my stomach is still full from all the feasting this thanksgiving. why does the food have to be sooooo good? we had a great time visiting with both sides of the family. we spent thanksgiving day at mom's house with all the family, and then friday spent the day with andy's family. we are so blessed to have amazing families with lots of cousins to play with!!

karis and i were checking out the ads for black friday, and nieces reagan and milia were hanging out too...trying to eat the paper!

winding down with movie time on the pull out couch!

then on to the cousins on the vanderveer side! we all wore brown to get some family pictures!

with ana and papaw

with everyone together. ritchey couldn't get away from work, but andy's awesome photoshop skills were able to work him in....:):) (he's the one front and center...)

Logan is 6!!

well, he's six years old today. we sang to him with a candle in an orange danish roll this morning. a tradition we do with all the boys. (sometimes its donuts...they get to choose their breakfast). we surprised him at lunch and showed up at school with sonic. and we're going to attempt chuck e. cheese tonight. tysen isn't feeling great, so we'll see how that goes. logan has been asking for weeks to go, and we keep saying we'll go on his birthday! he had asked for a castle to play with his guys in, so here's him putting it together with dad.
he also loves the Cowboys! asked specifically for this Romo jersey....made me so proud!

and now there are 9!

for mom's bday this year, we decided it was time to give her a formal 'grandkids' picture. we got them all matching and adorable and set about the difficult task of getting them all to at least look in the same direction! there are 9 of them now...and logan (not even 6 yet) is the oldest. we got crazy andy to do a puppet show which had them all laughing you can see...
my little guys...

and of course one with granny...
L-R- logan, tysen, granny, milia, reagan, ian, audrey, zach, kenzie, and aubren
us older kids were feeling left out...

we're almost all here...missing baby brother, sam, and brother in law, brian...and we seem to be missing a little maturity from my husband in the back. :)
