One of Those Photos

This might be one of those pictures that we have our kids re-create in adulthood...
Such is life at our house right now.

Hold Her

I wish I had more of a frame of reference for being the mother of four.  I wish I brought to my role the perspective of having been on of four siblings... or even one of two or three siblings, but I don't.

That being said, I wonder what Addallee's perspective is going to be as the fourth child with three siblings less than four years older than she is.  Her siblings love her and I get asked upwards of 50 times a day by one of the older children if they can hold her.  In fact, that is all Caroline will say, "Hold her! Hold her!" as she sits down on the couch and meticulously puts a burp cloth on her shoulder the same way I do when I hold Addallee.

My football team did not win yesterday... but my crew looked absolutely adorable for the game.

Thanksgiving Lunch

Yesterday we all went to Hubby's school for the family Thanksgiving lunch.  It was Addallee's first trip to Hubby's school and we had a lot of fun and a great meal.

I wore Addallee for the entire time at school... and Tracey insisted on wearing her baby doll, which was pretty adorable.

Howard bonded with some redheaded middle school boys.

Caroline was spoiled by some of the kids' favorite baby-sitters.

And we even got a family picture complete with Tracey riding a bear mascot.

Happy Thanksgiving!
