For thanksgiving all my brothers, their families, and my parents got to come to Illinois to be with us!! My parents came out Wednesday and my brothers came out Friday and Saturday and we had our thanksgiving meal Saturday evening. It was so fun to have everyone out my way for the holiday! I have never had that many people in my house at once but it was fun and full of love! Everyone’s shoes were lined up by the door and for some reason it just made me feel special that everyone made it out and made themselves at home! We had 13 people sleeping in our house including me and Loren Saturday night. For breakfast we kinda spread all out to eat since our table only holds six people. It was laid back relaxed and just great to all be together. I am thankful for the strong family connection we have! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and is in the Christmas spirit now!!
