We enjoyed a wonderful first Thanksgiving with Katelynn. We left Wednesday night after work to convoy with the Abitz's to Ashland. Katelynn was a great traveler, sleeping most of the way. The three of us stayed at the AmericInn, which is on the lake and had an indoor waterpark.

Thanksgiving morning it was snowing! Oh, how I wish we would have been dressed to go outside so we could have taken some pictures, but instead, we were dressed to play in the pool. Katelynn still loves the water. We weren't sure, since it had been almost 4 months since we had taken her swimming. We had a great time in the pool.

This year, Thanksgiving was the McClain holiday to get-together. We were blessed to have the entire family together.

In addition to celebrating Thanksgiving, we also celebrated Christmas while we were all together. Katelynn seemed to enjoy opening presents, but she really liked playing with her new toys. Thank you to Uncle Wes and Bill for the Princess Hideaway. As you can see, Katelynn likes it almost as much as her mommy and daddy! Thank you to Aunt Teresa, Uncle Gary, Will & Ben for the pony. Katelynn has had a lot of fun riding it already. She's had some not so graceful landings, too, but has kept a positive attitude!
