Again this year we enjoyed Thanksgiving at Uncle Tony and Aunt Linda's Farm. It was definitely cold this year, but we all still had a great time. The men enjoyed some time at the gun range. The women enjoyed to warmth of the barn or the fire. The kids had fun riding the go cart, golf cart, and power wheels. We all filled our bellies with some great turkey and all the fixins. Then we played a great game of Minute to Win It. It was wonderful to relax and laugh together after our stressful fall. Our family endured a lot this year as we faced my scary heart surgery and lost our grandfathers. It was a time to be extra thankful for the bond we have as a family.
