Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving went really well this year! We really like having a super mellow, small affair when it comes to Thanksgiving.

The baby took a two hour nap which was just enough time for me to put together the items I didn’t buy pre-made and to heat up the items I did buy pre-made! He woke up just after I’d put all the food on the table! I breastfed him while Allan loaded everyone’s plates up. Then we all ate! After dinner we each got a project life card to write what we’re thankful for on and those went into our family scrapbook album. I then gave the kids another one to write (and color!) on again for Thanksgiving for their individual albums. Then we all went outside and hung out for a while in the amazing weather! It was perfect!  photo 025ecropresized_zpsd0348eab.jpg photo 031eresized_zps21ebc984.jpg photo 033eresized_zps46bc8fd7.jpg

It was cute when Allan went to put food on all the kids’ plates. He said he was the waiter and he got a pen and paper and took their orders. I wish I’d video’d it or something because it was adorable! The kids loved it!  photo 064eresized_zps6875257e.jpg photo 066eresized_zpsfe3a119c.jpg

Though he didn’t eat any of it I wanted a picture of the baby by all the food. lol  photo 073eresized_zps3425d924.jpg

I annoyed the crap out of the family by asking for five minutes to take some group pictures. I desperately wanted to set up the tripod and get one of all of us but I knew they’d all hate me forever so I skipped that! ha  photo 087e2resized_zps0ceaadfe.jpg photo 096eresized_zpsf17da7ea.jpg photo 106eresized_zps1f359167.jpg photo 108eresized_zpsc6a4561b.jpg

I snapped a picture of each of the older girls. Payson and Ember were off playing hide and seek.  photo 130eresized_zps7e626fd7.jpg photo 133eresized_zpsea3a3777.jpg

I’m so thankful for my family. And most especially thankful for the amazing man I married!!  photo 137eresized2_zps0e606fa2.jpg
