we had a great Thanksgiving in Michigan with Mike's family!
it was freezing cold but on Thanksgiving day, it starting snowing and flurried all day!
perfect for little ones to watch from the windows and build a tiny snowman.
it was a great week and we can't wait to go back :)

sunrise comes late over the lake so we play by the fire and enjoy it!
we hung out in pjs for half the day...sign of a good holiday ;)
but we'd eventually get dressed (well, at least coats over our pjs) and went out to play in the snow!
