a round of applause for my amazing mom who did pretty much ALL the cooking for our thanksgiving feast this year. and even though we were missing bryson, jen, crystal and morgan, we still managed to have quite the crowd of people. it was the best meal and filled our bellies to the brim. we had our traditional seven layer jello (my favorite thing ever), homemade rolls, green beans, yams, mashed potatoes, and of course turkey and stuffing (yum!). we finished off with amazing pumpkin pie for dessert. it was such a fun night, once again reminding us how much we have to be thankful for.

just a ton of photos from this thanksgiving morning. hope you are all having a lovely turkey day. among the many things we have to be thankful for this year, we are especially thankful for our family and our little chicky. we are missing steve's family and hope they are having a great time without us (as hard as that may be...;). we feel so blessed for all that we have in our lives. it has been a great year. happy thanksgiving!
little miss jayne. oh how i love you. for all of you back in utah missing this little face, elyse and ryan had the pleasure of capturing a ton of photos for your enjoyment. they are photographers in the making (or so they felt with my massive, makes-you-feel-like-a-professional-when-you're-really-not kinda camera).
baby girl and i are in maryland for two weeks for thanksgiving (hence the lack of posts). steve will be joining us on monday for the second week here. we can't wait to see him. in the meantime we are loving spending time with my family, relaxing, and playing with little chicky. she's getting more and more giggly each day. today i had her wrapped up for her "chill time" (the time of night when i wrap her up and lay her on the couch to chill cause its the awkward hours before dinner when i don't want to put her down for a nap cause its so close to bedtime but she's a little tired and cranky) and managed to get the little one laughing. it was so cute, i had to share. enjoy.
