giving thanks for family


We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at the Butlers in Monticello this year. We played basketball, Laura & I shopped, Shane, Randy & the boys rode the four-wheelers, celebrated Laura's birthday, the whole family played gestures... we watched Quinn, Nate, Andy & Chad wrestle at the Alumuni wrestling matches, caught up with old friends, ate lots of food and thoroughly enjoyed everyones company.

papa spent a lot of quality time with the kids :)



Laura (and Addy) on her birthday! Shannon hosted a birthday party providing nine homemade pies!

Alumni Wrestling matches



found this on my camera and what can I say... a picture is worth a thousand words!

Thanks to Laura, Grandma Butler and Shannon for a delicious Thanksgiving meal!

so good to see you! you look so fantastic for just having a baby. kyle even commented on that! :) i was thinking that since kyle and andy are practically like brothers, we can surely be SIL's, yeah? :)

We really enjoyed all the pics of everyone and by the way, who won the wrestling matches?
