Thanksgiving weekend in pictures

This past weekend was so much fun. Chad has been working very long days over the past few weeks, so it was really nice to have him home for 4 whole days!

I'm not going to write too much ... while it was a fun weekend, it was also a very tiring one with some very long nights. Yeah, you can keep praying that I will get more rest. It ain't happening lately.

I took the kids to the mall to see Santa on Wednesday. We had an absolutely wonderful time together! I almost couldn't believe how good everyone was. I took this picture to show Audrey's pretty hair - some lady at a kiosk offered to curl it ... and we said yes!

Audrey, my blue collar gal, "fixing" stuff around the house. Daddy said she should drink gatorade like he does when he is doing field work :)

Chloe hanging out with her Uncle Andy on Thanksgiving

Our Thanksgiving tree completed! Although are we ever done giving thanks?

We started decorating for Christmas. Boy, does Carter love this musical snow globe.
Boy, do I NOT love this musical snow globe. Thanks Mom & Dad ...

Audrey was totally into decorating the tree this year. A girl after my own heart!
Carter's comment: "Ooh, such a wonderful tree!" Now really, where is he getting all this vocabulary??

Audrey with her favorite princess ornament.

My girls in their Christmas jammies. Although Audrey has been wearing hers since September ...

Here is one way Chloe differs from her siblings ... she will actually do "tummy time."

Daddy & Audrey had some fun together this weekend -- they even went bowling, just the two of them!

Hope you had a blessed time with family & friends over the holiday weekend. Don't we have so much to be grateful for?

Now, bring on the Christmas fun!

Love the pictures! It's funny...I woke up on Thanksgiving and already was ready to put all the fall decos away and get out all the Christmas stuff. Mark is making us all wait until Saturday to get our tree, but we're all whining about it. :) I'm so excited about all the Christmas fun...snow globes and all.
