Thanksgiving 2007

This is the whole family that we celebrated Thanksgiving with. It was a great time of family, fellowship and of course food!! I won't name everyone...that would take awhile!
Big sister Emma with her new little brother Evan. Evan was only six weeks old.
Ryan giving a horsey ride to Gracey and Christian.

Gracey, Judy and Ella. Gracey loved playing with all the big girls.
Christian with his Grammy and Grampy on the farm.
Christian had a blast with his cousin Gracey! They got to spend lots of time together.
This looks a little like Christmas morning doesn't it!! We celebrated an early Christmas with Ryan's family. Christian and Gracey in their new "boats" from Grammy and Grampy. These are actually supposed to be pop-up toy boxes, but apparently boats are more fun! This has continued to be a hit since we got home!

Gracey taking a few pictures with her new princess camera.

Christian's new CARS blanket that Grammy made him. He loves it and had to have it in the car on the trip home!
Ryan and I were thrilled to finally be able to meet Olivia Chatterton!! Many of you might remember that she was born with some heart issues and many of you have joined with us as we prayed for her through multiple surgeries! She is doing great now and she's so content!! I hope our little girl is as good as she is! I hope when you see this picture that you'll take a second and pray for Olivia that she won't catch any germs this winter! Is she cute or what?!!!
Aunt Angel gave Christian his Christmas presents early...a backhoe and a dump truck.

Wow, what fun! I have loved looking at all the pictures of your time in IL. That farm and family is impressive! I'm glad you guys had a good time and made it back safely. All I remember from Ryan's family from the wedding was that they gave some kind of African birthing seat...remember? Maybe you can get that back out when your next baby comes... ha ha. :)
