The weekend before Thanksgiving we headed back to Glidden to introduce Nixon to my Grandma Wenck, see my parents, and attend my Grandpa and Grandma Hunts Thanksgiving dinner before they headed to Texas for the winter. It was a quick trip back but so glad my grandparents were able to meet their great grandson and that we were able to see family.
Great Grandma Wenck
Great Grandma Hunt minus my grandpa as I didn't get a photo of both of them together.
The night before Thanksgiving we took the kids to Disney on Ice which they loved. Tenley was glued to the front of her seat and didn't move or make a sound the whole show. It was a fun outing with the kids we have tried to make an annual thing.
We spent the Thanksgiving holiday with the Heidgerkens as we headed there Thanksgiving morning. We had a great lunch and spent the day relaxing and hanging out with everyone. That night we did send Bernie into town to Walmart for some Black Friday shopping and did the rest online. The following day we spent the morning hanging out before heading back to DSM. On the way back we stopped and did some shopping in Williamsburg at the outlet and then also stopped in Grinnell to see my brother Chance and his family's new house the recently moved into. We had supper with them before making the rest of the trip back home.
That Saturday we had one more fun thing planned for the kids and that was to go to go to Boone for Santa's Express. We of course first had dinner at Hickory Park before we went. The kids dressed up in their pajamas and we hopped on the train for a fun ride, Christmas carols, hot cocoa, cookies and a visit from Santa. It was a fun activity to do with the kids and of course always fun to see Santa.
