Happy Thanksgiving

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family in Indiana!  Kate did awesome on the long road trip and was a trooper while we were there, even though she got sick the last couple days . :(  But with plenty of arms there to cuddle and love on her, she did great.

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!
