Our Family Life…All Together

Thanksgiving 2012

So before the month is completely over, I guess I should update on our Thanksgiving week.  My brother, sister, and niece came to visit from Pennsylvania for the whole week!

We had a concert with all the kids.  Jacob sang…

While they were here and before the actual craziness of preparing food had to take place, I took Christmas photos for them.  These were a few of my favorites…

And do you see what I see?  Yep, there’s a baby bump.  Chloe is going to be a big sister around the beginning of April to a new little sister!

Chloe is a little excited about it.  She was even thankful for her baby sister in her mommy’s belly at Thanksgiving dinner.

We took a little day trip to the Children’s Museum in Denver.  All the kids had fun starting with the fire truck…

We moved on to the other rooms of the museum.  The bubbles were a hit…

as was the veterinarian’s clinic…

and, of course, the dress up area where the kids could put on tap shoes and dance around with glee!

We had some glorious weather for the entire week.  It was in the 70s for one of the days and so the kids got to play outside for a bit…

They also had plenty of time to just snuggle and be still…

Chloe was excited to help bake with me.  I let her put in the most important ingredient in pumpkin chip muffins…the chocolate chips, of course.

She may or may not have stolen a few in exchange for this picture…

I’m the aunt.  I don’t have to admit to bribing her in any way.  Chloe, I will always have chocolate chips (or any other candy) for you ;-)!

On the actual day of Thanksgiving, I took very few pictures.  A turkey looks like a turkey.  The food looks the same from year to year.  No point in wasting space in my photobox.  So we took pictures of the kids skyping…

and the big kids playing…

and just enjoyed each other’s company.  It was a great visit.  And while I didn’t finish my thankfuls for the month (I know, big slacker), I can say that I am so very thankful that they could visit us again this year.  I am so very thankful they are expanding their little family (and it’s not me ;-)).  I am also so very thankful that we were all able to enjoy thanksgiving together.
