Thanksgiving Weekend

Here is Quinn! Can you believe she is already 4 weeks old? She is getting so big. I know she is still tiny but it isn't the same as that new born tiny. Gavin told me today that she is so cute that sometimes he gets tears in his eyes. Teague said that she is so cute he just can't stand it. We are pretty smitten.

No official turkey bowl this year but Kenyon took the kids out to the front yard for a our own little mini family flag football game. The kids had a great time and no major injuries.

Now we are counting down the days to Christmas. I love advent calendars and I saw one like this in Creating Keepsakes so I gave it a go. It is the first part of a Christmas present for my sister-in-law Lindsey.

That is so so so sweet that they love her so much. I think that is one of the greatest hopes of being a mommy... that your kids love eachother. Your kids are gorgeous.

Absolutely adorable! I was just about to text you to ask which issue of CK, but I pulled out my Dec. issue and the page literally fell open to it. So, question answered! I think I will try it. Where did you get the box?

A few things:
1. The family picture of the kids at the top is ADORABLE.
2. What Gavin said about Quinn (in this post and the others) is TOO CUTE! That is so sweet the love they have for that beautiful addition to the family.
3. Did you make that calendar?! HOW- teach me!!

What can I say that hasn't already been said? Bravo on the box. Crafty people make me proud.

The advent calendar box is by Karen Foster. (google Karen Foster countdown calendar) It is kind of hard to find. I found it at Croppin' Paradise - online. It is super easy once you have the box. I can gladly talk you through it. My only complaint about it - I wish it were a little bigger.

I cannot believe all of that hair that your adorable little Quinn has! She is so beautiful! And your kids are so grown up!

Annie, your kids are adorable in their Christmas pic! And where do you find time for all your cutie craft projects? I need a time management class from you, and a couple of patterns. Love the calendar!
