We waited 17 long weeks to tell most all of our family about our baby news, but we wanted to tell them in person and it definitely paid off to see everyones joyful reactions when we finally told them the good news.
Sorry no film or photos of peoples' reactions, but again, you can only imagine all of the excited looks.
Here is our Thanksgiving recap:
Getting Thanksgiving lunch ready. Notice the shorts and t-shirts, it was a warm day.
Granddad Connie cutting the turkey. Notice the two large bowls of black olives, it's a tradition to always have black olives at Thanksgiving/Christmas. They usually don't last long.
Jesse and I got to meet our nephew, Jack, for the first time. He was such a cutie! It made me want our little guy to be here...but I think it's best he waits until April :)
Such a natural.
My grandparents got to meet Jack for the first time also at Thanksgiving.
All the grandkids together with Granddad Earnest and Grandma Joyce.
And finally I will end with a goofy picture... It was such a added bonus to get to see my best friend over Thanksgiving. She lives in Los Angeles now and our visits are few and far between, but always full of fun and quality bonding.
Since neither of us have access to a Braums anymore, we had to make a stop and indulge! Julie does a much prettier "goofy" face then I do...I mean who looks like that eating ice cream? : )
