Happy Turkey Day 2010

We always get excited when all the kids are here on any given day...between four family's schedules and three cities, it's hard to get everyone together often, so we look forward to holidays and this one was no exception!  Above are three of our grandchildren: Cooper,  his cousin Emma and sister Bailey.
 Bryden, below, was here earlier to help get ready....he is a social little guy and really had fun watching all the activity!
 Chelsea helped me cook the day before...she is a marvelous cook and you can see we had lots to do before we were ready.
 The first to arrive were Mike, Lori, Bailey and Emma...
 -then the rest arrived.  Again, it's rare to get a picture of all my children with theirs...even here Emma is taking a nap.  Mike holding his daughter Bailey, Tim holding Chelsea's son Bryden and Chelsea holding Tim's son Cooper.
 Miss Emma woke up from her nap!!
 One of the most fun things for all ages was the I-pad!
 Bailey takes gymnastics...here balancing on her father's foot!
~and here playing with Scoobie.
 Lori gave Bailey's bow to Emma who is just getting enough hair to keep it there!

 Trying once more to get a pic of all the kids, Bryden had to go home....Bailey NOT happy to have her picture taken, but look at the sweet exchange between Cooper and Emma!!
 BUT those daddies can make anyone laugh!!!  Thanks, guys for coming home....we're thankful for every moment with you!!!
