We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday of the year. It seems to have somehow avoided becoming overly commercialized and is just about being with family, eating good food, and being thankful for all that God has blessed us with. I love it!
We were able to spend Thanksgiving with Jeremy's family this year. I somehow managed to not bring my camera - sorry. It was wonderful though. Alison took our family pictures for us (pictured at the top of the blog) and did an absolutely amazing job! We loved spending the day with Jeremy's family and eating way too much good food!
On Friday we headed up to Oklahoma to my Grandma and Grandpa Adams' farm. My mom and step dad came down from Kansas and met us there. We had a second Thanksgiving on Friday with family there. We were especially lucky to meet my new cousin, Bryce. He is 8 years old and was just adopted by my Aunt Iva and Uncle Cole. Kirsten and him hit it off immediately. He has been in foster care his whole life and said that he could hardly believe that he had a real cousin! They spent most of the day together.
On Saturday we headed up to the Oklahoma Science Museum. It was seriously the best museum I have ever been in. We spent five hours there and hardly did half of the museum. I am dying to go back.

Katie had a great time too! There was a huge kids area that was sectioned off where she could just run around and play. It was great until she found the water tables an got soaked!
With all of the things we did, I think the highlight was riding the Segway. We all got to do it, and wanted to do it again! Kirsten went first.
She was so brave and had so much fun!
There was no way to keep Jeremy off. He has wanted to do one of these for years!
My brave little astronaut.
Before we came home Saturday night, Kirsten and my mom built and decorated a gingerbread house. Kirsten was ecstatic, she has been begging to do one for weeks. Would you believe that it even survived the four hour car ride home?!
