Thanksgiving Weekend

Happy Thanksgiving (a few days late . . .)!!! We had such a great week last week. The family fun started on Tuesday night when my brother and his family came down. On Wednesday, we went 4-wheeling and had a great time . . .

We told Emmy to put her hands in her pockets because it was so cold and we forgot her gloves. She was so cute!

This is on Thanksgiving day. My sister and her family came, as well. If you look close, you can see a cute little teeny dog that Emmy is holding. It is my sister's niece's dog. So little and cute! We all ate at my parent's house and had a DeLiCiOuS meal! This was the year my mom was going to teach my sister and I how to cook a turkey . . . we didn't wake up in time to learn :) Guess we'll have to learn next year!
On Saturday we headed up north and got to visit with Jake's dad for a little while. Emmy had a lot of fun playing with her grandpa!
After the visit with grandpa, we headed over to Jake's sister's house where we got to eat our second Thanksgiving meal! Does it get better than that? Jake's mom, sisters and brother and their families were there. I only took a couple of pics, and this is one of them, Emmy and Ellie jumping on the trampoline. Emmy had a lot of fun playing with her cousins all weekend!

We had such a great weekend! It was so great to see family and relax. Jake didn't have to work all weekend, so he just got to be home with us. Can't ask for a better holiday weekend than that!

That's the best part of Holidays- spending so much time together (and the food- can't forget the food)!
