Happy Early Thanksgiving

Because we knew Nathan's grandmother was very ill, we had our Thanksgiving early in case we might have to leave for her funeral later in the week. Ambir and Santos came up so we could celebrate here. They brought our newest grandchild, Rambo:
Ace loves Rambo and tries so hard to play with him. They play games like tug of war:
He was so affectionate:
I think he liked the fact that he was as big as Shine. Poor Shine didn't know what to think.
Mimi on the other hand let him know right off the bat...go ahead...make my day. I have decided to rename Mimi and christen her with a more appropriate name: The Godfather.
Two of the three beautiful sisters:

Ambir and Santos:
The four of us:
Nathan made the whole dinner, as is our tradition and it was fabulous. It wasn't the full spread that we usually do, but we had all of our favorites and more than enough good food. It was so great to have time together, which is what we really were looking forward to. We had lots of fun playing Apples to Apples and then watched some movies that we picked up at the closest Redbox.

Sadly, Nathan's grandmother passed away today and so did another family member that lives here in Florida. So while we had a great day of celebration, we also felt sadness over the loss of two people we loved. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoys the moments you have with your family members.
