Thanksgiving this year was spent in Sioux Falls, SD. We had a great time with Ryan's family, hanging out, watching movies, making appetizers, playing games and casually chatting by the fireplace. The best part about Thanksgiving this year was the weather- it was a gorgeous 55 degrees through the weekend- coats weren't needed during the day! It was fantastic!

On Thanksgiving morning, Mike, Denise, Sara and Melissa prepared the turkey.

A lot of laughter ensued while Melissa and Sara did their best to stuff and prepare the turkey. I'm pretty sure this was their very first time getting a Thanksgiving Turkey ready for the big day!

The weather all weekend was quite wonderful, and Lola was able to play outside to her heart's delight!

One evening we went out to eat at Wild Sage Grille in Sioux Falls. While we waiting outside for our table, Melissa happened to kick this post...and the concrete crumbled. She replaced it nicely.

After dinner that night we went to a Christmas parade in Downtown Sioux Falls. It was fun to kick off the Christmas season with some floats and lights.

On our last night in Sioux Falls, we all helped to prepare appetizers and dinner. We also learned while we were in Sioux Falls for Thanksgiving that Mike and Sara are going to have a little girl in April. How fun!
