This Thanksgiving, the whole clan on the Hannon side got together in California, and as a new Granny, it was, well, ESPECIALLY AWESOME.
I am not one that is normally drawn to babies, but since she is my grandbaby and my own baby girl is her mother, I guess a whole different set of emotions come into play. I was, once again, (just like when she was first born and we went to Hawaii), very happy to sit still and hold that sweet thing!
Having the whole immediate family together was also great because we all get along.
And there was that one group that deviated from the meticulously planned plan to go rogue wine tasting. They texted the two non-texters to keep us all up to date, and conveniently had their phone off when we tried to find them. Hmmm…..
But you know, other than that, we are the perfect extended family!
We played our traditional games of Ninja
and Scrunchie Face (a Taboo-Charades combo where we write out phrases for the players to guess such as “Turkey coma” or “The cutest grandbaby ever”, or “They went wine tasting?!”). It is girls against the boys and the girls always win. My brother thinks we need to start a classic phrases board. I think we need a winners board to keep track of how many years in a row we women win.
And finally, we got a four generations picture!
Thanksgiving: the perfect time to be thankful for such a fabulous family!
Looking forward to next year already!
