Ever wish that you could enjoy a nice Thanksgiving dinner without all of the hassle? No going bankrupt buying groceries, no long hours of baking, no dishes to wash after the meal. Well, we did! We had a wonderful dinner with Grammy Smith on Thanksgiving at the Dex (that's the name of the university cafeteria). The food was delicious - turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, salad, rolls, green beans, and pumpkin and apple pies. And all of it was free! The only problem was that we were the only people on campus that came to the dinner! On one hand we felt really bad that the Dex was open and staffed just for us, but we were also glad that we showed up so they didn't fix all that food for nothing. Anyways, we had a wonderful dinner, and then we went home and had a Christmas carol sing-a-long. It was a great evening!

Best Friends

This is Addie and her best friend, Jordan, who lives in the dorm next to us. We often eat dinner at the Dex with Jordan and her parents. They are some of our best friends. We have known them since before the girls were born, and so it has been a lot of fun to watch as Addie and Jordan grow up together. Addie affectionately calls her "Ba-ba." Unfortunately, Jordan and Addie love the same kind of blankie. There have been numerous tears shed over stolen blankies, but hey... these are girls, so tears come with the territory!
