What a crowd!

Looking out a window at the Sunset Terrace at sunset...look closely and you'll see about a hundred people down on the steps!

Thanksgiving sunset was pretty at the Grove Park Inn.

But we came to see the gingerbread houses! Russ, Michelle and their oldest daughter, Audrey!

The whole family enjoying one of the houses...Caroline and Kate now leaning against the fence.

The grand prize winner, which is obviously made entirely of edible things...maybe even some gingerbread too!

Caroline capturing (?) the sunset.  Everybody was doing this, and many adults were enjoying a glass of something warming also.

I stayed up on highest level while the family descended to the next lower patio.  Why? To say they did it, and take yet another picture!
I'm afraid I declined going down the stairs to take their picture, so a stranger did it for them!

And then the girls saw the super duper hot chocolate drinks, and each wanted one, of course!

My three chocolate and whipped cream loving granddaughters!

I love these cuties!

And I'm a very proud grandmamma'.

Today's Quote (if you've looked at all those family photos, you deserve a good quote to walk away with)

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.

  1. What a beautiful family and what a lovely place to spend Thanksgiving!

  2. You have every right to be a proud gramma. What a beautiful way to end the day. Love sunset and great hot chocolate.

  3. It looks like you had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Your granddaughters are beautiful. I love the pic of them with their hot chocolate.


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
