This year we got to have two Thanksgivings, sort of. As my previous post mentioned we went to South Carolina to visit Josephs family. We had a wonderful trip and were happy to see everyone, until Thanksgiving. Unfortunately before we even got to eat, my mother-in-law Margaret, fell and compound fractured her left ankle. So I spent most of the time keeping all the kids outside and distracted while we waited for the ambulance to come and take Grandma away. She was rushed into surgery right away. Fortunately they were able to fix everything, but she broke both bones completely so she has a very long road to recover, and we wish her lots of love and wishes to get better as fast a possible. After all that, we tried to get all the kids some food and clean up everything. Unfortunately we had to leave very early the next day for the airport, so we did not even get the see her.

Once we were home, and very happy to be there, we had Thanksgiving dinner with my family on Saturday. It was nice of my Mom to wait for us to come home to cook. She makes the most amazing Thanksgiving ever!!! We had a really nice dinner and then a few of us rushed off to go see Twilight!

Before all the drama, I was able to get this really sweet picture of the twins!
