Thanksgiving 2012

We had a great Thanksgiving this year and really enjoyed the time we got to spend with all of our family members.  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because you get to spend time with family and the food is out of this world!  At my family's lunch we always take so many pictures at Thanksgiving so I apologize ahead of time for the picture overload!  I think the weather is always so nice and we get together at lunch so its day light outside too.  We joked that we were having our annual picture session and these pictures have taken the place of what used to be a big kickball game when I was little.  We had our share of "funny/silly" pictures though so there were plenty of laughs to be had!  We really have so much to be thankful for and have really been blessed.  I am very thankful for my entire family and I love getting to spend these holidays with them!

Kate really loves the trampoline.  She loves to just sit on it even if someone else is on it bouncing away.  She just laughs when she gets bounced around.  Taylor found it very entertaining to bounce her and was more than happy to do it.  Kate LOVED it and would just flop around laughing every time he would make her go up in the air.  I'm telling you, this child has very little fear!

Tampoline hair!   Sticking straight out on both sides.

Got to have the gangster picture with Eric

Proud Aunt!  I don't know when but these boys have just grown up way too fast!
This years joke was everyone would need to bring a rake...this is the only person who was a taker.

Kate had more fun playing in the leaves than raking...

Thanksgiving night we go to Athens to Nana's house.  We spend the night there and then join the madness out shopping!  Suzy and I have always gone and we didn't stop this year either.  Hubby and I even went out Thursday night since everything was opening so early.  We really never have a certain thing we have to have but its fun to just be out.  Crazy aren't we?!?
Ready for bed at Nana's
Saturday we headed back to Athens for the Georgia/Georgia Tech game.  We had decided we would take Cohen back to this game earlier in the season.  She had been asking to go back so we took her.  She really did great again!  Before we even sat down I got the cotton candy :) It was a little chilly this game which was totally the opposite from the first game but she was bundled up and never complained.  Its always sweet to see a big win too :)  Now we're hoping for a big win this Saturday for our Georgia Bulldawgs in the SEC Championship game!  GOOOOO DAWGS!!!

We finished our weekend by decorating the outside of our house with our Christmas decorations.  The inside has been decorated but we do wait on the outside.  Kate wanted to help with all the lights, but only for a minute before moving on to the next fun thing which was playing with the rocks with Cohen.  I'm so excited about Christmas!  I can't wait to do all the fun things that come along with Christmas and I love doing them with my girls and seeing them get excited.

  1. Looks like you all had a great Thanksgiving. We had hoped to take the girls to the game on Saturday, but it didn't work out. Looks like C had lots of fun though!
