Thanksgiving Recap

I will say that I warned you there would be lots of pictures.  We had a wonderful, relaxing Thanksgiving weekend.  I think I will just do a weekend/week recap in pictures.

What a difference a few months makes at the lake. 

Can you believe this is a good hair day for Sara Wells?  She sleeps on her knees and forehead and rubs her forehead back and forth while she sleeps, making lots and lots of knots!  This is why a bow is a necessity!
 Luxuries of vacation, Hot Chocolate every morning.
 Marshmallow counting is an exact art
 And Sprite everyday...
 Yes, I did take my sewing machine with me and Ella was my big helper, getting all the pins in the right place.  Since we were going to be there for several days, I thought I would take advantage of my time.
 Reading with Papa
 Lots and Lots of chase!
 Off for a Gruffalo hunt (and trash run).  The Gruffalo is one of Ella and Miller's favorite books!
 chasing him through the woods...
 Even Sara Wells was in on the hunt.
 Don't worry, we got the Gruffalo with our laser (Buzz Lightyear style).
 Thanksgiving Preparations
 Sara Wells was right there helping out with all of the cooking.
 Friday afternoon we went to the Alabama Auburn game.  Very cold!  The first half was awesome!
