Thanksgiving Memories

Over Thanksgiving we were able to take a short trip to Indiana to visit with Josh's family - what a time! Six adults and six kids (all under the age of 4), sleeping in one house, oh, and let's not forget the dog! It was so great to see Nana and Pa-pa and anuts and uncles and lots of cousins that we never get to see! On turkey day we had 9 kids under the age of 4 in the house to eat - the pictures will help capture some of the fun times. Because the weather was so nice, we took some of the older ones for a walk in the afternoon to get them out of the house. I'm so thankful for a great extended family that cherishes traditions and family time just like I was used to growing up!

esther's new trick

I blogged a while ago that I wasn't looking forward to another early walker, but that's what I got. Everytime she's on her feet (which is often) she walks at least 5 to 10 steps. For those of you who may not be impressed, she's only 10 months old as of Oct. 27th! I give her a week before she's walking all the time. We were spending some time in Josh's office tonight, while the older ones are in class, and I thought I'd try to catch her in the act - it doesn't show her full abilities - but kids never do what you want them to, do they? However, it does catch, PERFECTLY, the face she makes when she sees the camera - it's towards the end - you'll love it! This one's for you Uncle J!!
