Thanksgiving 2010

Thanksgiving was a little different this year. Because Aaron's football team (the Vance High School Cougars) made it far in the playoffs, we stayed home rather than traveling to the Outer Banks as previously planned. The holiday was celebrated on Wednesday afternoon at Aaron's parent's house. Even though there were 4 1/2 of us eating (four adults and Grant), Aaron's mom didn't hold back with the feast. It was fabulous as usual with all the traditional fixings and fun fellowship we are blessed with whenever we get together.

Fun in the leaves!

Wesley with Grandpa & Grandma. I don't know where Grant is... he's probably chasing Henry.


  1. One of Dad's earliest memories is of following a dog around their yard...might be Grant's as well.

  2. Dorie and I really enjoyed Thanksgiving with you all. We missed you at the Outer Banks. Aaron's team, Vance HS Cougars, advanced in the play-offs to the fourth round, surprising folks by beating undefeated Mallard Creek on a last second field goal. Exciting! But lost the next round to eventual state champion, Butler HS. A great season for Vance!
