Happy Thanksgiving!

It was a quiet day, we got up early to cook and have fun in the kitchen, remembering Thanksgivings past and all we are grateful for. We reminised about when our boys were born and we had told my parents in Chicago that we could not come. The night before we changed our minds, decided to surprise them and made the 6 1/2 hour trip in the car with 6 month old babies. I will never forget the open mouthed look on my mother's face when she opened the door and we handed her two babies in blue winter stocking caps!! Pure joy!...(miss you mom!!!...)
We both really enjoy the festivities of the holidays but prefer an informal day at home with our flannel shirts on around the family table. Tim, Joni, Cooper and Chelsea were here late morning. Cooper found the toys and played before dinner. His dad helped build a farm...
Then there was dinner and the finale...PUMPKIN PIE!!! mmmmm....
We got out the Disney films and Cooper was entertained!

-while mother earth relaxed...for a short while more....

Funny (to us...) clips of Cooper at dinner...

Cooper's dog Remington and he like to play tag and run in circles around the house, we are laughing out loud watching the energy and wishing we had some!...
By the way....Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I love it when we try to get the kiddos to perform and they want nothing to do with it! Looks like a fun and energetic day. If we all ran around like Cooper we could have more pie! Looks like it was fun and knowing you, I know the food was delish! Happy Thanksgiving. P.S. Tell Chelsea she looks ready for that sweet baby!
