Thanksgiving break was so great. We were so lucky to have Roger's mom, Margaret come visit for a few days prior to Thanksgiving. Then we had our good friends the Ellsworth's come visit for a Sunday dinner (which was too short, can't you spend the night next time? (I know you can't because Chris' family is here, blah, blah, blah)) Then we made the drive to Boise to spend the night with more friends before continuing on to Portland. We knew our Boise friends before we were married and I love seeing the life people have made for themselves over the past 12 years. There are so many things that we don't expect, but it always works out. We love you Cole's, it was so good to see you!

Why is Portland so far away? I wish we could see the Stewart's and the Worth's all the time. It was the most relaxing vacation. I slept in almost everyday (shocking, huh?) because the kids were happily playing with their cousins. I felt like I hardly saw our girls, they were so busy. The Stewart's always spoil us, it's like they don't want us to leave (we don't...) Thanks again, we had a great time and can't wait to do it again soon.

The Thanksgiving dinner and guests. Look at the pomegranate jello, the Vielstich's are so proud that it's a must for many a Thanksgiving dinner!

Our kids with the Stewart girls. Brooke was the best baby sitter, Liam loves you!
