Happy Thanksgiving

I know, I know, it's Christmastime now and I'm way behind. But I had to document how wonderful our Thanksgiving was! We spent Thanksgiving in Oregon with Darren's family and had such a great time. Check out the kids table full of cute boys!Here's the Jolley clan that was in attendance. Love you guys! The food was soooo good and I ate soooo much pie!The next day, Grandma and Grandpa took us to a great little gym and the boys had a blast. Here's Caleb and Justin hanging around.They played in the foam pit forever. Justin called it the pool and kept pulling me back and back and back to it. So funny. And yes, I saw New Moon, and my dear sweet husband took me to it. Isn't he a good sport? There was much that I loved about it, but overall it didn't live up to my high expectations. I fell deeply in love with Jacob in the book, but Jacob just didn't do it for me in the movie! Too many bad lines and the acting just wasn't up to snuff. Sorry Taylor Lautner.What a beautiful break from real life this holiday was for me. I'm was so thankful to spend a relaxing weekend away and be so well taken care of. It doesn't get better than this: Thanksgiving dinner cooked for you, came close to beating Darren in Scrabble, boys play hard with their cousins, free babysitting to go on a date with my hubby, and talking and laughing with great family. Life is good and I am definitely thankful!

Yea, I think we pretty much have similar views on New Moon, just like I knew we would.

I just love that Jolley clan! I wish so bad that my boy could join all those other boys.

Glad you had a nice, relaxing weekend. Next time you'll REALLY beat Darren at scrabble.

I was relaxed and fell in love with your family just reading your post! I'm so glad you had a great time! Miss you!

That was so fun, I need some copies of the gym pictures so I can do a page in my scrapbook. I can't believe I went off without my camera.

It was so fun to have you here, I can't even say how much I loved it.

I need to go see New Moon again, I feel all confused now, my first impression was that I really liked it so I have to see what you and Emily are talking about.

I'm still a little bitter about the scrabble game, I think I won. I'm going to miss you real bad at Christmas! Tell the busy Bishop hello, I'm afraid to call so make him call us during the holidays.

REALLY? you didn't like jacob?! I'm the complete opposite... I'm all about Edward in the books, but in the movies, I like Jacob better. hahaha!

Oh man, it looks like thanksgiving was a complete success. i'm so happy. every time I see all those cousin boys together I just miss them so bad! i love how Joseph and Kellen are always touching in every picture. SO CUTE!
