The thing about Thanksgiving 14 that I loved so much...it was simple. We spent Thanksgiving afternoon dining at Aunt Valerie and Uncle David's house with our usual 20 or so and that gathering went into the evening for a bit. It was a great time to catch up with everyone while the kiddos took turns hanging on necks and jumping around. The biggest surprise for me was how big my second cousin/nephew Flynn has gotten. It had been several weeks since I last saw this little chunk and my how he's grown! He weighs almost as much as Sawyer and he's only like 10 months old!
On Friday, we did our feast with Meme, Papa, Grandma, Lilly, Clayton and Jessica. The food was very good and the family time was lovely. Lilly has grown so much since the summer when we last saw her. She's very interactive and really enjoys her toys. She likes playing with Audrey and will pull her around to different rooms to play. Truly though; all three did really great together.
Family is such a blessing.
|such a sweet boy!!|
|Cousins playing Frozen! I mean, how cute is this?! We loved having Lilly in town!|

|Gym team sleep-over at Savannah's house!|
This picture cracks me up. Audrey had her first sleep-over away from home when Savannah Parker hosted. Charli Kelly was unable to attend so she's not pictured above, but Savannah's little sister (far left) filled in. Audrey and her partner in crime, Karina Perry (they are the team clowns) are sharing Audrey's sleeping bag. I heard those two had to be eventually separated due to the late night hysterics ;)
|Daddy got the hog going (again) and it was like an early Christmas present for our kiddos. They love rides after work.|
|The cutest turkey at his preschool feast. I love this little man more than words.|
|Maclain and Sawyer.|
Sawyer is going to miss this little lady something fierce. He's pretty hard-core for a two year old dude, and Maclain hangs right there with him (and the other boys). In fact, she can often be found ruling the roost and getting things done where they're concerned. These two interact together in a way that I find so funny. Sawyer listens to her very well, and she runs right along with him to find some other mischief to get into. Little rascals...yep, that's these two. I'm praying life's events bring us together even though distance will bring us apart.
