It’s been two months since Thanksgiving, but I feel like I have to post these pictures before I post newer ones.

We had a full house for Thanksgiving! We were so excited that we finally have room for guests (and even a bed specifically for them)! Jonathan’s brother and his family drove down from Michigan and his parents flew in from Arizona.

Before the senior Joneses arrived we took a quick trip into DC to see the Natural History Museum. My kids always love the fish tank there.


Jonathan’s dad was nice enough to cut Lincoln’s hair hours after they arrived. We’re pretty classy with the Wegmans bag turned poncho.


My sister-in-law Brittney and I spent hours in the kitchen cooking our big meal. Brittney was nice enough to do whatever I asked, including building this turkey out of vegetables that I saw on Pinterest and had to replicate.




It’s always so fun to have family around and my kids loved having lots of time to play with their cousins and grandparents.






While they were here, my father-in-law worked tirelessly on a project for me. Our house doesn’t have an entry closet, so he was nice enough to build me this “drop zone”. I haven’t gotten baskets for the cubbies at the top yet, but it has been so wonderful having a place to put coats and shoes!


We were sad when everyone had to leave. It’s fun having visitors!

Your thanksgiving feast looks amazing - I can see why you wanted that turkey veggie plate - more like an olive plate;) I'm super impressed by your father in law's "drop zone."
