Thanksgiving re-cap

Love my mom's house and yard this time of year.  

Such a beautiful neighborhood.  

The kids were lots of help with the leaves.  Such a novelty for them.  Palm trees tend to stay in tact in our neck of the woods.  :)

My mom breaking the bread for stuffing in her pj's on the phone.  Comfy multi tasking at its best.  

This table was taken over by the kids for coloring and crafts.  

Family bonding time.  We always end up chatting in the backyard while the kids play.  

They were outside all day long.  

Except for when they were inside on the computer.  Kole's latest obsession - ABC Train on YouTube.  If you have a toddler, google it and enjoy four minutes of peace.  

You're welcome.  :)

Enjoying time with Kenny's fam.  This pic was taken while everyone was talking to his little brother on the computer who is serving in the military out of the country right now.  He was missed.   

Time for an Oreo turkey craft!  

These little suckers are harder to make than you'd think!      
Not Pinterest worthy, but El's turned out better than mine did.  
Fun to make and even more fun to eat.   

My girls with Kenny's sweet grandma.  Love this picture. 

My nephew in the leaves.  Also love this picture.  

And I especially love these pictures:

A great game of chase never gets old.  At least for a certain two year old.  I have to admit - it was nice sitting this round out for a change.  :)

Cole's feet when he is watching ABC Train are just the cutest thing! Glad you had a great time with both sides of the family!

Such sweet pictures, I still can't get over how tall Ellie is. They grow so quick. Looks like you had a great time with your family.

Hope you are all feeling better.

Have a good week Erin.

Boy does Ellie look just like Kenny and his side of the family! Love it that you shared some pics of Kenny with his family and that picture of his grandma with your kids is so sweet, grandma's are so special and they have so much love and life experience to share with the young ones. Thanks for sharing and hope you are feeling better!

I would say that is one of the best oreo turkeys I have seen! We made them last year & those suckers are hard to put together!!

what a lovely holiday - I can feel the family togetherness and cozy-ness through your post. Hard to believe you guys don't have leaves on the ground - crazy Californians ;)

Great pictures! You should make one of those shutterfly photo books for each year with all your beautiful pictures. I have ordered them before & they come out so nice :)

iraven 12161LOVE LOVE being in St. George at Thanksgiving! We couldn't have asked for better weather while we were there too! Bummer that we didn't try to do a little get together with Becky while we were all there! I'm sure you understand how crazy it gets with all the family and friends to see down there! Glad you had a fun trip.
