It's Thanksgiving!

We have made it to Grandma's for Thanksgiving. We arrived on Wednesday and on Thanksgiving morning, the boys were up ready to celebrate with family. Our morning started with the traditional Macy's Thanksgiving parade. When the parade started, Andrew had to call a few of his 'peeps' to make sure they were up and watching.

"Hey dude, get up the parade has started."
Most our our Thanksgiving was spent playing on the neat toys Grandma has built between the first floor and the upstairs. The boys are able to move up and down the stairs without any trouble. We continue to put the gate on the fourth stair to keep any potential tumbles to the lower stairs. Grandma's house is so cool...
A couple pics from Thanksgiving morning for which I gave great thanks!! I have been trying to get some pictures of the boys to use in our Christmas cards and nothing was 'just right.' Then, on Thanksgiving morning, I captured these sweet faces:
Wes' pic was good but I have better ones to use on the Christmas card..
Once the boys were dressed for the day, Daddy and Veronica took them for a walk around Grandma's neighborhood. Veronica took this picture of them on their walk...
With the boys joining us for the meal, we had to add their very own table! Grandma joined them at their table for dinner and I laughed as I heard the boys banging on the table causing Grandma's plate to bounce around. Everyone found this very funny... but Grandma!
Getting a group shot of the boys continues to prove to be a challenge. Elizabeth helped me out by trying to keep the boys still long enough to snap a shot. Thanks Elizabeth!!
We were a pretty big group at Thanksgiving with a total of eight children. Zack and Ryan, the older boys are missing from this picture but this was six of the eight. It looks like Wes would have preferred to be with the older boys than in this picture. (L-R) - Wes, Veronica, Jared, Rebecca, Elizabeth and Andrew....
Very nice time with family on Thanksgiving. We also celebrated the traditional birthdays for my cousin Susan and me. We both informed everyone that we can skip the Birthday cake in the future for some traditional Thanksgiving desserts like Pumpkin pie!! However, Birthday cake is always nice too.

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving with your family!

Take care,
