Thanksgiving 2011

I apologize for the delay in updates.  Our family has actually been traveling, taking a road trip to Mississippi to visit Peter's family.  I started this post before we left and deleted roughly half of the pictures twice.  I admitted myself defeated and tried not to feel bad about the horrible neglect of my blog.  :)

That said, we spent Thanksgiving with our friends, the Oldlands, for the second year in a row.  I wanted to share the pictures before uploading the ones from our trip to the South.

Mrs. O, making the gravy.
The kids enjoyed a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.

Our good friend, Evan, joined us for the day's meal and activities.
Sarah Grace with Elijah.

Mrs. O's deviled eggs!  See, Mom, I told you she'd have eggs.  ;)
Me, with my favorite little hip partner. 

Everybody is just about ready.

Millie and Katrina.

The Oldlands have a tradition of taking a picture of the youngest child with the turkey leg.  Elijah didn't want to touch it at all, but he cried when I took it away. 

 So much to be thankful for!

Joyful !!!! I have been neglectful of my blog too and am vowing to do better.

Thank you for your blog, Julie. It is very encouraging to me.

Much love and prayers as you prepare to move and celebrate the birth of our Lord.

Those are wonderful pictures, Julie. Everyone looks so joyful and Elijah, Ha so cute with the turkey drumstick. :-) The Lord bless you all!

I love the photo of you and Peter, you seldom get to have one taken. And the Elijah boy with the turkey leg is precious. I'm really glad you found the time to put these on the blog. It is fun to celebrate!
