wednesday night we drove up to grand rapids to spend thanksgiving with my family. its always great to see everyone, and its so good for ledger to spend some time with his loving cousins! my mom was, as always, thrilled to have us up for a few days. thursday morning we got up nice and early and went to church. afterwards, everyone came over to mom and papa's for the feast! the rest of the day was spent recovering from the gorging... the kids all played around and had a grand old time, i even got in on the fun!
friday we went around town and did a little bit of shopping- none of that 'black friday' shopping, we waited until late afternoon, when all the crazy shoppers had already gone home and were taking their naps. the whole weekend was a flurry of activity and went by too quick! we had to be back home saturday afternoon, so we had to cram everything in while we had the time. don't worry mema, we will see you again soon for christmas!
