Van Cleave Family Meal

After church on Sunday we went down to Jared's parents for a delicious Thanksgiving meal. I think I gained five pounds this weekend with all the good cooking we had! During the meal, we went around the table to share one thing we were thankful for...we have so much to be thankful for living in America. We enjoyed spending time together in their new addition and Brenna & Easton had fun playing together too.

On our way home we drove through the Jolly Holiday Lights in Des Moines with Caleb, Maranda, and Easton in their new van. The kids loved looking at all the Christmas lights and Easton had fun driving with his daddy!

Fun Thanksgiving Weekend

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at Ryan & Dana's house, my brother & sister-in-law's, in Eden Prairie, MN. They made a traditional Thanksgiving meal and the turkey turned out awesome, along with the rest of the meal. Besides the Thanksgiving meal, some of the highlights were going to a few thrift stores, playing poker, going on a walk around a lake near their house, eating yummy food, Brenna learning to sign "more" (Thanks, Dad!), and last but not least spending time with my family. See Ryan & Dana's blog for more details.

Thanks, Ryan & Dana, for hosting our family Thanksgiving. You have a beautiful home and we had a wonderful time.
