Thanksgiving 2008

Thanksgiving would not be complete without the annual Sobotta football game. Some years are larger than others, and this year happened to be one of the smaller years, but we still had a great time playing football with family and friends. This picture is just of the family that was playing - My borthers Dave and Eric, Me, My sister-in-law Jenny, and Joel.

Then we were off to my mom's house for a Thanksgiving lunch. There were quite a few people there. It was great to see everyone, especially relatives that do not live close by.

(One of the Thanksgiving tables...consisted of me and Joel, Eric and Jenny, Dave and Maria, and my Uncle Dave, Aunt Lyndi, Cousins Anna and John, and of course little Maveric)

(Another one of the Thanksgiving tables with my mom and Mike, and Melisa, Scott and Bailey.)

(Eric, Jenny, and Maveric -- I just thought this was such a cute picture of their family)
This is Maveric's first Thanksgiving!!

Then after we ate at my mom's place, we headed over to Joel's parents for a Thanksgiving Dinner. It was a very busy day, but it is nice to be able to spend the holiday with both of our families that live in the area.

(Dinner at Joel's place. Dinner was small this year because many of Joel's brothers and sisters were not able to come to Cheney for the holidays. Joel's sister Jill and her husband Jason and their new addition Gage were able to join us for dinner.
I am not a huge fan of Thanksgiving food in general, but I love this holiday because you get to see so many loved ones, and reflect on all that we have to be thankful for.
I am so grateful that I was able to spend time with family and to have such a wonderful husband.
Life is good!

Then to top off the week, I got to see Krista. She was home from college and stopped by our house to say hello. She is like a little sister to me, and she always makes my day so much better.
Joel and I love her to death.
Happy Thanksgiving!
