Thanksgiving weekend

It was our year to be with Aaron's family for Thanksgiving and it was a blast! All 6 of Aaron's siblings and their families were in town and we ate and talked and played and just enjoyed spending time together. It was wonderful! I'm so thankful to have a family-in-law that I love so much! One of the highlights of the weekend for me was watching Emery play with her cousins. She LOVES other kids and just played all day with her older cousins and loved it!

It just dawned on me that Jacob and Emery both have smiles that just transform their faces into something unbelieveably adorable. I always notice this about my son, but it was so fun to see so many pics of smiling Em. Wish we could get another picture of them together soon! The family pic of you guys is super, so I am excited to see more! :)

What cute pictures! K, now you should tell me how you lost your mommy pooch so quickly. I'm obviously not concerned about that now, but just for future reference. You're amazing! And lovely :o)
