Our Thanksgiving feast was so wonderfully chaotic that I didn't get a chance to snap a single photo of it. But earlier that day, we piled into a caravan of cars and headed to the Duke Gardens so the girls could get some wiggles out. (Our Turkey Day entourage consisted of the same group from our recent adventures in the Blue Ridge Mountains.)
Thanks to my brother-in-law, Christo, for taking the above family photo, which may be the first time the four of us have appeared in a photo together since the day we brought Nora home from the hospital. The fact that we didn't get a single shot with everyone looking at the camera speaks to this crazy phase of life...
I had a great time chasing the littles around to get a photo of each on such a happy day. I hope your celebration was equally lively!
