It was a very fine and beautiful day this year for our Thanksgiving celebration. It began quite cold but the sun was out in its full beauty and the kids were thrilled to be with one another.
We spent the night over at my sisters place ( a bit of sleep over for us all) and then started our Thanksgiving Monday together.
We took the kids to a pumpkin wagon and grabbed a few pictures as well as some pumpkins to decorate. After that, the kids found their own fun for the rest of the day.
The kids found it hard to keep their eyes open in the bright morning sun. Matthew is here trying hard to smile.
Declan is attempting to carry his own pumpkin... with little success.
Levi figures his makes a wonderful seat until someone else is willing to move it for him.
Declan is stuck a midst the pumpkins, the perfect opportunity for me to get a picture without him moving.
I made three attempts to get a picture of all the boys in the photo and not a single one was perfect. This is the best one of Ewan from the whole morning... that says something doesn't it? Matthew is trying hard again but the sun is winning. Levi is chilling just to get it over with and Declan is considering how he might escape off the wagon. A puzzle that left him still for a moment to snap a few photos.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing with family, eating wonderful, non traditional thanksgiving dinner and chasing Declan around. He is trouble I tell you. Into absolutely everything.
Thank you Jo and Aidan for such a lovely time. It is always so nice to get together and enjoy food and company with little to no stress. I just hope I didn't get you all sick.
