{a weekend of thanks}

 We had a great weekend at the lake. Oh how things have changed since last year!
This was last year heading out the lake for Thanksgiving versus this year - from a wee babe to a busy toddler! So crazy but I love it.
After a long trip out the lake we helped Nana, Uncle Ken and Auntie Cathy rake leaves. Some of us just played in them!
I love the colors out there. So pretty.
 Mornings at the lake are the best.
{PS. Thank you to Mom for letting us sleep in and taking Delainey and Cruz. Delainey enjoyed getting up at 5:15am so we cuddled in bed until she had enough and then I handed her off to Gramma! I can't remember the last time I slept past 8! :)}
 Loves her slide!
Justin, myself and the girls went for a walk in the trails we snow shoe on. It was so pretty and just smells so good.
Cruz loved it and it was so warm! I was in a tank top and capris!
Loving this fall weather.
Mrs. T and Mom with their Grand-daughters!
 I'm outta here!
 Fun with Dad.
 Lake buddies! Kaley & Delainey.
Watching Uncle play Kanjam. She was so interested!
 Kisses for Cruzie!
 I took this bottom photo and realized it was just like the top one that Whit took when Cruz was just a wee pup. LOVE this girl so much.
 We went down to Thomas's for a visit and so the girls could play again.
Delainey loved playing in the sand and walking in the water and cried when Gramma wouldn't get her sit in it!? Not my daughter.
Wheelbarrow rides were a hit.
 Fun in the leaves!
Enjoyed being outside with Auntie Jolie & Uncle Jeff.
We had a delicious turkey dinner with the whole family at our cabin.
 Justin had a little whipped cream with his pie. ;)
 Flying bear!
 Delainey went for one last boat ride of the year with Gramma & Grandpa.
Such a perfect weekend. Plus it's always nice to get away!
Last night we had dinner at Debbie's for Thanksgiving too - I took no photos?! What? I know. Fail.  But trust me that Emerson, Nixon and Delainey looked cute as ever and had a blast playing, we all enjoyed dinner and dessert very much and left there insanely full and sleepy!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend as well.
