Movies, Thanksgiving and Fun!

Happy Holidays everybody!!  The season is in full swing & I find myself behind on my blogs.  We have been doing well around here.  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family & we have both of our trees up & decorated for Christmas.  Here are some highlights from the last 2 weeks

The day that Twilight Breaking Dawn came out in theaters we had to go see it!  My dad even took a half day off from work so we could go as a family.  Most people know that my mom is not a huge Twilight fan, but she takes one for the team & goes with us every time.  So, we got some nice family time in with my dad & sister at the movies!

Mom and I outside of theater. Doesn't she look thrilled? haha

Ahhh. She is so cute

And of course we had our first snowfall of the season.  It has already melted away (which I LOVE) but I am sure it will be back soon.  So far the season has been very “wheelchair friendly” to us.  I hope that it holds out

And now we are on to Thanksgiving.  This year we changed it up a little bit and went to my Aunt Sam & Uncle Jeff’s house.  My Grandpa Kast (who I write about all of the time) is here in MN this year.  It has been more than a decade since we have had him in MN for the holidays.  It made the day very special!  My mom’s brother John stopped over for dessert with my cousins a little later…but the pictures on my camera did not work.  Here are some highlights!

Such a fun day & so much to be thankful for!  Thank you Sam & Jeff for having us!

And last but not least, Jenna has been gearing up for her Swarm season that begins in January.  She loves dancing with her friends/teammates every Monday at practice.  Here are a couple of Jenna pics from this season’s photo shoot
