I'm back!!

Well, here it is December. Where has the year gone?? We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, with lots and lots of food and family. We had 26 family members stay with us this week, plus the extras who just came during the days to visit. On Thanksgiving Day we served 18 adults and 17 children. It was pretty hectic, but a ton of fun. A week before Thanksgiving, I promised Amanda that when all the cousins were here we would do a craft. So, we mixed up some sugar cookies and let them cut out and decorate sugar cookies. They all loved it and we got some great pictures.
This is also one of those rare times that cousins from all over the country are together, so here is the picture of all 18 Baker Grandchildren!! They range in age from 18 years to 3 weeks. I must say they are quite a group of kids, and I love every one of them! I was so proud of them this week, there were only very minor moments of tattle tales and bickering. Not too bad with this crew!
Well, I suppose I should go for now. It's time to get back to school work-not that I'm really that anxious to get started, but we've had 2 entire weeks off and I really don't want to fall too far behind! And I'm still catching up on laundry and other stuff from the last week. I do have a couple cards to show you that I managed to sneak in this week before it got too hectic. I'll save them for tomorrow. I hope all of you had as wonderful a time as we did this last week. It's nice to have the house to ourselves, though!

Isn't it great to have family fill your house during the holidays? The kids look like they had a blast making the cookies. I really like your Loads of Love card and the untraditional look of your other one.
