thanksgiving 2012

Our Thanksgiving was super chill and super awesome. Ellie was spoiled all weekend long (it took three days for her after we got home to get used to not having someone hold her all.the.time)! We went hiking (more like walking, but whatever), watched soccer games, B and I snuck out for a few dates, stuffed ourselves with good food, went black friday shopping at noon (no early morning risers here!), and enjoyed the SEVENTY FIVE DEGREE WEATHER. Here’s just a few (of the many) photos we took this weekend. (Wanna see more? Check out my mama’s blog!)

And I couldn’t resist throwing together a quick video of the weekend (check out E smiling, melts my heart!). Plus Erin sang this song every day, all day. Seriously.  :)

    1. I actually used windows live movie maker - nothing professional here! You can download it off the Internet for free! :)

  4. Oh my goodness, that video made me cry!! What a great weekend we had! I loved every part of that movie...her bath time w/ her built in baby-tub (aka Zac), Erin and her randomness (which we all love), Spencer's grouchy faces when really he's the happiest kid ever (just not for the camera), Gracie and her loving Ellie moments, Ellie totally recognizing the picture of the Savior and "talking" and "talking" to Him (priceless!), tying shoes for hikes, and all of the random Thanksgiving-ness of the whole weekend. You summed it up PERFECTLY!!! Thanks so much for being YOU! You and B are such a wonderful example!! xoxoxoxo (see you next weekend!!!!)
