To Grandmother's House We Go...

We made it safe to Gramma G's house in Florida for Thanksgiving. We had a bit of a bumpy start - we got to the airport in the morning and discovered that we were rescheduled for a 7pm flight. Our second try went pretty smoothly. Papa and Grammy helped us get unloaded and to the gate. It was past bedtime so the flight was a bit rough, but at least it was only a two and a half hour trip.

The traveling was well worth it. The kids had a blast at Grandma's house. She had lots of new toys for them, a nursery set up with three pack and plays and animal art work hung especially for them at their eye level. Grandma G also hosted a big open house for friends to meet her grandbabies. We had a great turnout and the babies enjoyed all the attention. Another highlight was playing with Aunt Audrey. Her dog Gracie was a bit hit too. Especially with Will who is crazy for dogs.

Their first thanksgiving dinner got cheers all around.

And Will got the drumstick.

Lily loves using her big girl spoon.

Mmmmm...mashed potatoes. Hope you all had a great thanksgiving too.

Thanks Grandma G!

What a wonderful visit. I'm so happy their first visit to Gainesville, Florida was a memorable one. Thanksgiving day with friends and family couldn't have been nicer. Imagine they slept while we ate. The Open House on Friday was attended by 45 neighbors and friends.Saturday was great when the UF was victorious over their arch rivals FSU....nice!
Thanks for the memories!

Looks like you guys had a great Thanksgiving. I love the picture of Lily running in the yard... that is gorgeous! Are they signing "all done" in the picture at the table with their hands in the air?
