Turkey Holiday

We headed to see the fam to start off the holidays. It was quite eventful in random ways:

-It was the first time the scale has gone up since being post-baby, but the food was worth it!
-Javen got to meet his great-great grandparents (which I don't have the pic) and it was great spending time with everyone.

-I learned to crochet darling little beanies. I know, I know, those of you who know me well are probably gawking but it is true. I never said I was good at it but, yes, I learned.

-I sewed a project that I'm actually pleased with (which I can't say what because it is a present)
-And made a dang good apple pie from scratch with Kelsie.

Of course this was all with help, but I did it nonetheless. Jason's response to all this in his exact words: "What did you do with my wife?!"

-And of course we took TONS of pics and I just have to post a few....
I think this just might be my favorite pic..ever (above)
poor Javen is being left behind, but it was fun hanging with these little cuties!

I love love love love love the new family picture at the top, but then your favorite of Javen's is mine too. Maybe I'm just biased because he's wearing his favorite sweater from his favorite non-family member.
