Like everyone else I’ve been so busy! Right now I’m trying to rouse all the children to get up and get ready for mass. So this is more of a picture post of the last week or so. Wishing you all a very merry Christmas!
This year we decided to head up north and celebrate Thanksgiving with my side of the family. We don’t do that often enough! It was a lot of fun. The traffic wasn’t too bad, until we got to Tacoma. Then we started getting a little antsy. I got photobombed by Anna 🙂
My cousin, William, brought out his childhood Lego’s for the kids. So smart! They played with them for hours.
My sister in law Joy, and I. I just love her. It was SO nice to sit and chat with her.
My Grandma and I.
Me, Abbey and Joy at the table. Everyone was talking, telling stories, eating pie and having a lot of fun!
