Thanksgiving Weekend

Lenna celebrated her first Thanksgiving this past weekend. We had a lot to be thankful for in our 4 day weekend. We had planned to visit the Crotteau's in Illinois (they live west of Chicago). My Dad didn't have too much going on and Tony's brother and sister in law invited him to come with. The forecast was looking like we were going to have some bad weather so Tony and I decided to take off early on Wednesday to 'outrun' the storm. Well outrun was the word for it. He picked Lenna up at daycare and they picked me up in Minneapolis at my office at 1 p.m. It was starting to come down and it appeared we were out running the storm until we took a break in Tomah, Wisconsin. Then the weather appeared to be getting worse but we drove out of it. Lenna was a great traveler! She and I hung out in the backseat and played 'peak-a-boo' with me and her blanket. She also got to hang out with Sarge her puppy who snuggled with her while she was napping in her car seat.
Lenna also got to meet Tim Jodie's new puppy.  His name is Dozer and he is a bull-mastiff 8 week old puppy.  He was so cute!  Lenna also go along great with Harley, their 10 year old boxer.  She actually went on a "Harley Ride". 

We had a delicious Thanksgiving dinner and had lots of fun. Plenty of food was eaten!
On Friday Lenna got to hang with the 'guys' while Jodie and I shopped.  On Saturday we took Lenna to the outlet mall and got Lenna some new clothes and shoes.
