Thanksgiving 2009

This is the first year in my entire life (that I can remember...and maybe EVER), that we went to ONE place for Thanksgiving. With Charlie and Liv being so young, it was just impossible to do it all happily. So we decided to spend the holiday with Eli's family, as his mother Debbie is in town. We had a wonderful day! We did miss all of the family we couldn't see that day, but what a blessing to have Debbie with us for the holiday.

In the morning we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in the morning, but missed Santa because the twins were in major need of some lunch. Then they took their afternoon nap and we headed over to Aunt Duck's for the feast. Before we could dig in, Charlie and Liv got all suited up.

The food was delicious and Liv and Charlie gobbled it up. Charlie was even cleaned his plate! Everyone was amazed, but Eli and I just smiled knowingly. That kid can really pack it away.

The food was great, but the visiting was better. Aunts, Uncles, cousins, etc. had so much fun with the kids. Aunt Duck even gave them each a little musical toy that just fascinated them.

Cousin Alex, Daddy, Uncle Bubby (Eric)

Charlie and Aunt Holly

Liv and Aunt Froggy (Jette)

Charlie and Aunt Mary
( you know you have one too. Everyone has an Aunt Mary!)

Liv jammin to some classical tunes!

And to cap off the day...there is ALWAYS time for a photo shoot with MooMoo!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Cute! Love Liv's pigtails, and love the bibs!

Debbie, love your haircut!

Also, you must have a blog stalker from here in Fort Wayne! I just happened to look at your live feed and noticed a ridiculous amount of hits from here! Rest assured (or not) that they're not all me!

I LOVE THE PICTURES! Looks like so much fun - I still can't get over how big the babies are. And, man, they're chubby! DELISH! I want to eat me some cheeks!
ab, were you in ONE picture?

Mommy Tips said...

never in a picture Em. Never. As the photographer, it is my curse. :)

Emmy Slusser said...

I am VERY familiar with that curse, thus the question. I will have a chat with my little brotherino. :)

Oh, how I wish I could have seen your family over the holiday. I tried my darnedest.

I love you all.

I also love the following things:

That Charlie and Olivia will call Eric "Uncle Bubby". How adorable.

Debbie's haircut. Debbie - you look amazing!

Hugs and kisses all around. (And extra just for you Abigail - love you!)

I can't believe I am just NOW seeing this. Abby, you do such an amazing job of documenting everything. I'm going to suggest to Eli that at every family function, he take the camera for several shots and get you with the babies and family and friends because the kids and frankly, you and Eli are going to treasure those photos just as much as the photos of the kids. Thanks for all that you do, honey. You're the best.
