A Peterson Family Thanksgiving

This is our first Thanksgiving without Melissa, Tom, and Mae. The feeling that someone was missing was worse than ever! While we're all grateful and happy that they have this opportunity to live there and have Tom go to school, we sure miss them. So here is my mini documentary I made for them so they can imagine what it would have been like to be here :)


We open scene one with a view of the thanksgiving munchies.


I ate most of the cheeseball.

Some people weren't to happy about it!

Poor Curtis was really sick, so we will excuse him from further pictures.
