Where I have been... Photo Overload.

I am not sure if you have noticed, but I have been gone for a few days...

We flew into Springfield, MO to surprise my family for thanksgiving!
They had no idea we were coming, and were really surprised.

Although flight and drive was hard with the little kidos, it was all worth it in the end.

We all had a blast! Growing up in a large family sure has its perks! Makes for lots of fun for you and your kids in the long run.

Here is our whole family (minus my sisters newborn little girl):

We have 6 girls in the family:

I love how our family picture turned out! 

We made delicious pies:

My mothers yummy turkey:

What did people do before Iphones and Ipads?

We had so much fun visiting with my family, It really is to bad that we only see them once a year. 
But I guess that makes it that much special. 

Thanks for visiting!
