Thursday was a very full day, with lots of people to see and lots of food to eat - the perfect kind of day.
|Happy 1st Thanksgiving!|
|Eating with Aunt Sandy|
|Giggling with Aunt Vicki|
|Playing with Aunt Bonnie|
|Some of the girls (Annie, Kim, Kate & I)|
|So many great toys!|
|Playing with Josh |
(... it was on this trip that I realized how desperately Kate needed a haircut)
|Thanksgiving day tradition... looking through the sale ads|
|Also a tradition... falling asleep in front of the TV (Kate didn't quite get this part)|
|Padrick and Sydney saying goodnight|
Friday meant early morning shopping for us 4 sisters! Which combines my 3 best friends, little sleep, lots of caffeine, tons of laughing, big crowds, great deals... equals the best fun ever. A huge thank you to the awesome dads who stayed home with our kiddos!!
(I have no pictures of our sister shopping time - which is probably for the best. It gets a little crazy at times...)
|Annie (Aunt Christi) cuddling a sick baby girl|
|More cuddles from Grandma|
|And cuddly eating with PaPa|
On Saturday, we celebrated "Christmas" since most this side of the family wouldn't be together for it. Here's our annual Christmas picture... look at alllll these kids :) luv 'em to pieces
And of course, it was time for gifts! It was Kate's first experience unwrapping gifts... that coupled with not feeling good, meant she just kinda sat there :) but it was super fun for the rest of us
Sunday, we went to our home church... which is always so great to be able to see old friends. Then it was a quick lunch at Five Guys before we got on the road again.
|Paul... who is always able to get Kate grinning|
|Cindi and I with our little ones - Josh & Kate (neither of whom are looking) :)|
Sooo much fun! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with those you love too!
