Happy Thanksgiving!

Well I am a little late in the post as Thanksgiving has come and gone. We were down for about a week as Elly got the stomach bug and passed it to Aaron and I. Luckily we are all doing MUCH better now so I m finally able to post about Thanksgiving!

Elly had a great first Thanksgiving. Gram Lene and Auntie Chrissy came over from Monroe for the holiday and stayed until Sunday. We had all of Aaron's family over from Nanny to Cousin Lily and even Aunt Elaine joined us for a total for 17 people! We had LOTS of fun visiting with everyone and Elly enjoyed getting to play and see all her family. In actuality it wasn't as stressful hosting that many people as I thought it might be. I think it helped that everyone brought food and we ate on the fine china (aka paper plates ;-)). It was nice to have mom and Christian here and we even ventured out for a little black Friday shopping! Elly got some good deals.

Trying to get a family picture - Aaron is not too thrilled to take one.

Still trying......

Well third time wasn't a charm :-(

It was a great first Thanksgiving for Elly and we really enjoyed getting to spend time with family. Looking forward to the next few weeks with more family visits, Elly turning 9 months and celebrating Christmas!
