Thanksgiving in Galesburg and Iowa City

Thanksgiving in Galesburg usually means basketball.  On Wednesday night we went to Tyler's game.  Mara loved sitting with her cousin, Katie.

 After the kids went to bed, Brian and I got to connect with some of his best friends from highschool in town for the holiday- one home from Korea!!!!  Brian, Matt, and Travis!  Loved this extra time together.

 Time with the kids means lots and lots of reading.  
 Bubba discovered Percy Jackson so this was how he was most of the weekend.
 he did play some games though
 The men cut the turkey
 and I got to watch these two cousins and now Kappa sisters connect with an initiation gift ( jealous!!)
 Mara performed a Thankgiving poem after dinner that got her huge cheers!

 and we walked off some of those potatoes!
 Mara showed Anita how to cheer and we had a great time with our family.
 Friday we headed to Iowa City for my family and the fun started all over....TURKEY with Ali and Wood
 Grandma Doris loves her grand daughter
 Lets eat ( we missed you mom and dad!!!)
 The girls did lots of art together
 And early Christmas gifts were opened too
 More games, barbies, and girl time
 and family game night too!!!!
