Thanksgiving 2012

We opted to leave for Pensacola at 5:00 am on Thanksgiving morning. The kids slept for 4 of the 5 hours we were on the road which made for a happy mom and dad in spite of the lack of sleep.

Trudy was happy to see Amelia again and liked her brothers a lot better than I expected considering she didn't remember any of them from her first Thanksgiving.

What's not to like when they are full of fun?

Arthur was happy to provide piggyback rides and horsey rides

And Gus didn't lack for a shoulder to sleep on all day.

Who knew gathering acorns could be so much fun?

Nathan wants a baby brother or sister. I tried explaining to him that he IS the baby, but that didn't go over too well with a big 4 year old. ;)

Of course Aunt Julie got plenty of baby time in over the weekend too.

We enjoyed a crazy-amazing Thanksgiving dinner complete with the best cheesecake I have ever put in my mouth. True story. Maybe I can wrangle the recipe out of Mom.
We're so thankful for our family and for safe travels this holiday!
