Thanksgiving!!

What a great holiday to reflect on how many blessings in our lives we can be thankful for. It is so much fun to gather together with family and enjoy each others company. This year we had dinner with Jake's side and it was a blast. I am so mad, I forgot to bring my camera. Thanks to Robyn and Gary for having the whole family over for dinner and games! We enjoyed a GREAT dinner (with seconds and thirds might I add). After dinner the little kids made Turkeys out of apples, toothpicks and candy. They were adorable! Then we enjoyed a game of Bingo. Later that night we stopped by my parents house to see my family and enjoyed some pie. Jake and I truly have so many blessings in our lives. We are so blessed to have wonderful families, friends and each other. Most of all we are so greatful for Walker and the joyfulness he bring to our lives. - i must add a side note - OF COURSE I WENT SHOPPING ON FRIDAY! I hit the mall with my sisters at Midnight!! The best of all - we all stayed at my moms house and at midnight I went up to tell her goodbye and she said "if there is anything good call me - because I already have my clothes on" She moved the covers and she was in her jeans! ha ha! You gotta love some great shoppers! We hit Mervyns at 4am, Walmart 5am, Target 6 am, and Bath and Body Works at 6 am! What a great day!

I was sad I didn't go with you to the midnight sale at the mall. Next year for sure count me in. Your mom is awesome, I love that she slept in her clothes. That is great.
