Happy Thanksgiving!

This year, it was our turn to spend Thanksgiving with my family!  So, we loaded up and headed to Franklin to celebrate Turkey Day! =)

It sure is a fun and busy house with all three of us girls, husbands and babies!  We had a blast!  Bella is 2.5, Sadie is 1.5, Jackson is 6 mo. and Houston is 2 mo!  Fun...fun!  

Linz, Bella, Sadie and Jackson giving each welcome hugs!

We had so much fun at Monkey's Treehouse!  For those of you who aren't familiar it is heaven for toddlers and moms!  Pretty much it's a huge room filled with a playground (treehouse), toys, kitchen sets, legos, coloring table....and more!  The girls loved it and us moms enjoyed relaxing on the comfy chairs! =)
Mimi happily volunteered to help the girls down the slides!  Good ole Mimi!
Jackson just loved all the extra attention!  Auntie Linz is full of cuddles. =)

A Boyd holiday would not be a true holiday if we didn't all wake up early and head out to run a race together!  So, we all enjoyed the local Franklin Turkey Trot 5k!  Once again, Mimi cheered on the side with the babies while Dad, Jer, John, Linz and I ran!  
My sweet boy was full of hugs as soon as I crossed the finish line! =)

Yay!!!  Linz and I were proud of ourselves...no record times (although I think we both PR'd for 5k times since birthing children!)...we both felt strong and healthy!  Lots to be thankful for this Thanksgiving! =)
Love this handsome boy....and his Mimi!!!

Here's the crew!  We'll get to drag out the Moore clan next year...we gave them the year off since baby Houston is just 2 months old! =)

Cheering with Mimi!

Lots of smiles for such an early morning! =)

Sweet girl!

My cute little turkeys!  Best cheerleaders there!

We all loved preparing Thanksgiving dinner together!  Many, many memories are made in the kitchen together!

We celebrated my Grandma's 88th birthday!  Family all piled in town...20 of us total to celebrate sweet Grandma's birthday!  This picture captures four generations =)

So much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving....God is good and His love endures forever!
