Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!

Soooooo thankful to all be together......FINALLY.

Our Li'l B was terrified of our dog at first, look what 3 weeks home can do.



And Li'l B slept in our room the first couple of weeks, but the past week the nights have looked something like this. Awwww.



This year, Thanksgiving was shared with Farmboy's side of the family. Thanks to all the contributors, but especially Heidi and Chris, the food was fabulous and we all probably added a little thickness around the middle.....you know, just in time for the holidays.

The boys watching our Lions get crushed. Go Lions ?!?



Part of the family getting ready for the big dinner.....and snacking on the pre-dinner appetizers that make you full even before dinner starts. Why do we do that?



Heidi had some 3 year old crafts that the 14 yr old and 12 yr old enjoyed playing with. Wow, Claire, nice coloring. Maybe your mom will put that one on the fridge???



Another tradition -- cut down the tree. Li'l B was probably wondering why in the world we were doing this, and why in the world is it SO cold. Oh, dear, it just gets COLDER.



The family.....the trick to a decent shot "spur of the moment" style-- do a black and white shot, that way you can't tell how awfully we clash.

I love, love, love your new picture. Everyone looks good in it... how did you do that? And the twins appear to have grown by leaps and bounds. Lucky for you that Lil B likes the dog now. We're still working on that one. Happy Thanksgiving!

It's the cozy bed with the sweet sleeping girls that gets me every single time!!! Thank you for the update, this reminds me to keep the faith for my own girls in Ethiopia. Why is money the one thing that makes me forget my faith so quickly??? I also LOVE the picture of the dog sprawled across the girls in the car. You are a wonderful family!
