Thanksgiving

Fortney Thanksgiving: Cousins Jacob, Naomi and Nathan. Gotta love pictures with kids under 3... they are all looking at something different... but at least they were still! Nathan and Jacob had a big time playing in the yard forever and wrestling... poor Nathan didn't realize his opponent is 15+ lbs bigger!

This is the rocking chair I had as a little girl!

My Dad has it as his mission every holiday to have us all take a picture in this chair to see how everyone has grown... as you can tell it wasn't very successful! Man, Naomi is soooooo emotional these days. She is a little actress these days... balling when you tell her NO and Dancing when she has an audience! Oh the days of Drama are just beginning I fear.

Daddy and his Princess at the Ashley House!

Our little monkey...

I must apologize to my family for the fact that i did not document any of the GREAT meals or fun times together this Thanksgiving. I think i was just on auto-pilot this year... busy trying to make my picky eaters eat something of nutritional value along with watching them enjoy the company of cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents. I realize that i am way too spoiled and have so very much to be thankful for. So, GiGi and NaNa... if you are reading this: Thank you so much for all you did for Thanksgiving and for every meal and visit we share with you. I can't imagine the day I am in charge of such festivities.

I did not capture some of the most fun memories for the kids. Playing at the pond or on Tractors... or pictures with the people that entertained and served us the most. But I AM very grateful for the time i was able to have with our family. I realize some do not have the blessing of a warm place and warm meal at the holidays.
