Upon arriving Ava was greeted most lovingly by her three beautiful cousins...
and Miss Julia...
Our lovely host, Shaun's sister, Mary putting her "Thanksgiving wine charms" on the glasses...
Beautiful Cheyanne and her Daddy...
The Host Family!
...and OUR family! (FINALLY a recent family photo!
...pay no attention to the baby with her skirt riding up)
which one do you like better?
PROUD Daddy and his beautiful girls!
Ava wanted so bad to be one of the "big girls" she hung out with them ALL day!
Silly birthday girl!
Julia made these awesome placecards. Each one different and unique and perfect!
The Boys and their Mum!
My Loving husband!
The little "big" girl. She'd just walk over to her baby bag and pull out her juice when she was thirsty. No whining needed and no trouble with her problem solving skills.
with her beautiful big Sister!
A couch full of stunning blondes ...and ONE brunette!
Don't you wish you were that flexible? (check out the little one trying to get in on the action)
I just LOVE this pic!
...and this one!
How much fun can you have with a giant leaf?
When I dressed her in this outfit, I immediately thought "Oh, this is SOoo something Mary's girl's would wear!" ...uh, by the looks fo those skirts, I guess I was right!
A father and daughter coming back from a Thanksgiving walk.
This is what I found drawn on the tablecloth. Not carved in a tree, but it's close!
And for the man who put in the basket of "thanksgiving thoughts" that was passed around and each one read aloud, "I'm thankful for the best wife ever!"
...I'm thankful for you! "Best husband ever!"
