Thanksgiving 2012: Show and Tell Monday

Thankful.  Blessed.  Loved.  Abundance.  Family.  Food.  These are the first few words that come to mind when I think about Thanksgiving.  There is so much to be thankful for this year and all the time!  We had a great time visiting with family last week.  Thankfully, Brad was able to take the whole week off work - such fun! We had some good, quality family time (including a trip to the zoo) and lots of relaxing.  We accomplished a few items off our to do list, but not as many as we would have liked to.  Oh well - family time took it should :)

On Thanksgiving Day, we went to my aunt and uncle's house for some visiting and lunch.  I absolutely love this picture of the kiddos that I got!
 And here they are...I love that Katie loves Jack so much.  And he absolutely adores her!
 Katie asked for a picture of just her...yes ma'am!  That can be arranged! :)
 Baby Jack laying in the leaves on his first Turkey Day!
 After a very quick photo shoot, we headed out!  I did some cooking - Paula Dean's Corn Casserole, Strawberry Brownies, and Chocolate Chip Reese's Brownies...delicious!

It was a beautiful day, so we spent some time outside (I'm glad Katie could run off some of her energy!).  Here she is coloring with Cee Cee and Meme.  Well, it is more likely that she was showing them where to color.  She could very well be a CEO one day...she knows how to delegate!
 How sweet is this!
 And a family shot!  No...Brad and I did not plan on matching.  But it is funny that he and I match with our blue and the kids match with their turkeys!
 We forgot Katie's Indian set she made at school, so she had fun modeling it when we got home.  Hate that the picture turned out blurry.  I do believe that is because a certain someone would not be still.  Hm...wonder who that could be?!
 On Friday, we did Thanksgiving with Brad's family!  The kids were not quite as cooperative for pictures, so this is the best we got.
 Here is Miss Priss striking a pose and not wanting to look at me and smile.  Oh dear.
The food was delicious and the company was even better.  I think we can all say that we had a great holiday, ate way too much, and wished we had more pairs of stretchy pants :)  I momentarily thought about wearing maternity pants to be more comfortable (no, I didn't actually do it).  Thank goodness I ran both days (before eating, of course)!

I hope each and every one of you had a great holiday!  Ours was definitely a success!
