As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

Two Days of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was a two day event in the Stone household. We had turkey at our house after we were unable to volunteer because the children weren't old enough (we'll have to start earlier next year!). So Wednesday, I cooked all day and we had Thanksgiving Day at our house. We spent the day.....

getting our clothes stuck in our braces

wearing our new, super cool boots...

wearing Charlotte's mobile as a hat....

and after dinner, posing for the Christmas card picture.

On Thursday, the day we had planned to volunteer, we invited ourselves to Nanny's for Thanksgiving. But before we went, I had some fun creative time with Hannah making "craps." Now before you think I'm cursing on the blog, that's Hannah's word for crafts. Our creation this morning was her name out of Fruit Loops. We really did spell it correctly, but one of the dogs ate the other "n!"
Once we got to Nanny's, there was lots of good food, and fun on the slide

fun running around the yard chasing a ball

fun on the swings
a fun game of Catch Phrase with the King cousins

some post-turkey relaxation/football watching

some snuggle time with PawPaw Somehow all the grandchildren just know to climb up in the chair with PawPaw--she got tired, as she had missed her nap. She asked for her "ba" and then climbed up into the chair for a snuggle.

We came home just in time for Charlotte to have a nap, and for me to finish my latest book and have a quick snooze as well. When I got up, I found that Maddy and Hannah had been working hard!
Our night ended with some fun that the big kids used to always have--a chair fort!

So much to be thankful for this year!
Hope your Thanksgiving was blessed with family, fun, and love!
