Celebrating Thanksgiving


There were family photos:

There were snapshots of Ella and Zoe:

There were pictures with cousins:

There was laughing with cousins:

There was a visit from Santa ....

and there was time to tell him our wishes .....

Ella was so happy when it was her turn .....

.... so was Zoe ....


..... and we all heard Santa's bells jingle
as he said goodnight:


Our Thanksgiving Feast was so DELICIOUS I didn't even take a photo of the food spread, or of the darling turkey name-settings that Brenna made or the colorful corn settings Ella and Zoe made. We all ate and visited and had a really nice meal : )


After dinner the girls kept busy writing a book (while wearing the new, super-cute ballerina pajamas that Santa gave them) .....

.... then they presented the book and sang a song to the family:

And these two turkeys ......

..... they did not want to leave Grama and Grampa's house after such a fun day, and if they had their way Grama and Grampa would live in our neighborhood and so would their aunties and uncle and their cousins too!!

Good Times : )

I just love seeing kiddos with their cousins...what a special relationship. And it is very cool that Santa himself paid a visit...and gave new pajamas! I'm sure those will be amazing memories for your girls.

Does your family celebrate with Santa on Thanksgiving? ;)

It was a fun time --- and what an extra special part of our day to have Santa visit us. How ever did he know that we celebrated on that day? and I am so glad that everyone was good so everyone received a little gift. Perhaps if "anonymous" showed better behavior, he/she would be visited, too.

Looks wonderful! I have missed your post as well! Thank you so much for the kind words you post on my blog. It means so much! The girls are growing. I loved their sweet faces as they looked up at Santa!
