A Week of Thanks

For Thanksgiving this year, we headed to good ole NC. The kids and I flew alone on Monday...which went well considering we boarded our plane and THEN were delayed for 45+ minutes just sitting on BOTH our flights. Not fun, but our kids actually did pretty good. We all were exhausted when we finally landed in Raleigh, but it was well worth the trip. Paul arrived Tuesday late afternoon for the craziness ;) 

We really had such a great week with Paul's family. We ate, watched football, ate, shopped, played outside, played cards, and ate some more :) I also endured Black Friday at midnight for the first time with my sister-in-law, Ashley. Great memory for sure! The rest of the week was rather uneventful, besides an unexpected trip to the emergency room for our precious 2yr old niece after falling off a stool. The diagnosis was a fractured elbow and she did surprisingly well in a splint and sling. Our kids are a bit older now, so it's fun to see them interact and play together. At one point, Micah and Maddy were playing "Honey" (aka mom and dad) and Jordan and Emma Grace were their children. It was quite comical. We sure missed Tim, Anna, and their kids as they were in Turkey for the week seeing old friends. Unfortunately, we all won't be together for Christmas, so we had an early Christmas :)
Sweet cousins.
Celebrating Lottie's birthday.
Brotherly love.
The whole crazy crew (but, definitely not complete without Tim, Anna, Levi, and Judah)
Hope each of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
