We were able to be with Katrina’s family  and some of Micah’s family for Thankgiving this year.  Micah’s dad, step-mom and step-sister drove up to be with us for the Thanksgiving weekend, from Virginia.  It was nice being able to be with them for the holiday this year and enjoy some relaxing days together.  On Thanksgiving day, all of Katrina’s dad’s side of the family, the Renno’s, have a big meal together.  Last year there was barely enough room for everyone in my cousins house, so this year they needed a bigger place.  They ended up holding it at the church we attend in town, which has a lot more room that a normal sized house.  It wasn’t homey feeling like it’s nice to have, but it was a great place to be able for everyone to sit around the table, at one time, and the kids had lots of room to run and play, inside and out.  It was so nice to be in PA this year for Thanksgiving and be able to enjoy family time.

On a different note, we still have not gotten a camera… these pictures were taken by my Dad.  Thanks Dad!

Violet wanted to hug the vampire. Sure, why not. They need hugs too, right?

Gotta get their shakes! So good! Even when its chilly out.

As soon as we got here to Micah’s mom’s house, Micah felt the need to clean up the outside of the house, trim the bushes, rake out the leaves, etc.  The exact same thing happened last time we were in CA documented here.  So Micah and his brother Caleb got right to work.  Rachel and the girls and I mostly watched and enjoyed the nice warm weather.
