It's the holidays

So here are a whole lot of pictures for you to take in, please accept my apologies.  This time of year, every moment it seems, is worthy of a picture.  First we start with our Thanksgiving feast.  It was FABULOUS, if I do say so myself.  We had traditional flavors with a spin, nothing was really customary besides the turkey and gravy.  I think it was a hit.  What was not a hit was my dessert.  It was pumpkin ice cream pie and so very bland and icy.  Oh well!  You have to have a few of those every once in awhile.  
The day after thanksgiving we went to cut our tree down, one of my favorite traditions!  It was so much fun with BellaRose this year.  She had a blast!  I think what she loved the most was the dirt however.  She really did roll around in it just like a little piglet.


My how this baby makes us laugh all the time.  She is at such a fun age right now.  It is so interesting how she really does know what we are saying.  One thing that got Worth and I so tickled at the tree farm was when she trying to put on her hat.  She was working so hard, and it was barely on her head.  She finally gets it to where she wants it and puts her hands down and says "yep" (and the tone that she said is even more priceless).  Sort of like that is it perfectly!  It was the sweetest funniest thing we have seen.


Rainy was a little jealous of the tree so we dressed her in lights to make her feel apart of things.

Beautiful tree, good job Grants.
Rose at almost 9 still has great fun at the tree farm (we went Sat). She really likes the horses that pull the wagon to the tree field (spent 20mins with them). This year the "driver" looked like Santa.

I can't wait to go get our tree! I think we're gonna wait until next week when my dad gets here.

Your pictures are awesome... I can totally picture her trying to get that hat on. Ry does the same thing and has a very specific squeal when she finally gets it on!

And, um, the turkey. Wowo, that look sgood.

"Your tree is so fat!" says Adam.
We love it and love that little ponytail in BellaRose's hair.

I love that you continue your Thanksgiving open house. You guys are so great. I love the tree, but mostly I love BR rolling in the dirt. Sweet Rain-dog looks so pretty in lights! Can't wait to see the tree IN PERSON!!!

Oh - how I love a fat tree. It is my one request each year...to buy the fattest tree we can find. You have set the bar high, and I'm not sure if I can find a tree fatter than yours. Your tree is beautiful...and I am a bit jealous.
