Thanksgiving 2017.

I was very sad to realize halfway through our car ride to Des Moines that I forgot my camera, so Thanksgiving 2017 is captured through my phone. Oh well. 

We had a great Thanksgiving! We spent it in Des Moines with my family, and all my siblings were able to be there, so it was a special time with family. Breakfast was filled with cinnamon rolls and donuts (not on the same day, ha) and Norah definitely got on board with that. :)

Breakfast crew.

Watching the parade. (Norah watched a couple floats, but then wasn't too interested. I hoped she would love it more, but oh well. She was too busy playing.)

Grandma got Norah this amazing, giant Minnie light up cup, and of course she loves it.

Lucy and Ellory were very entertained with many people to hold/play with them and by all of grandma and grandpa's toys! Savings all of our toys from when we were little is totally paying off- they love them and it's so nice that there's lots of toys when we go visit!

Had to get one more wear out of their pumpkin outfits before Christmas festivities.

"I must take every toy out of the buckets individually and put it in my mouth to check if it tastes good." Guess what? They all tasted good. :)

They are loving their baby food!

Thanksgiving dinner. It was delayed because Black Friday shopping for new iphones took longer than anticipated, but dinner was had and the phones were got (not for me, but for others), and it was a fun day with family! Love this picture!

Trying to take a family picture. I took one with Lucy and Ellory while Kley was trying to convince Norah to be in the photo.

Clearly, it didn't work very well. This was the best family shot we got- finger in the corner and Norah squirming.

Norah didn't want to be picked up and said she just wanted to look through the poles. :) She's also chewing on a piece of rubber jelly from the play food bin that looks surprisingly realistic.

Happy Thanksgiving! We are thankful for many things, but thankful for our three healthy, happy girls and for where we are at. It was and is an adjustment going from 1 to 3 and the first few months were a whirlwind, but we are thankful for the busy fun we have and to feel like we're in a new normal. Parenthood is an amazing responsibility and blessing!


  1. Love seeing your pics!! The family picture is hilarious where Norah is peeking! 😂❤️
