thankful

i am thankful that we were able to travel and see my grandma and grandpa in indiana for thanksgiving. little S, baby R and i started the journey together on sunday. we were traveling stand-by, so we got to the airport early and shared a cinnamon roll :)

we had time to walk around and take pictures of ourselves in the bathroom. i was really excited about my new stylish sling my talented friend, yvette, made for me.
we finally arrived, on the first flight we tried, to grandmas. i forgot the base to the carseat, so we stayed home for the first couple of days. we went for walks and had lots of fun diving into grandma's craft closet while grammy rocked baby R. he loved it.
little S all bundled up.
my mom so kindly brought the base to the car seat when she arrived. so we headed to the mall.
we stayed a few nights at my wonderful aunt susie's house. the kids had so much fun playing with her vintage toys and i had so much fun going through her vintage linens.

enjoying the leaves in a. susie's backyard.
finally it was thanksgiving. we had lots of yummy food, even special vegan mashed potatoes for me, (thanks mike :) watched some football, and even did a little irish step dancing.

some the grandkids decided to go in on getting grandpa a new chair. we went to an awesome furniture store where my uncle works. gramps tried them all out and finally found the perfect one.
we all kept ourselves busy... being very well behaved.
we visited our favorite apple orchard... tuttles. the best carmel apples ever.
we had tons of fun with our good friends... on the stadler's farm

S was thrilled to ride a horse all by herself.
we then headed over to little S's god-parents home. the Timkos. we all went to college together and always have a blast when we reunite.
we tried to make this cake non-dairy and it was more like cake soup. i ate it anyway.
we have been busy since college.... this pic is missing 2 kids.
we were sad when it was time to go home. i am so thankful for my friends and family.
