For Thanksgiving this year, we got to spend a few days in Atlanta with my brother Mark's family, and my brother Matthew also drove down. Jamie had a BLAST playing with Uncle Matt, Aunt Sarah, and his cousins! We had a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner and had a lot of fun playing games, watching the kids, and just "sitting around and talking," ha ha. :) Unfortunately, this was also the year of the plague. Poor Thomas caught a bug from some of his classmates--from the sound of it, half the history department was ill. He spent the morning of his favorite holiday in bed with chest congestion and a fever, and on the day we drove home, Jamie and I caught it too. We're doing much better than we were, but we're all still coughing. Yuck. But other than the illness, it was a wonderful trip and we are so happy we got to spend the holiday with family! Just hope we didn't leave any germs behind us....

Jamie's back in there somewhere too. They all love this little house!

tickles from Aunt Sarah!
It was funny how it suddenly got silent when we gave them all their pie :) Also, note the outfit changes. The girls were playing upstairs when they suddenly all ran down laughing hysterically, wearing their swimsuits over their clothes. Too funny!
speaking of pie... :)

Trying to get a cousin picture--this was the best of the bunch.
