Family Pictures from our Thanksgiving Weekend


It has been a busy stretch of days here with our family in town and our Dear Lillie sale going on. We have had so much fun with my parents and siblings and I thought I would share a few photos from the last few days. I was so excited to finally get a few shots of Lola and I. I only have a couple of us together since she was born seeing how I am normally the one taking them. My poor little munchkin has been quite sick the last two days but hopefully will start feeling better soon. 

Anyway, here we are on Thanksgiving.

 And a shot of Jon and I with the girls.

And here she is with Mimi

On Friday, we took the girls to see Santa in New Town. I didn't really get any good shots of Lola with him but I like how she is eyeing him in this one! Haha! She was quite content sitting on his lap but for the third year in a row Lillie was scared of him and wouldn't go near him. It is kind of funny because she isn't scared of much (we were at Busch Gardens last night and she was begging to go on the huge roller coaster) but she is scared to death of Santa for some reason.

And then after our visit to see Santa we headed down to Colonial Williamsburg for a picnic in front of the Governor's Palace. The weather was beautiful! Here is Lillie being swung in the air by Jamie and Dana.

And here is Dana, Lillie, Jamie, Mimi and Lola

And here is Lillie and Papa. As you can see from her knees, she had quite a bit of fun playing in the grass.

And then last night we took the girls to Christmastown at Busch Gardens. I have been wanting to go for the past three years and am so glad we finally decided to do it. I think it was the most fun I have ever seen Lillie have. She walked around completely wide eyed and just kept saying the funniest and sweetest things. At one point when we were all sitting down and eating S'mores she looked up at Dana and I completely unprompted and said, "This is a dream come true!" I think we all melted. And then a little while later she and Jamie were checking out some of the lights and she leaned in and told Jamie the same thing. Her favorites were the train ride and penguins and she was completely enthralled by the ballet performance. I didn't bring my real camera in but here's an iPhone shot of Lola and I all bundled up.

I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday weekend as well! 
I will be back tomorrow with pictures from Lillie's birthday party. Here's a little peek:

Oh and don't forget, there is still time to take advantage of our sale!

Have a blessed Sunday!

  1. I love seeing your family spend time together. Y'all are so beautiful!! I am glad you had such a nice Thanksgiving weekend. Happy Birthday to Princess Lilllie. The sneak peek of her celebrations looks so adorable and I cannot wait to see the rest, And I love what Lillie said at Busch gardens. To me, it is all about those moments:) And how lucky we can record it all on our blogs because somewhere down the road after a few children we forget (unfortunately). Kate and I are going to the Nutcracker Ballet today and we are so excited to have a special Mommy-daughter day:)

  18. What a beautiful party! Are you going to do a tutorial on the "L" you made? I really love it and would like to do one for my daughter's room.

  20. Thanks so much, everyone!

    Kelli - I don't think I will get around to doing a tutorial for the big L on the wall, but there should be a bunch of them out there on other blogs. Basically I cut a foam board into the shape of a L and then glued on a bunch of cupcake liners. It definitely took a lot longer than I expected :)
