Thanksgiving 2009

We have had such a wonderful Thanksgiving. We were able to spend time with both of our families which is always nice. We had Thanksgiving with my family on Wednesday evening.

This is our niece, Joylyn. She was DYING to hold was the sweetest thing. When A was born, she told my sister that A was not Aunt Jill's baby, she was hers and that she was going to take her home with her. HA! So cute.

When my family gets together, we write down what we're each thankful for and we take turns sharing. There are always some tears and lots of laughter during this time! :)

Me and my girl. Her shirt says "Thankful for Mommy" :)

This is the whole gang! Having a large family is the best. :)

My sweet husband let me sleep all night last night, while he took care of A. I woke up this morning feeling very rested and ready for more turkey!

This is our niece, Alexandria - holding her new cousin.

Aunt Sarah taking a turn!

For this I am thankful...

And to end the evening, we went to see A Christmas Carol with some of my family. A got to see her first movie and in 3D!

Okay, so she slept through the entire thing, but how cute is she in her 3D glasses!? ;)

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Love to all,
