Thanksgiving Week: Wednesday

It's easy to keep a 6 month old entertained in a hotel long as you have a bumbo and a mirror!

Wednesday morning we met up with some of my best friends at our old church in Indianapolis.  When we lived in New Pal, about once a week I would get together with Emily and Katie and their kids at BRCC.  The kids would play in the play place, and we would catch up and sometimes do a Bible study.  I miss those times so much!!  Today was the first day I would get to meet the two newest kids to our bunch, Henry Jay (Jason & Emily's) and Rigley Benjamin (Josh & Katie's).  Earlier they had joked that their kids' nick names were Hank the Tank and Big Rig...I had commented that I couldn't think of anything we could call Evelyn.  Her Dad chimed in, "Heavy Evie"...he also calls her thunder thighs.  He's no longer allowed to give her nick names! :-)

Henry Jay is the young man we are arranging a marriage with Evelyn.  We adore his parents and know he will be raised in a godly home - what more could we ask for?!

Charlotte and Tucker playing...apparently Charlotte was playing the damsel in distress and Tucker came to the rescue!
Evelyn getting a little frisky with Henry...we'll work on that in the next 20 years or so...

Wednesday evening, we had dinner with our good friends the Peters.  Dan went to school with David and we have made it a tradition to have dinner with them every Wednesday night of Thanksgiving week.  Somehow we did not get any pictures of them or their family...I'm so bummed!  Dave & Jenni, we'll have to do it again next year! :-)

After dinner, we headed over to Hamilton Southeastern HS to watch Dan's brother Mike coach the Fishers Lady Tigers basketball team.  We always look forward to watching him coach!  Evelyn wasn't real sure of it all to begin with, but she warmed up to it!  She also got to meet "Grammy Joyce" and "Aunt Candice" (her Aunt Kendra's mom and sister).
Really not sure what all of this is about...there's a lot of people yelling, and my Uncle Mike has a vein sticking out of his neck!
She had this look on her face for about the first 10 minutes we were there.
