Thanksgiving 2012

Although, we try our best to be thankful for what we have every day...we always look forward to celebrating Thanksgiving with family and friends!  Here are some photos of what we did!

Thanksgiving lunch at daycare with my little cutie!

This was on B's classroom door.
It says Boston is thankful for "Baby".  I had to get a pic :).

~Thanksgiving at MawMaw and PawPaw's!~

Izzy and Boston taking a walk with MawMaw to go look at the garden.

We are still working on different foods and textures ;).

Taking a ride on the "tractor" with Dad. 
Last time, it scared him.  This time, he didn't want to get off!

GiGi made these yummy turkey treats.
So cute and the babies got a kick out of them!

Tim, PawPaw, and Uncle Bobby frying the turkey.
It was delicious, as always!

Getting some GiGi love. :)

Loren, Scott, Eli, and Caleb-on-the-way!
Love them!

Like father, like son.  Ha Ha!

Kelsey and Loren helped the babies make a gingerbread house.
They had lots of fun and did a great job!

Sweet sleepy boy from all the fun.

Work Baby Shower for Blake

My sweet friends, Leslie and Rene, along with my boss, Jason, gave a shower for me at work.  They were so sweet taking the time to plan and prepare the baby shower.  With pizza and cupcakes and baby shower games, I had a great time!

They even had a maternity photo of us displayed at the front of the room :).
So grateful for all of the gifts!

They played a "guess the belly size" game.

For this game, you had to unclip as many clothespins as you could fit into one hand.

My boss won the game!

Jason and Brett were troopers being the only guys at the baby shower ;).

A shot of my 8 month pregnant belly

Leslie and Rene are such sweet friends that I am very grateful to have met at work.
They certainly help my days go by easier!  
Many thanks to them for organizing a great shower!

Shreveport Baby Shower for Blake

Loren and I were very blessed to have our sweet family throw a baby shower for Blake and Caleb.  It has been really neat being pregnant at the same time and it's very exciting that the boys will be so close in age with Blake due in January and Caleb due in March!

The shower was given at the clubhouse in GiGi and Pappy's neighborhood.  MawMaw, GiGi, Aunt April and Brittany and Kelsey did a wonderful job with the shower.  The food was great and we had a wonderful time! 

Delicious cake made by a friend of Loren's

Loren and cute little Eli

He will make such a good big brother.
