Thanksgiving in the mountains

For the past two years we have spent Thanksgiving in the mountains (at Grandma's timeshare) with my sister's family. The kids look forward to it immensely! Both years it has been quite cold, so even though we are in the beautiful CO mountains (and probably ought to be skiing or something impressive like that!) we spend most of our time at the resort enjoying the hot tub, the pool, the foosball and ping pong tables, and just sitting around playing games and relaxing. We also take along the "fixins" for a simple Thanksgiving meal. I'm not sure how long our new tradition will continue, but thus far it has made for some very fun memories and lots of great "cousin time" for the kids!
