Thanksgiving Get-together in March

Yesterday Peder and Sarah hosted a Thanksgiving Day dinner at their home since their four parents were either out of state or out of the country for the traditional Thanksgiving Day last November. It was really a fun time, complete with a turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and apple pie dinner. When I arrived, there was a Viking's football game being shown on the TV (actually recorded last Thanksgiving Day). Sarah got so "into it" that when her brother offered to run to the grocery store for something, she said, "Aren't the stores closed today?"
Aurelia was the main event of the day. She was so cute. I'm amazed at the sign language she has learned along with words - words and signs such as: dog (pats the side of her leg), bird (puts her fingers to her nose like a beak), please (rubs her tummy), more (taps her little fingers from both hands together), and others. Why didn't we teach our kids sign language? Why don't I know sign language? These new parents are doing a great job with our grandchildren! I'm so proud of them.

Could this child get any cuter??

Sounds like you had a great time. Loved the ambiance with the football game playing. What a good idea to have Thanksgiving at a different time. I like it. Had to laugh at Sarah really getting into it.
