Thanksgiving 2016

We had a busy but fun Thanksgiving.  We started the morning with Esme's weekly pictures.  Happy first Thanksgiving sweetie bear!
Our first stop was Jimmy's parents.  We got there about 10:30 to hang out for a while before eating at Noon.
It has been quite a year for this family with Jim getting his heart and March and Esme arriving in April.  We have so much to be thankful for.
As always, the spread Cherry made was amazing!  And you can't argue with 4 types of pie!
The Vikings played at 11:30 and Jimmy didn't want to miss a minute!  Esme took a nap on the floor while we got our fill.
Our next stop was a brief one at Jimmy's extended family gathering.  We are going to miss the Christmas gathering with them so I wanted to make sure they got to see and meet Esme.  She was really eyeing up cousin Chris' pumpkin pie.
The final destination was dinner with my parents.  Another delicious spread!
We invited friends from church who don't have family in MN.  I am bummed I didn't get a picture of all of them, but we had great time with Caleb, Cindy, Russell, and Paul.
Our annual pool tournament has been pretty small the last few years, so it was nice to have more players.  We gave Caleb and Cindy first round byes out of courtesy, but Cindy ended up winning!
My dad was going for the three-peat, but got beat by her in the winner's bracket and I beat him in the loser's bracket.  He said they won't get special treatment if they are brave enough to return next year!
We ended up spending the night and got to hang out with Grandpa and Nana all day Friday.  The perfect start to a 4 day weekend!
