Thanksgiving, 2011.

After spending a wonderful afternoon with Ben's family, we couldn't wait to get back with the kiddos and celebrate Thanksgiving all together!

We met up at Granti's house just in time for dinner:  turkey, ham, mac and cheese, asparagus, apricots, dressing, and buffalo chicken dip.  Harris is a turkey-loving fool!!!!

After filling up (again!), we cleaned up, packed up, and headed to downtown Lawrenceville to check out the Christmas tree lighting.  I love, love, love this Thanksgiving tradition, and the kids really enjoyed themselves this year as well.  Hadley, especially, was mesmerized by the "beautiful, colorful" lights, and both Harry and Babe were stoked to wave to Santa as he made his way up the courthouse steps.

Singing along with all the Christmas carols was a big hit, too.  So far this year, favorites include:  Rudolph, I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas, All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth, and "Funny Big Cooper," otherwise known as a crazy version of the The Twelve Days of Christmas.

Thankful doesn't even begin to describe the state of my heart these days. :)
