A few years ago we started having Christmas while we were at Papa and Nana's for Thanksgiving. It was the only time that our immediate family was together alone during the holidays. As the kids get older it is harder to make them wait when we arrive for Thanksgiving. They are wanting to hurry and eat the turkey and be thankful so we can move along to the presents! The kids got some new toys and clothes (praise the Lord) and everyone was happy and even more thankful. Notice Uncle Tommy's new pink life jacket he received. That is so he won't drown we he goes into the water to retrieve his golf balls!
