Thanks-Christmas 2007!

As some of you know, for the last three years, the Rankin girls, their families, and their parents have been getting together for what is now known in our family as Thanks-Christmas. As more of us got married and moved out of state, it become important to find a time to reserve for us to spend a couple of days together for some QT, a good meal or two, and to celebrate both Christmas and Thanksgiving. So, we now do our Thanksgiving and Christmas all wrapped up in one, hosted by someone different each year. Here are some pictures from 2007's Thanks-Christmas celebration...complete with "Gobble til You Wobble" t-shirts Karen had made for us this year. This year's celebration was hosted by Kori and Ben at their home in Indiana.

There are more pix....but this is all I had the patience to upload tonight. I'll do more later....I promise!

Kori and Ben scored big time with this little tutu (sp??) for Ella. I can't decide which was the best part though? When she bowed after she put it on, or when she got stuck inbetween some things later on because it was so big!

Anna looking so pretty with her new blue vest.

Nick and I are just sure that this was Scott's favorite gift! (yes, we got it for him!)

All of us girls...with our "Gobble til You Wobble" t-shirts on.

Jacob hanging out with Grandma Cooper...and laughing at his dad on the couch, I think.

Ella getting comforted after one of the many times she accidentally got hurt this weekend!

A long lost Rankin sister???

I was flipping through the channels the other day and caught a re-run of Oprah. They were showing some makeovers. What caught my eye was this girl! I think she might be a long, lost sister or something!!!
