This year we spend Thanksgiving in Pennsylvania for the first time since 2004! Fortunately, family is close so I get to see them plenty throughout the rest of the year. This year however, I was especially thankful to have low key time with family. My grandmom was recently diagnosed with cancer and with my grandpop passing away earlier this year, we were glad to cherish the moments we have left.

Liam and Mark apparently coordinated their outfits. It was adorable to say the least.
Key different: Liam's sweet cords were adorned with mallard ducks!
It is hard to see, but this picture was just after Liam wiped out in the basement and he has a golfball size egg on his forehead. He was not in the mood for a photo op.

We seriously LOVE these girls!
Meghan, Julia, me, Brooke, and Emma Grace stealing center stage.
Mark and Emma playing dominoes. Somehow, Emma always knocked them down. Imagine that?
And we creating a Mac-lovin' monster.
Liam sat for what felt like hours watching an old home video of himself. Remember the elves from last Christmas? Well, Liam watched on repeat...over and over and over...
He memorized the clip, calling various family members over to the computer as they were about to make an appearance. He monologued the scene and even stopped it when people around him were getting to loud. Liam dominated the computer and it was a riot!
