So THANKFUL for.....

Ross, Jensen and I got to travel to Iowa for a few days to visit family for Thanksgiving.  We had a great time seeing everyone and were busy helping Grandma and Grandpa Valentine get ready for Christmas.  We have so many things to be thankful for and one of them is that my mother, who was very ill for most of this last year, is able to be at home and improving every day.  Here are some of our THANKFUL highlights from the visit:
Ross and Grandpa got the outdoors all Decorated while   

Jensen got the inside done!!
Grandma and Grandpa Nederhoff joined us for Turkey dinner and a good visit.  We also visited with Aunt Rhonda and Aunt Deb.

My aunt Judy came by to bring us some yummy salad and Rolls for our dinner and we had fun catching up with her.  She is Grandma Eileen's sister, and a fantastic cook!!

Jensen and Grandma Eileen had time to work on a blanket together.  Jensen also enjoyed setting up Great Grandma's nativity.

 The Thanksgiving Day parades are always a favorite that we can't miss!  We are so thankful for being able to be with the family this year and be helpful to Grandma and Grandpa.  It was a blessing for the kids to be able to see them and spend time with all the family we saw in Iowa.
