[I know, dear readers, that Thanksgiving has come and gone. Alas, so did the time I had for blogging when I began full time employment...heavy sigh.]
Indiana came to Clinton for Thanksgiving for the first time. The Kileys all climbed in their cars and made the nine hour trek through rain and mountains to spend the Thanksgiving Holiday with us.
The table was festively set...
And we all set down to a wonderful Thanksgiving meal.
One thing we were grateful for is that the kids' table was in another room.
The cousins had a great time together. The top fun thing to do was the next door neighbor's zip line. The adults were bummed that it was not designed hold our weight minus thanksgiving dinner.
The girls played dress up and created works of art.
Jack was channeling his inner Rambo...
We've got a great old Magnolia tree in the front yard. I think every single cousin and maybe even a stray aunt or uncle were in this tree at some point during the weekend.
The Hampton Inn's hot tub was a hit with all the kids since the pool wasn't heated.
And Christmas came to early to the Kiley cousins.
Jack gets to explore all things great and small
The girls and their American girls got matching dresses
Best of all, the professor and I were lucky enough to be given a yodeling pickle...ah, the memories.
Please enjoy the yodeling as we did and still do.
I know you'll be tempted to play this over and over...it is mesmerizing. But please practice some restraint. And, instead, anticipate Thanksgiving Part Two: Ninety Six - A 1700's Holiday. Hopefully I'll get it posted before 2700.
