HaPpY ThAnKsGiViNg 2016!


So thankful to have so many of us together this Thanksgiving!
Matt, Caitlin and Elodie were not able to travel to MN
but we will get to see them over Christmas!


Auntie Barbie joined us this year!
We are a bit of a crazy crew to be with!


Had to get a pic of these precious kiddos!
Soon there will be two more treasure in this photo!


Katie is in charge of the sweet potato hot dish!


The children love helping out with the meal and watching Katie!


We do things soooo differently-
 I am a recipe follower and she is chef like and more creative.


Unfortunately our Viking football team lost today ;-(


I'm in charge of getting the home and the kids ready 
along with the green bean casserole and desserts.


The kids loved coloring the table cloth!


Katie did the art projects and the sweet potatoes!


Johnny watched a movie with the kids!
They tried their hardest to get Emily to smile...
but it didn't work.




The kids colored turkey crowns!


I think Ali had help coloring hers ;-)


Joey loved coloring on the table cloth!


 Emily did too!


Our cook!
He made two turkeys this year!


This is EVERYONE'S favorite meal!


And Emily... ate the roll!


Katie brought a
"thankful tree"!


We each wrote on the leaves what we are thankful for!


Billy and Kelly joined us after dinner!


Love the end result of our thankful tree!
This is Jenny's first Thanksgiving with us!
Her one year Forever Family Day anniversary is coming up!


Max came with Kelly and Billy!


We had to watch a few replays of the sweet sixteen 
and elite eight soccer games!
Very soon we will be going to the 
FINAL FOUR!


We love this holiday!
Feeling thankful!

 Hope that you had a joyous Thanksgiving celebration!

It looks like such a lot of fun!

I can't believe how much bigger and more mature Emily looks now.

When are you heading to China?
