Thanksgiving and Cutting our Christmas Tree

Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving! Sarah shouted, "TURKEY," and dug right in.
So much to be thankful for! (namely, these 3 kids!)
Donovan with a turkey art project.

Aaron's turkey

Sarah's first art project.

The day after Thanksgiving, we headed out to cut our Christmas tree. The boys had fun pulling Sarah in her sled.

 (Note: They are not standing in front of our tree. Our tree is about 12 feet tall...)

Sarah isn't so sure why there's a tree in our house!

Grandma gave the boys these cute shirts - very appropriate for tree-cutting day!

Touching an ornament Grandma gave her.

Feeling a little more comfortable with the tree now.

Playing with the angel (before she was put on top of the tree)

Donovan was my biggest helper this year. Getting to climb on a ladder to put decorations up high appealed to him! 

All 3 kids in front of he decorated tree.

 It's a little hard to get the top of a 12 foot tree in a picture with 3 kids.

 2 silly boys and Santa

The only Santa we are attempting with Sarah this year. (We took the boys to Santa's Village in NH in September, and they told Santa what they are hoping for, and told him they have a new sister and she'd like dolls. So we are all set.)
