Thanksgiving & Kid Friendly Dinner Parties!

This was the first time in 5 years that Mike and I didn't make it to Michigan for Thanksgiving. We were sad to not be with the Kerschens, Coopers and Gramma and Opa Hanou but really grateful to not be traveling with 2 babies during the busiest time of year. Instead we hosted our Colorado Family!  Casey & Rob, Ian & Kim and Holden & Everett joined us for yummy food and a beautiful afternoon!
We weren't able to get a picture of the 4 of us because Lillian couldn't be bothered to stop playing with her cousins for ONE second!
Uncle Ian, donning his old school Redskins shirt and teaching Jak some football basics.
The parents-to-be practicing!
This crazy balloon held its helium for 3 weeks and was the FAVORITE toy of every child that came to visit.  Seriously, why buy real toys? 
The classic cliche "kids table".  They were proud to have their own table but insisted they needed a centerpiece!
The Sunday after Thanksgiving we enjoyed another kid friendly dinner party with some friends.  We had 6 kids and 6 adults join us for a pot roast dinner!  Great planning on my part because dinner was prepped and ready before anyone arrived.  The weather was great so we were able to play outside.
Our kiddie table from Zane & Sarah sure has gotten good use already!
We moms enjoyed catching up with each other while the Dad's stepped up to the plate...all three men had their hands full.  Judging by their smiles, I'd say they enjoyed every minute of it!
