New York Thanksgiving

To celebrate Thanksgiving, we headed to Grandma and Grandpa's house in New York. We were excited to spend time with everyone, especially since I cannot go back out there for quite some time. My doctor doesn't want me too far away! We had a good drive out there with Mairead sleeping the whole way. When we arrived, however, she thought it was time to get up and play, so she didn't go back to sleep until after 1 a.m.!

On Thanksgiving Day, we celebrated the holiday at Ryane, Dave, and Rachael's house. The girls (Ryane included!) had a great time playing. Rachael was great about sharing with Mairead and showing her how to use her toys. Mairead particularly liked Rachael's horses, and the girls had them all over the house.

On Friday, more family members were kind enough to come to an open house at Grandma and Grandpa's house so that we could all spend some time together. Everyone was very generous with their early Christmas gifts for Mairead, and even some gifts for Jack and Ben! We know we are so lucky to have a family who loves and supports us in so many ways. Thank you so much to everyone who came to visit!

Mairead loves her new toys- especially since they light up and make lots of fun sounds.

This one is from Thanksgiving night-- can you tell that the girls were ready for bed after a big turkey dinner? We all were!

This is one of my favorites from the weekend. It was great to see Mairead and Rachael spending time together and having so much fun.

There are many more pictures of our NY trip in the slideshow to the right of this post. Again, thanks to everyone who helped make it a great trip. We will be back to visit after Jack and Ben make their debut!
