It's about time right?! Well, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We got to fly to Florida and spend time with my family. We got there a week before Thanksgiving and the kids and I got to stay for over a week after! Robert went on an internship trip to Phoenix or else he would have stayed, too!

The Tuesday before Thanksgiving, we decided to go to Sea World. It was SO much fun!

Our cousins, Kent and his wife Cindy, had us all over for Thanksgiving. They have a place down in the woods that reminded everyone of the old Nine Cabbages ranch. We had a blast! The weather was perfect and the kids loved being outside. There was TONS of food and lots of family. It was a great day! Here's a picture of the whole gang, back together again!

We had a BLAST! We can't wait to see our family again, soon! Hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving!

Our Kiddie Kandids Pictures

While we were in Florida, I thought we should take advantage of being so close to a Kiddie Kandids and get Spencer and Madelyn's pictures taken. It was a CRAZY morning! I couldn't have done it without the help of my wonderful mother. She's GREAT! It was a miracle that we got one good picture of the two of them together. Spencer wanted nothing to do with his sister. In one of the poses the photographer tried, both the kids were supposed to sit on a bench together. They were supposed to straddle it like a horse. Well, Spencer was behind Madelyn and he kept scooting more and more forward, trying to push Madelyn off. It was pretty stressful, but well worth it! We love their pictures! They're growing up SO fast!
Oh! Check out Madelyn's shoes...they're leopard print ballet flats!!! Aren't those great?!
