Thanksgiving

We Were Thankful for...

1) safe travel for our daughter, son-in-law, and their two children (our grandchildren!),
2) a warm home,
3) plenty of good food,
4) good conversation and entertainment by the children(!)
5) and a quiet dog. ;-)

Sidney didn't bark when they came. That made our 4-year-old grandson very relieved and happy. Our nearly two-year-old granddaughter squealed and giggled with delight because she'd forgotten that there Was a Sidney.
Sidney... being quiet.

Ready to leave to see the lighting of the town square.
(The Friday night following Thanksgiving, the town square's Christmas lights are lit,
Santa comes to town, pony rides are given, and carolers sing.)
And "binkie" goes nearly everywhere... just in case.
Just Being Silly!

Our Entertainment!


Time passed too quickly!
Two days weren't quite long enough for this Grandma,
but maybe it was long enough for everyone else. (They had to travel
to another Grandma and Grandpa's house on Saturday.)

Quick Trip to Omaha to "Hug Up" Family!

November 8 - 12, 2007

My goodness! I hadn't been in Omaha to visit C & K and L & A since August. For Shame!

I left around noon on Thursday the 8th and arrived 4 hours and 15 minutes later. Three fourths of my family was on the curb when I arrived. Talk about a warm welcome!Great Grass!
And who's that fellow hiding behind it? ;-)

Brother and Sister "chillin'!"

Great Grandma's baby blanket ("binkie") goes everywhere!

Perhaps she's singing for her supper?
Or for a knight from the Playmobile catalog? (!)

Now, how can you resist that smile?
Saturday morning
We went for a walk (and a bit of a run) on a nearby campus.

Here's our stroller-rider. Notice what she's "reading?"


And, I just kept buzzing around everyone with my camera,
hoping to get good photos!

Saturday evening.
Daughter C and a few of her friends held an art/craft sale (in C & K's home).
It was a lot of fun. There was a great turn-out.Just a few photos of some of the items to be sold.


Each contributor to the sale brought finger food and/or
a bottle of wine.
On Sunday, after Church services, we took a trip to the grocery store.
This is a great place. Free samples, too!Is that another "Playmo" book? :-)

L Loves Preschool!

While he was in preschool, we 3 generation girls went shopping!
First, a stop at the mall playground.(I have a beautiful daughter and granddaughter!)The 4 days went WAY too quickly.
It was hard to leave for home after lunch on Monday.

But, They will be Here for Thanksgiving!
