Our Thanksgiving this year was a week long extravaganza.
Last weekend we got together with my family at my sister's house just over the river in Washington. It doesn't snow much around here, even during the winter so when it started snowing we all got really excited. Luckily it stopped after a few hours so we were able to get home safely.

He loved watching his uncles and cousins playing in the snow:
(I have no idea why this is underlined, and no matter what I do it's still underlined. Ugh!)
Showing off his skills:
On Thanksgiving we were planning on going to visit Chris' family but Bennett had a pretty nasty cold that we didn't want to pass onto his cousins so we were graciously invited to have dinner at our friends Keith and Jeanie's house along with their family and some friends from our house church.
I didn't take many pictures but the food was amazing and even the water was fancy:
There is my cheesecake among all of the other yummy desserts:
Sidenote- for the past few weeks I have been working on memorizing all the books of the Bible in order (something I had never done before) and Chris told me that when I had all 66 down that I would get a surprise...
(luckily I fit into the big-kid sizes, they go up to a women's 8 and are so much cheaper!
They are much less floppy than the women's sizes too. Thanks Chris!)
While we were out christening my boots and avoiding disaster, we decided to stop in at Violetta for some yumminess. Chris got an amazing burger with motzeralla and their famous 10-hour tomatoes. I got a 3-cheese grilled cheese sandwich with carmelized onions and Bennett had cheerios.
And to our surprise, they had free homemade dark hot chocolate for customers with lots of yummies to put in it! Soo good!
