We spent the week of Thanksgiving in Illinois with Andrew’s family.
His parent’s picked us up at the airport in Chicago and after a quick trip into the city we headed north for Wisconsin.
We met up with his sister Rebecca and her fiancé Brad for a short family weekend in Kohler.
When we got back to Illinois, we spent some time with Andrew’s grandparents. I learned how to knit from Grandma Pierson—I’ve got a long way to go before I start knitting sweaters or scarves (see product below), but I was excited to learn. I had learned to crochet as a kid from my grandma and knitting was something I was interested in learning.[I was supposed to be making a square washcloth, but it turned out looking like a pair of bloomers!]
Early on Thanksgiving morning I had gone with Andrew’s mom to a Thanksgiving Day boot camp. I had no idea how sore I would be. I was unbelievably sore for the next three days (3 days!!). The below photos are from day 1, post-camp. It wasn’t pretty. I could barely walk down the stairs without my quads trying to give way. It was pathetic!
We had such a great Thanksgiving and Pre-Christmas celebration. Thanks so much for everything, Jeff and Deanne!
