This year Jayson's parents came for Thanksgiving. It was a wonderful, busy, fun-filled week! We kept Grandma and Grandpa busy taking kids to movies (everybody's favorite was "Tangled"), working on projects around the house and babysitting. My father-in-law spent a good chunk of time cutting out a beautiful wood nativity scene for our front yard. He also cut me a set of pipe chimes! My responsibility at church (in the church it is called a "calling") is Primary Chorister, which means that I teach/lead the music for the 3-11 year-olds. They are going to LOVE playing the pipe chimes!
My Mother-in-law taught me how to make adorable flower bows for the girl's hair. We had fun making all different types and colors of flowers. My girls now have the most beautifully decorated heads on the block :-) In addition my in-laws babysat so that Jayson and I could get away for a quick over-nighter to San Antonio. It was so nice to enjoy some time together away from the kids.
We had Thanksgiving dinner while the quints were napping. They actually all slept long enough for us to enjoy a leisurely meal, which is indeed something to be grateful for!
The quints had a full 9-course Thanksgiving meal when they woke up....unfortunately I did not get even a single picture! We did, however, take lots of video which Jayson will hopefully get edited soon. Below is another video--NOT the one we took this year--but if you watch it, it will give you a clue as to what the video we DID take is about!
Still wondering what was different about the first picture? A couple days before Thanksgiving, Riley got GLASSES! I think he looks cute with them on, and he is happy that he can see better!
