Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for family and to be with them as best you can. It's been nice to have Mitzi and her family in Omaha these past few years and to be able to join them for the Thanksgiving holiday. This year we were able to be together. Kathy was able to come from Alabama so that was also very nice. Mitzi was gracious enough to make a beautiful table with beautiful table settings. The silver is family silver and it was so nice to be able to enjoy it for Thanksgiving.
Here are Aly, her son, Logan, and her boyfriend, Robert, waiting for the food.
Nicholas and Christian are looking pretty patient while they wait for the food to be put on the table.
The food is being served. It was a joint effort and it all tasted so good. Thanks to all who contributed.
After dinner we visited for a while. One thing we did was watch Christian's turtle eat his Thanksgiving dinner.
Then we sat around the table and played some very fun games. That's one thing the Cardonas enjoy doing. It's a good time to laugh too.
Father and son back in the kitchen just goofing off.

The next day we invited Logan and Aly to come swim at the motel so everyone came eventually.
At the beginning, Logan clutched onto Aly, but Aly gave Logan to me, and I just played with him, getting him to feel more comfortable in water and teaching him some skills.
At the end Logan was floating around on his own and doing all kinds of things. Grandma Mitzi thinks she should sign him up for swimming lessons.
While we swam, Robert did a little homework on his computer. He didn't bring his swim trunks.
Later we hung out at the house. Logan decided to do what Riley, the dog, did.
We got the Wii out and tried some Zumba, but not everyone was very interested so we did Glee singing. That was a lot more popular with everyone.l
Afterwards, at Kathy's request, we played Apples to Apples for a short period of time. Then it was time to say good night and good-bye.
Thanks, everyone, for a great Thanksgiving.
