Thanksgiving and Cookie-Bake-Day

She decided to like celery tonight... can't get her to eat it at home usually :)

These are from our Thanksgiving dinner at GGma and GGpa's home in edmonds. I finally found our camera which had been 'lost' until tonight when I remembered where it was! :) Tucked away in our storage closet from when the boys went on their Christmas-Tree hunt. But sorry, Carey didn't even use the camera- Too cold and busy helping out all the other dads find the perfect tree out in the cold woods since he was the only one without a son tagging along. But not for long with our little boy 'Mac' coming soon! So no pictures of that adventure this year. Hopefully next year! We do have a lovely tree in our home though. The boys all did a fine job picking it out, and Ella and Levi did a wonderful job decorating it with handmade snowflakes, colored balls, and candy canes. A one-of-a-kind. :)

So here are some photos from the Thanksgiving weekend. The day after Thanksgiving we had our traditional 'Cookie-bake-day". My mom, sister (Auntie Kaylee), Niyah, and I all made 5 different kinds of cookies to freeze and enjoy throughout the month of December with friends and family. This tradition has been going on for as long as I remember. I can remember being soooo excited to get to leave school early on our designated "cookie-bake-days" when I was young. Yep, mom even let me miss school for this! It has been a special tradition to keep through the years and I look forward to carrying on this tradition with my daughter(s).

Much love to you all, and the Lord's richest blessings to you in Christ this week of Christmas,
