The Past Few Days

Here's a little picture summary of the past few days...which have been SO wonderful. The only bad thing is how quickly they have gone by.

We (Nate) did the turkey again this year. Nate did a great job researching a yummy method/recipe and then getting it thawed and salted and gutted and then stuffed and then carved.
We had Thanksgiving dinner at our new church building with a bunch of other couples and their kids.

Nate and Jansen picked out our tree and brought it home yesterday.

Jansen loved this!

Random picture I snapped of Jansen---rare side effects from his sedation have caused him to lose the use of his hands. But we're adapting. :)

Natalie just hasn't been herself the past few days. Maybe an ear infection? Her face says it all.

Looks like you had a great time! I must say I'm a little jealous your hubby is home the entire weekend. Enjoy every minute and we will see you tomorrow. And that Jansen once again showing us his great talent. What do they call it when you can write with a hand and a foot? Toesiehandadextrious?

Oh, that makes me sad. I hate when my kids are sick. It is fun cause they are cuddly, but I really hate everything else about it. I love the Holidays, Turkey looks good!

Natalie does look a little ill, but you look AMAZING! I love those pics of Jansy Pants helping Nate. I know I've told you this before, but that Jansen reminds me so much of Evie. Have I ever told you that she gives me things with her toes? It's so weird. Whenever she wants to watch a new DVD, she brings it to me in her toes. Weird.

Looks like you had a fun Thanksgiving. We miss everyone in Columbus sooooo much! Poor Jansen had to get his tooth pulled, how sad. I can't believe our babies are 15 months already. Connor has looked like Natalie does in the picture for the past month. Dang cold won't go away. Between that and getting his molars he gets up like 5 times a night. I feel like I have a newborn again.
