Thanksgiving 2011

We began our Thanksgiving at the airport!

Picking up the new Uncle & Auntie from Seattle...

Responses to meeting their new niece!!

Harlow in all her cuteness...

I was a happy Momma surrounded by my children ♥

dear daughter-in-laws Mom in Seattle!

A bountiful table...

My amazing family...
4 generations
Hubs, his Mother, Baby Harlow & dear daughter

♥ ♥ Happy Grandparents ♥ ♥

I had a wonderful and very thankful Thanksgiving.  I've been off for 9 days and have had my family together every single day!!!  We shared meals and much simple time chatting!  My hearts is heavy today as we took the kids to the airport as they return to their life in Seattle and I will not see Harlow & her parents until the weekend.

I will keep these days close to my heart as I too return to the real world :-)  Gearing up for Christmas and all the excitement of the season...

Cooking marathon!

Today we spent the morning cooking meals
to freeze for daughter & her husband!

It will be nice for them once the baby arrives
to not have meals to worry about!

We shopped early in the morning

First up was potato-corn chowder

Hubs made blueberry scones

Boiled chicken breasts were shredded

Hawaiian style pizzas

Mexican lasagna

Traditional lasagna

It was a fun morning cooking with hubs and dear daughter -
All dishes were par-frozen and we used seal-a-meal to continue their freezing process!
