Thanksgiving Firsts

It was my first Thanksgiving where we went barefoot and our little tootsies didn't freeze. Although I have been able to participate in a few "Warm" Thanksgivings (Temps in the 50's and in Texas often the 60's. This was the first Thanksgiving where we were comfortable in swimwear. . .
...and actually spent time swimming...

And working on our tans. (Yes, I was in my swimsuit too, but someone had to take the pictures.)

It was also the first time I have not eaten Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving Day. Since it is not a holiday in Mexico, we worked on Thursday and celebrated Thanksgiving Dinner on Friday at Bec and Brad Davis' house with their children, McKenzie and Fox, who call us Grandma and Grandpa. Bec and Brad made the turkey, stuffing, Mashed potatoes and Gravy and Hillary & I made Cranberry Salad, Bacon Pecan Carrots, Greenbean Casserole and pumpkin pie. It was a delicious meal.

On Saturday we drove over to Hermosillo and went to the temple with Hillary and Jake.

We came home and enjoyed watching the sunset on the beach....

...and visited with neighbors..
While Jake played with the Camera and got some great pictures of the sunset and Hillary soaking up the very last rays of the day.
We are very thankful for the lives we have been blessed with, for family and friends, and especially for each of you!
I truly hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
May God's Blessings be upon you!

Looks like good warm fun. I love Ruthie's bathing suit! It's so vintage.
