Reasons why I should adopt some older children:


They can be helpful and adorable...and you already know what you are getting!





...Sometimes they turn out to be professional football players AND terrific big brothers! btw, this story/movie was phenomenal.




And they entertain your younger children without being asked because all they are really doing is entertaining themselves.


We had a blast over Thanksgiving. We went down to Phoenix to my aunt Wendy's house. Perfect group, perfect size, perfect food, perfect relaxation and perfect company. We swam, played a new game that the boys made out of PVC pipe and golf balls, went boating, running, watched football, watched movies about football and generally enjoyed the company of people we really, really like-which in my mind, is precisely what Thanksgiving is about. It's my favorite holiday by a long shot.

Have you ever gone through an Eli withdrawal...probably not. It's so sad. I can't wait to see you all again in 3 weeks!!

Oh my gosh he is getting so huge. He really looks like a big boy. I love horse balls... that's what we call it in my family. We always play it at Lake Powell. Looks like a good time.

tubing and water sports over Thanksgiving? That is so not fair. How come there weren't any shots of you in your swimsuit?

Sounds like a great Thanksgiving, we were in Arizona too. I know what you mean about older kids, I wonder how long it will take before Hallie is helpful :) Good luck with number two
