Pictures for Thanksgiving Week

We have had an amazing week! So many memories were built, and we relished spending time with extended family.

These pictures offer merely a glimpse of our fun, but I wanted to share them with you!


We started making a trail mix to snack on during our road trip. Sydney approved of the garlic pretzels we made! 


A quick craft was needed, and so we made these turkeys. Sydney's turned out cute!


Jeffrey has really been getting good with making things from K'Nex without directions. Here is a pickup truck.


We picked Bryan up from work at 4 and left town. Because we were traveling in the dark, we bought some glow necklaces and bracelets at the Dollar Tree. $3 well spent for all the enjoyment and peace in the car these brought!

I don't remember which child this is, but it's the neckace (down low) and the bracelet unsnapped around the neck as well. 


Happy Thanksgiving! We had a lovely day with my Aunt and Uncle in Mt. Vernon. My sisters, brother-in-law, parents and cousins were all able to join us, and it was a full, fun feast. 

My Aunt has a gorgeous backyard, and the kids enjoyed running around in it. Many thanks to my mom for snapping this picture of the kids and I. 


What a relaxing day! We didn't go shopping, and the only thing on the agenda was watching my little sister in "A Christmas Story: a Musical" up in Lynden that evening. (It was very well done, and if you are in the area, I recommend going to see it next weekend!)

We took time to veg, play with magnet boards, color and visit. Here are Bryan and five of the kids. Simon was too busy enjoying Aunt Gerri's carpeted stairs to pose for a picture! He seriously went up and down them fifty times a day or more! (He slept well!)


Wow! The zoo, Sydney's third birthday, a lovely evening with my amazing sister and brother-in-law playing a game and relaxing. It was definitely a full day! 

The only downside? It was absolutely FREEZING in Seattle today. The wind was blowing and that made the snow that had fallen Friday come flying off trees  onto us. Brr!

Thankfully we were able to spend a lot of time in the Zoomazium and warm up. Also thankfully, Mindy and Drew (my older sister and brother-in-law) volunteered to take Jayme to the raptor demonstration so the rest of us didn't have to freeze! (Thanks again guys!)

Here are my middle kids on the elephant statue in the play area. Thanks Bryan for taking the picture. 

Hope you had a wonderful week as well!
