Early Thanksgiving

JiaLi with Gramma("MiMi") and Papa Normally on Thanksgiving, we have all of Joe's family over for dinner and then we go to my Mom's house later. This year, Joe's Mom is having surgery on Nov. 21st and will be in rehab following the surgery so we decided to celebrate Thanksgiving early. Here JiaLi is with her cousin Katelynn. JiaLi just loves her cousin and whenever they are together winds up following her everywhere(luckily Katelynn enjoys this). At the end of the night, the boys decided to relax and draw. Here are all the cousins seated at the dinner table--JiaLi was at the head but then decided she wanted to sit right next to her brothers. You can click on the picture to see it better:) Here they are--all the cousins!!! We have so much to be thankful for this year and it was special to celebrate this weekend--it was one year ago that Joe was in China and we were all anxiously awaiting his return. We are so looking forward to the real Thanksgiving day this year -since we have already celebrated, we have decided to celebrate by going out for a Chinese dinner. We will still stop by my Mom's too.

I love the photos. Of course Miss JiaLi needs to be in the middle of everything : ) I can't believe this time last year we were eating at the dumpling restaurant with the whole gang thinking of getting our babies the next morning! Love you guys.
