Thanksgiving in Chicago

This year instead of making the usual trek to Franklin to be with Dane's parents, we headed downtown Chicago to celebrate with 2 of Dane's siblings and their spouses. We hosted Gavin and Esther at our house for the long weekend. Zachary had a blast bonding with his aunt and uncle.

Thursday morning it snowed for the first time, which made Stacey very happy! (Unfortunately it didn't accumulate.) In the afternoon we all headed to John and Krista's where Krista had an unbelievable meal waiting for us!

Turkey, gravy, corn bread stuffing, mashed potatoes, creamed corn, sweet potato casserole, salad, green beans, cranberry sauce, rolls, pumpkin pie, and Dane's favorite - strawberry rhubarb pie! All I can say is yum. Thank you Krista!!

Esther's sister and friend were able to join us as well as another couple who knew Krista. With all those people and their full bellies what could we do but sit around and play games?? Well, at least the less competitive people were able to stay in their seats. :) Zachary loved being in the middle of all the action.
