Thanksgiving Week Pictures

Someone messed with my camera!

Little buddy played outside while his sisters catnapped in the car. 

The storm really took its toll on some stuff. Good thing these things aren't used. 

I had to laugh that Lucy found cover under the tree to stay out of the snow and rain. 

These babies love their Aunt Becky. 

There is a certain area near Grandpa's chair that the babies aren't allowed to play. These little stinkers still try though!

Saturday night fun for us after nearly 7 years of marriage --- processing deer in the living room while watching football. 

Stretching after Daddy's run. 

We spent a few days up north visiting Bob's grandparents for Thanksgiving. My kids love them. 

Grandma has a drawer in her kitchen full of trinkets for the babies to play with. They had a lot of fun together. 

Love these people of mine!

Grandma Lil, her daughter Sue, and 2 youngest great-granddaughters (at the moment) Ilya and Emelia. 

Black Friday shopping on Thursday night at Walmart in Houghton Lake. Oh, yes, we did!

Love him! I got my Christmas present! Whoo hoo!

Grandma and (some) of her girls!

Snow Power

Baby Ilya is getting bigger (and cuter) every day! She is smiling a lot more. 

This baby LOVES being swaddled. She is fussy if she isn't wrapped tightly enough. 

The dog always watches the kids through the window and they watch her, too. 

Looks like she needed coffee. 

It snowed for the first time this fall. One liked it more than the other. 

Watching the Spartans play Kentucky. The kids kept climbing on laps until they found the perfect one to sleep on. 

Grandpa won. 

Silly buddies holding hands in their car seats. 

I hosted a girls' night/thirty-one party and Emery had to try out the durability of the bag. 

Bellie and Bobby have had hand, foot and mouth disease for over a week now. It's been a long week. (We also lost power at our house Sunday and it's estimated that it'll be back on Friday night at 11pm. Thank God for living close to family!)

Bob got a buck on our land!

Buddy didn't want a hug!

Aunt Beck gave the babies their first bath as a group of three! 

Love these little sisters. 

Emery and Bobby playing with balloons. 

Grandma set up a tent for the babies to play in. 

She had help. 

Aunt Baby Whisperer. 

Nap-time shenanigans. 

Popcorn. (This would be the story from my previous post.)

Relaxing before bedtime. 

Crayola marker lipstick

She fell asleep waiting for lunch. I had just folded laundry and she grabbed the socks and made herself a pillow. 

She's getting bigger every day!

Ilya and her cousin J.J.  He's seven weeks younger and already bigger! (She is 10 weeks and he is 3 weeks in this photo.)

Playing at Granny's house. 

Sweet buddy.
