The girls woke up this morning and were so excited to help Lorene make preparations for our Thanksgiving feast. Abby helped mix the stuffing and stuff the turkey. Emma was super diligent in peeling the sweet potatoes. I enjoyed watching my girls learn some great skills. Most of the day before our dinner was spent playing in Grandpa's backyard swinging and riding on the tractor.
Thanksgiving was a huge gathering of family with the Grandpa and Lorene, the Holtom Family, The Virginia Wilhelm Family, the Colorado Wilhelm family, and Brooks' cousin and her husband. The food was delicious and the company was very entertaining. I could tell that Grandpa Al was so happy to have all of his kids and grandkids together for Thanksgiving dinner this year. It is always nice to be reminded of how blessed we are to have such a wonderful extended family.
