Thanksgiving Day

On Thanksgiving Day we headed to my parents for dinner. My parents live close, only about 10 miles. My brother, his wife, and son were able to come home for Thanksgiving also. Then my aunt, uncle and cousin from Lincoln also joined us for dinner. I made the apple/snicker salad to take along and as usual the bowl came home empty. Cara always wishes that there would be some left to eat later, but the bowl usually comes home empty. We stayed until 3:00 in the afternoon and then I left for Lincoln to prepare for Black Friday and Keith and the kids left for his parents to spend the rest of the day.

Justin and Chase were checking out the new puppy in the kennel.

They had to get real close.

Chase, Cammy and Ashlin were making beaded necklaces.

Sitting around after dinner talking.

Also, on Saturday afternoon our kids went back to Grandpa and Grandma's to decorate Christmas cookies and string fruit loops for the Christmas tree. My Mom uses the strung fruit loops as the garland on her tree. She started having the grandkids string fruit loops and decorate cookies when my girls were little. They have so much fun and best of all the mess stays at Grandma's house.

Take care,


  1. It sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving! I love your apple/Snickers salad! That would have gone great with our big 'ole sandwiches on Black Friday!

    How fun for the kids to help Grandma Korth with her Christmas tree decorations. I still remember how much fun I had making jewelry at my Grandma's house when I was growing up!

    Hope you have a great week!

  2. The fruit loop garland sounds absolutely precious! What a great tradition.

  3. Sounds like lots of fun. What a great grandma tradition.
