Happy Thanksgiving!! We have had the best week!! The girls were out of school all week, which was a MUCH needed relief from our schedule. None of us realized how much we needed a break. We enjoyed our week by just being together, hardly leaving the house, getting our home reorganized, clean, and ready for the upcoming weeks. We had a great time decorating for Christmas (which for me is usually a dreaded event, but this year I loved it!! - pictures to come soon). The girls played together so nice all week, just enjoying being home with nothing to rush off to. Thanksgiving day I had so many little helping hands in the kitchen. We talked about how one day we will be cooking together with all THEIR kids helping out too! We have so much to be thankful for.
Emily made a wonderful green bean casserole!
Kirsten was in charge of making the homemade mashed potatoes, and daddy's favorite yeast rolls.
Hannah made a homemade macaroni and cheese all by herself!! Everything was soo yummy!
Three extra helpers plus two dogs in the kitchen - yep definitely time to add in the much -awaited very long kitchen island (meanwhile, the old TV stand is filling in somewhat well).
And a Thanksgiving walk with Dad while mom gets everything ready for the table (and runs out to snap a picture when they return!).
Time to start thinking about Christmas!! :)

Beautiful photos - great memories in the making! Your little Emily has the most expressive eyes! And, both your other girls are growing into beautiful young women. You are so blessed, as am I.
