We had a fun Thanksgiving celebrating with the Tommerdahls!  We drove up to Fergus Falls on Wednesday evening.  The kids went to bed while we adults had fun playing Settlers of Catan.  On Thursday morning, the guys braved the cold, wind, and snow to go pheasant hunting.  We all met back at Uncle Kevin's house for turkey and football.  Summer had fun playing with Lilly, Jackson, Kopel, Morgan, and Wyatt.

 We went back to Grandma and Grandpa T's house on Thursday evening.  On Friday, the guys went out hunting again and others of us went shopping :-).  We all met back at the house for hangout time in the afternoon.

 On Friday evening, Shannon and her four kids came over to make Lefse, a Tommerdahl tradition. 
First you roll out the dough

Then you put it on the lefse griddle and flip it with the stick

Add butter and sugar

Look at this awesome ball!

Colton enjoyed sitting up all by himself in the tub for the first time

He loved splashing!

 We drove home Sunday morning and made a stop in Woodbury for lunch with Grandma and Grandpa Kirkwood and Uncle Eric and Auntie Kristin.  We are SOOOO blessed to have such wonderful families!!!!
