Thanksgiving 2011

We spent a few days in Illinois last week… I didn’t take very many pictures because it was hard to hold my camera and a piece of pie at the same time.  I did, however, take the camera to Torin’s first concert at Great-Grandpa Marlin’s nursing home, which was the highlight of our trip.  She played for 10 whole minutes and had the entire crowd singing along as she played “Home on the Range” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”  I’m convinced that she totally would’ve gotten a standing ovation if any of these older people could’ve stood up on their own.  I see more nursing home concerts in her future!

The weather was rainy and yucky while we were there, but that didn’t stop the kids from practicing their daredevil stunt moves on the four-wheeler at MeMe and PaPa’s.

We also helped feed the cows while we were there.  This big girl was after my husband…

…and I was not about to stand in her way.

Torin came to the rescue and lured her away with some fresh pears.  And then I went back inside, put the camera down, and ate some more pie.

On Thanksgiving Day, we enjoyed dinner with Grandpa Bob and Nana, but I was too preoccupied with the cheeseball and the bacon-wrapped-brown-sugar-coated-weenies to take any pictures.  :)  The end.
