After some bribing I was able to get the boys to pose for some Christmas photos in some tangled Christmas lights.

Thanksgiving 2013

Thanksgiving 2013

I’m a little slow on this post (so I’ll have to backdate it) but we had an awesome Thanksgiving.  My Aunt Leslie and Uncle Lonnie flew up on Monday evening to spend the week with us.  Katie, my cousin/their daughter, joined us on Wednesday evening.  It was the first time the boys got to meet Lonnie, Leslie, and Katie. Steve’s parents drove over from Pittsburgh and his brother, Paul, drove from Virginia.  So we had a full house.  It was so nice having familiar faces everywhere.  The boys did such a great job.

Anthony was so comfortable with Katie that he just threw his leg right over her.  There was no stranger danger at all with Katie.  I think they thought she looked a lot like me!

She is so good with babies!  She’s going to make a great mom some day.

Our Thanksgiving feast was amazing.  Besides the giant 22 pound turkey we had the typical Thanksgiving essentials: sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, brussels sprouts, rolls.  And then some fun Richardson favorites: Strawberry pretzel salad, broccoli souffle and carrot souffle (the boys favorite!).

The turkey wasn’t the only 20 lb creature that needed to be prepared on Thanksgiving.  The boys got to get nice and clean in the kitchen sink.

I someone didn’t get pictures of the food?  …slacking this year.  But everyone humored me while I took some pictures of everyone with the boys.  Thank you guys!
