thanksgiving 2013

this was our thanksgiving, summed up in one photo.
thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays. matt's family knows how to do it big.  it's starts with dinner on wednesday and the excitement runs through brunch on saturday. there's a talent show, card games, cookies, cookies, and more cookies, a very interesting  (not-at-all-evenly-matched) baseball game, swimming, eating, BINGO, more card games and more eating, no naps for mclain and lots of diapers and hugs and kisses for aplin.  i loved watching all the girls patiently wait their turn to hold aplin and mclain played with his cousin's matchbox cars ALL weekend long. i don't even think he knew anything was different about this weekend...other than the matchbox cars and an unlimited amount of aunt jane's famous cookies. 

this is the only picture i took all weekend. aplin went swimming for the very first time!
thanksgiving is a time where i don't take a lot of pictures, because i'm too busy soaking in all the fun. and then of course, when it's over, i regret not taking any pictures. i promise to be better next time...i always say this.

hope y'all had a wonderful thanksgiving! only 358 more days until the next thanksgiving! 
hugs and kisses~m, s, mc, a, b, b, t, m, b, m, bc and m  

also, keith and kayla came to visit and i hate that i didn't get any pictures with them reading to mclain or playing basketball with him, or kayla getting up at 4:30 in the morning and offering to feed aplin. what?! she's the best!  they are going to make the best parents one day (hopefully soon). they love our babies well, and i love them that much more for it!

  1. I was so sad that I forgot to take pictures too! I even had my camera with me! Thanks for letting us join in on the kick off to Thanksgiving. Hopefully we will get to see you guys again when we come up for Christmas!!
