This year for Thanksgiving my mom, dad and Jeff came to Kansas! It was such a blast. It was a quick trip but am so glad that we actually had visitors here. We probably won't be having to many of those the next 3 years. We didn't do a whole lot while they were here. On Thanksgiving we just cooked and ate all day. That night we went to go see Tangled. It was really cute movie. Kate loved it. It was the first movie she has sat all the way through. Phil's Grandpa unfortunately passed away on the Monday before Thanksgiving. The funeral was held in Rockford, IL where we was from. Because it was thanksgiving weekend plane tickets were super expensive and Phil didn't want to drive to Chicago with Kate by himself (I unfortunately had to work or else I would have gone.) So they decided to take the train! They even had their own Harry Potter room. Kate absolutely loved riding the train. She still talks about it. They even had a train stop in Naperville. How is it that Kate and Phil got to go back there before me? They had to be at the train at 5am the day after Thanksgiving. I dropped them off and then went black friday shopping with my family. We went to walmart, target, kohls, gap, and jcpenney. That afternoon my parents left and I had to go to work from 1-11:30. It was a super long day. But Phil and Kate made it safely to Chicago and had a beautiful funeral service for his Grandpa. He will be missed but is definitely in a better place.
Here are a few pics from the train.
