Our Happy Thanksgiving

November 26, 2011

Each year, we go to my grandparents’ farm in northern Missouri for Thanksgiving. I always look forward to it, and this year I have some pictures from our time. On Thursday, my grandmother made a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner, and we enjoyed talking about the year and catching up a bit. That evening, the weather was beautiful! All the guys went out skeet-shooting and my cousin Anna and I went on a walk.

The Noble men.

Anna and I.

That night, all of us cousins had Nerf gun battles in the basement. It was almost as fun to watch as it was to play! :)


Austin was pretty much the reigning champion. I never beat him even once!

We also played a fun group game of pictionary.

Anna and I got our traditional picture in the big chair together.  :)

On Friday, we picked out our Christmas tree at the farm.

It didn’t take very long to find one. The tree we found is not perfect, but with some ornaments and lights, it will look great!

Wesley and our cousin Andrew.

Austin and Jonathan enjoyed exploring the woods.

Loading up our tree to bring home.

It was a wonderful Thanksgiving. I love going up to the farm and spending time with family!

It is such a blessing!

    Brooke, this is a great post. It is so fun to see all of your photos and your different family traditions. It looks like y’all had a fun and blessed time. I am so happy for you.

    I love and miss you. Have a great and blessed week.

    To God be the Glory,


    Nerf wars and Pictionary look SO fun. I should seriously teach y’all how to play running pictionary someday! :)
