Thanksgiving 2012

Thanksgiving was so amazing this year. It was a bit of madness, with all the little hooligans running around, but I suppose it’s only going to get worse from here. Our family has grown quite a bit in the past few years, so I don’t think I’m used to holidays being SO crazy!

I decided we should do a “Thankful Tree” after seeing it in a magazine a few months ago. All in all, it was a good time! Almost everyone wrote something they were thankful for, and we all sat outside on the porch to read them. Though I am a bit upset it’s not colder, it was pretty wonderful sitting outside. We got to enjoy the lights on the house, and eachother’s company. 

The food was delicious, and the table was beautifully set. My only wish is that it could have lasted longer, and that my sista Jill and her family were there to share it with us. Oh, and that I could transport my Teran family anytime I wanted… because we were genuinely missing them as well. Why can’t everyone just live down the street? Not fair.

I think that Aurora was loving all the cousins, too. She and Rylee became pretty good buds this week. (Or rather, Aurora really wanted to hang out with Rylee, but since Rylee is walking and like, totally 9 months older, Aurora was always a bit behind.)

Oh, I love the holidays!
