Thanksgivings (a.k.a. a really long post)

The weekend before Thanksgiving my side of the family came down to our house for Thanksgiving. It was a ton of fun although it wasn't nearly long enough. My little Kayleen came down too. I used to babysit her starting when she was just a few months old. I haven't seen her in a few years so it was so fun for her to be here. She's 11 now and the sweetest little girl you'll ever meet. I wish I had gotten a picture of her. I can't believe I didn't. I have been really bad at taking pictures lately. Here are a few.

This is my niece Sierra who is 8 sitting with Tessa. Poor little Tessa was so tired. She didn't get her required 20 hours of sleep you know. :)

Here are two of my sisters, Karen and Amy. They made the cutest Thanksgiving garland and placecards.

This is my oldest brother Michael the vampire. I think this picture is funny. (Those are candy corn by the way)

This picture is my favorite. It makes me laugh so hard. Amy took this one and it made me laugh outloud when she called him "Babylegs Beasley". It looks like his legs are mine and that my legs are his and they look like little bitty legs. I love it so much. Too funny.

Then yesterday we had Thanksgiving with Jason's side of the family. I didn't get any pictures of course. It did make me laugh so hard when my nephew Ashton who is 4 was looking out the window at the backyard pool and was concerned about the leaves on the cover of the pool so he got a "wand" and started doing magic. He was saying Abra Kadabra, Bibity Bobity Boo, get the leaves out of the pool, Bibity Bobity Boo, Abra Kadabra, Hocus Pocus. It cracked me up especially with the cute little way 4 year olds speak.

This is the only picture I could find of him. This was taken a year ago. He was winking in this picture.

Then today my sister-in-law Serena and I went to Wal-mart really early to get a couple of deals. I got something for Jason that he will love. I'm so excited for him to open it on Christmas and then I bought a new camera to replace our poor camera with a broken screen. Now maybe I will take more pictures. We always have Christmas the day after Thanksgiving with Jason's Dad and his wife, his sisters and their families, and his aunt and uncle and their three girls. Jason and I got an Ipod from his Dad. Now we just have to figure out how to put songs on it. Then we played a bunch of games. Here are a few pictures from today.

This is Serena's husband Kyle and their son Ethan, 2, at our house right before we left.

Here is Ethan and Jason's cousin Jenna, 7.

This is a picture of Jason's dad Roger, Dave, Vincent-15 months, Kyle, me, Ethan-2, Liz, Jason's step-mom Christine, Serena, Jason, Ashton-4, Seth-11.

Here is Jason, Jason's Uncle Mark, and his cousins Bethany and Corinne.

All in all it's been a fun and eventful few days. We sure love our family.
