Giving Thanks

Over the last seven days, this little family of ours drove 7 hours round-trip to Yakima for an early Shirzad Thanksgiving and about 11 hours round-trip to Bellingham for Thanksgiving my with sisters and their families. It was so much fun to spend all that time with family and well worth the driving. I am so thankful for our amazing extended families on both sides and happy we didn't encounter any difficult driving weather either.

I'm a photo slacker this month and don't have any pictures of the Yakima turkey day. The next day we did take the girls to the park to feed the ducks. In the summer these ducks are overfed and turn their noses up at our stale bread, but this time of the year when its 20 degrees out, they are starving and so happy to see us.

In Bellingham, I helped Lydia cook turkey dinner for twenty people and the cousins played all day long. It had been a while since we had all seven cousins (both my sisters' kids plus mine) together. We celebrated Ben and Sophia's birthdays after dinner (both born December 1st) and then took all the little kids to see the movie Frozen the next day.
