thanksgiving dinner
This year for Thanksgiving it was just the six of us; we had a nice, relaxing day and a wonderful dinner!

dinner fun
Sweet Ben and Little Miss Lexie (carrying on the family tradition of "olive fingers")

After dinner we decorated our Christmas tree.  The kids were excited to put up the ornaments they got at Disney World this year!

ballerina alligator
Lexie found a ballerina alligator ornament and HAD to have it.  Since she's obsessed with both alligators and ballet we figured it was a great representation of her 2011.

all the kids
The kids always get Christmas pj's from Grandma and Grandpa and wear them while we decorate the tree and then throughout the holiday season.  I love getting pictures of them in matching pj's since it doesn't happen often!

After a fun-filled day we enjoyed some pie and then it was off to bed.


  1. i love the pictures of the kids by the tree- so sweet! You are so lucky!

  2. The pic of Lexie with her ornament is priceless. It soooooo fits her this year!
