Thankful in MN (Pink Suitcase Chronicles #34)

Just a couple of days after returning from DC, Pink was loaded up once again and sent packing to Minnesota for a family Thanksgiving with our children and Wes's parents. Talk about fun! Ellie visited our hotel room in the morning while still in her cuddly pj's and we played together before the activities of the day.
Thanks to Byerly's grocery store, we had a home-cooked Thanksgiving feast right in Elder and Muriel's apartment. We just had to heat it up. Talk about simple!
Before we ate, we once again shared our "Kernels of Thankfulness" tradition with citing three reasons for gratitude when gathered around the table. It came as no surprise that Ellie was a common theme with her parents, grandparents, great grandparents and aunt and uncle.
(Father and daughter doing kitchen duty.)
We are truly blessed. I hope that you and yours had a special Thanksgiving as well!

Looks and sounds as though you all had a great visit! Loved meeting Ms. Ellie and visiting with Anne for a bit! :)
Hope the trip home went smoothly and was uneventful! :)

Samara, the trip back went just fine - except a little gross to see all the "hunted" deer atop trucks and in trailers on the highway.

Glad you could see Anne and meet Ellie!
