mimi and Pop-Pop's house would be complete without playing the piano. Ella played with Sir...
And Jack and I played after our bath. We were on fire!
Well, it sure was a great Thanksgiving! I am sure thankful for all of our family and friends. Let's do it again next year!
