Happy Thanksgiving!

We are back home from our trip to Indiana.  It was a great trip.  Our girls were happy and cooperative, and we enjoyed relaxing and eating and spending time with friends and family.  It was a much needed break from everyday life!

The weather was great on Wednesday and Thursday, and the kids loved being able to play outside.  Audrey and Papaw had a great time playing with each other outside.

We had a little scare right before we sat down to eat Thanksgiving dinner.  Audrey started choking on a lifesaver.  She was hysterical, and it was hard to tell what was wrong with her or what we should do to help her.  Daniel's mom called 911.  Audrey ended up choking and gagging up part of the lifesaver before the ambulance arrived.  So when the EMTs came up to the house, she was fine, though still a bit on the hysterical side.  After some water and a glass of lemonade and a little Tinker Bell, Audrey was as good as new and ready to eat Thanksgiving dinner!

After the table was cleared, the kids found all the play train sets in the house and set them all up...three in all!  They all had a lot of fun playing. 
It was fun to watch all the kids interact with each other.   Our girls are the youngest in the family but they are starting to interact more with their older cousins.  At one point all six of them were playing hide and seek together, and it was so cute!

On Friday afternoon, Daniel and I dropped the girls off at Daniel's brother's house.  Then we went to the theater to see Lincoln, which was a good movie.  Then we picked the girls up again and met our friends BJ and Kellie and their kids at Chick-fil-a.

After Chick-fil-a, we went over to Barnes and Noble.  Kellie and I had fun browsing all the books while BJ and Daniel chatted and the kids ran all around the children's department.  We tried to get a picture of all the kids together, but that never works out very well!

 Truett loved giving kisses to Isla!
