Happy Thanksgiving!

What a wonderful day it was! We slept in (well, as much as could be slept when Phoebe wakes one up at 6:40 am). Then we had a brunch at 10:45 (should have been earlier given we were going to be eating a big Thanksgiving meal at 2:00, but live and learn) consisting of Pecan Sticky Buns, Fruit Cocktail and Omelets. The kids played on the computer and played board games while Phillip and I got ready for the day. I tried to get them to watch The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on the computer (we opted not to get any kind of cable when we moved here, thus we only get one fuzzy channel that apparently does not air the Parade); but you couldn't hear anything from the web cam's vantage point, so they got a little bored with it. Friends from the church at Fleming Island had us over again like last year. It was so much fun! Jonathan had boys to play with. An older girl watched Phoebe most of the time. I was surrounded by teachers, so it was fun to talk to them about school stuff. I played one game of tag pool (not sure what the name is exactly) and Phillip and I won! (Amazingly since I only pocketed three balls and one of them was for the other team.) God has really blessed us. I was so sad that we wouldn't be with family this year, but I really had a good time with friends.

These are some pictures of us at home at the beginning of the day.

Elizabeth is trying to push Jonathan off of "her" chair in this picture.

See, I stuck in a picture of me, Amy!! And I have curlers in my hair. How redneck of me.

Jonathan being "cool" as he calls it.

Phoebe being dazed because she's so tired from not getting enough sleep last night. Sleep in, girl!

And again we end with Elizabeth trying to push Jonathan off of her chair.

I love the look of your new kitchen. It looks so big! And I like the color of the walls. What is the rest of your house like? Post more pics when you have the chance! How is the new school room? Play spaces?
