Thanksgiving Week: Thursday

Nothing says Thanksgiving like swimming, right?  Evelyn loves to swim, and we have been so busy that we haven't been able to go swimming in the hotel pool.  So we decided after breakfast to go for a quick swim before we headed over to Grandma and Grandpa's house. 
The pool has a perfect little step that she can stand on and play (and splash)
Practicing our back floats!

Squealing after Daddy throws her
Brrr - now it's cold!
After swimming we got ready and headed over to Grandma and Grandpa's house.  Dan and I have both been looking forward to watching Evelyn and Micah play with each other.
They had a blast - especially with this ball!
Learning to share...a task we aren't real good at yet!
Getting better!
Thanksgiving dinner!
 We always do our Christmas with the Gaines family while we are in Indiana for Thanksgiving - so after Thanksgiving dinner and naps, we settled down to open presents.
Evelyn was actually much happier about receiving this gift than the tears show in this picture! :-)
A second new doll!
Reading the book Aunt Kendra, Uncle Mike, and Micah got for her
She looooves this toy from Aunt Kendra, Uncle Mike, and Micah - she carries it around our house to play with it wherever she is...
Evelyn helping Grandpa open his gift from her
Finding packing peanuts for the first time!
Of course, we had to put her in the box with the peanuts...she was not enthused.
Yay - presents!
She got a third doll that has her own car seat...which Evelyn thought was her own rocking chair.  Little did she know, she was getting a real rocking chair from Grandma and Grandpa later!
Hello - Uncle Mike?
Another good Thanksgiving...Evelyn was tuckered out after a fun day of playing, running, present opening, and eating!
