This year, Thanksgiving was a little bit different because I actually had to do some cooking. Nothing makes you feel like a “real” grown up like holiday responsibilities! We got together at Papa and Kaye’s house and enjoyed good quality time with the family. It’s rare we are all home at the same time, so Thanksgiving and Christmas are pretty special.
My pretty girl!
The next two pictures make me laugh. We took about ten of these, and almost all were identical except for Tyler and Caroline. Nine out of ten he was looking straight at the camera (like the one below), then on the tenth, we finally get Caroline to put down the chapstick and smile and he decides he’s done. Story of my life!
Later that day, we tried our best to get a shot for the Christmas card. Not sure just yet if it’s worthy… we have a lot to live up to from last year! What do you guys think?
Aside from Turkey Day festivities, we spent a lot of our three days relaxing at the lake. Granna and Pa let Tyler and Caroline take over their golf cart, so about half our time was spent “driving.” They are currently obsessed with being behind the wheel of anything, whether it’s one of our cars or the “big bus” (Granna and Pa also have an RV… they are full of fun!). Mom offered to let us bring the golf cart back to Columbia with us because they loved it THAT much, but I’m afraid I’d never get anything done again because they’d be fighting to play in it ALL.THE.TIME. Besides, we need to save something for Granna to do with them at her house, right? :)
