Thanksgiving week

We traveled to visit my family for Thanksgiving this year and we had a blast, as usual! The kids LOVED LOVED LOVED spending time with their cousins!

My brother gave my nephew a 'Captain Underpants' book and the boys thought it would be hilarious to play 'Captain Underpants.' And it was HILARIOUS! Their costumes included capes and...underpants. They really made me work for these cream may or may not have been used as a bribe...and it may or may not have been THEIR idea!! "We'll LET you take our picture if you give us ice cream." OH YES THEY DID. They know how to work me. :) John, these next two are for you! :)

Thanksgiving day was my sister's birthday -
she is 25 now, which makes me really OLD. Yikes!!
My mom made her this beautiful quilt for her birthday:

And we celebrated with pumpkin cheesecake!

The rest of the trip was spent playing games, watching movies and playing in the snow!

Twins. I mean, cousins...

And on the way home hubby spotted a bald eagle - it was so COOL!

Glad to know that J isn't the only one who runs around playing superheros in underpants- no wonder the boys get a long so well. Beautiful pictures as usual too!
