Happy Turkey Day!

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It was so nice being able to spend time with family and reflect on all that we have to be thankful for not only today but everyday. What a blessing it is to have good health, great friends, and a happy family! Just a few pictures of our little man being such a big boy! Here he is eating cheese and green beans on his very first Thanksgiving!! A few more of his big boy favorites include: wheat bread, cooked carrots, carrot souffle, mashed potatoes and any things else he can feed himself!!
On Friday, we continued a Mennel Girls Family Tradition by starting the day off with a little Early Bird Shopping. This year, Carter made the trip too! I know it sounds crazy but hey he wakes up that early everyday, why not take him along. So, with Carter in his Santa hat and PJ's, we shopped 'til we dropped. Then we all met up for dinner before the annual Indianapolis Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony downtown! It was so much fun taking Carter to see something that I have always enjoyed. I hope in years to come that he will enjoy it as much as I have over the years.

Us and our babies! Holly, Ceili, Shawna, Keira, Jamie and Carter! We just wish Ash, mom and dad could have come along. Ash had a school project she had to work on so they stayed behind to keep her company...I guess there is always next year!!

It was great to spend time with everyone last weekend - it wouldn't be Thanksgiving if we weren't all there!! Hopefully Mom, Dad and Ash will make it to the Tree Lighting next year!
