This year was the first Thanksgiving held in our home. We have always spent Thanksgiving with Hans' or my family, but this year we had to do all the cooking ourselves. Grandma and Grandpa Fiene came to visit us for a few days which made our Thanksgiving much more enjoyable. They flew in Thanksgiving evening so I had all day to prepare things for their arrival. The dinner, I must say, went very well. We have TONS of leftovers, but that is what Thanksgiving is for, right?

John and Grandpa being silly, cutting the turkey.

John had to stay next to Grandpa's side the whole time.

Grandma and John read lots of books the two days she was here.

We woke up to snow one morning, which John calls snowman. He asked all morning to play in the "snowman" so Grandma and Grandpa took him outside and had a snowball fight.

We were also able to go to Garden of the Gods which was beautiful.

In this picture John is throwing a snowball at Grandpa.

We had a wonderful time and I was very thankful that John and Solveig could visit us. John was very sad to see them leave and cried all the way home from the airport.
