Thanksgiving 2014

 This Thanksgiving we all gathered at Mom and Dad's house for an old-fashioned, Wei family get-together!  It was fun and a little crazy with 28 people.  We had everyone from the Wei side together except for Aimee, who had to work in IL.

The little ones reading with Great-Aunt Aline.
 Betty's old buddy Max is a good nap partner.
 Dressed up for some fun at the creek with the cousins - making snow "boats" to sail down the creek.  He reminded me of the Christmas Story boy - "Mom I can't put my arms down!" haha nah it wasn't that bad but still, he is very roly poly in all his layers.
Getting ready to head out to the Dranesville playground another day.  These guys love playing with Aspen.  Elijah even told me last month that he wanted to marry Aspen. 
 Getting a ride home.
 This was Saturday evening - it was really cold out that day, although dry at least.  We had to get the kids out of the house for a bit though so we all hit up a local park with a great playground.  
 I don't know why I can't ever resist making this face.
 These girls had a lot of fun playing together. I made them all model the shirt I made them together.
 This is a pretty good snapshot of their personalities ;)
 Pretty hair done by the aunties!   
 This time we got family pics done by a friend of Kate's, named June. She was great but again, our kids are very resistant to smiling at strangers with cameras. 

Grandma Wei with all her kids.
 All of Mom and Dad's grandkids.

We do a jumping pic everytime.  It's pretty dorky but fun.

 Our little Nielsons.
 Great shot of Mom and Dad. 
It was a fun and memorable Thanksgiving!  We sure love our family.  I didn't seem to have gotten any pics of our feast but it was amazing as always.
