Thanksgiving Recap!

We started the day with a group speakerphone call to our family in Southern California. I know it made my dad happy to be able to tell his family "I love you."

The rest of the day was about family, family, family. We just spent time together, laughed, ate good food, and watched the miracle of little kids. Connor is in this AMAZINGLY fun stage where he is just exploring and learning. He can count to five and sing the Itsy Bitsy Spider song (complete with the words "raining" and "theisseessee" - what? those words aren't in your rendition? you're missing out!) and it's just so much fun to see him learn new things. So basically we spent the day off and on sharing stories and playing with kids.

Our little chief...
 And one of our little pilgrims...
 And the other pilgrim!
 Connor made those hats in his preschool. He was so proud of them. He kept telling the babies to "put hat on."
Rebecca and the little pilgrims:
 Remember how I told you I was going to confuse you with those shirts. Yep, here they are again on Thanksgiving Day in their matching Stuffed Turkey shirts! I did end up adding "Stuffed" to them and I think they came out cute!
 Daddy and his Boys:
 Uncle Colin and Bella:
 Aunt Katie and Aiden:
 The first Thanksgiving in my parents' new home:
Mr. Howard, Connor, and Nana:
 My little sister and little brother
Katie and Colin
 My dad intentionally took this photo upside down. In fact, it didn't come out right, so he re-took it purposely upside down. What can I say? He's odd.
 This photo will make more sense when you see the one below. My dad always has to be silly.
 My mom wanted a photo with her grandson and that's what prompted my dad to ask me to take the photo above. =)
 Mr. Howard, Me, and Aiden. I think Izzy slept through Thanksgiving Dinner.
We ended the day (while we all had full bellies and had been cooking and/or running after babies) with the annual Kirkpatrick Christmas Card Photo (it's become a tradition for the last 4 or 5 years). I have ridiculously adorable photos that I will share with you from that day soon (as a little teaser...we dressed Aiden and Isabella up as Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus. No I'm really being serious!).

The older I get (and dare I say, more mature), the more I realize how important family is. This Thanksgiving I am beyond THANKFUL for my family and especially for small and large miracles.

Ditto. We loved the call too. :-) Especially a certain someone.
