Thanksgiving Family Fun

I got to spend Thanksgiving with my brother and his family. It was a lot of fun and nice to have some down time where I didn't have to do anything. I spent most of the time playing with/spoiling (depending on who you are asking) my nieces. They are so big now! Bug likes to ask questions and discuss all the important things that adults never think about but are of utmost importance to three year-olds. Baby Bee doesn't talk yet, but that is because she has Bug and everyone else to talk for her. But she always knows exactly what is going on and is very good at expressing her displeasure should it not be what she wants going on. We had an adventure on Friday getting a gargantuan Christmas tree for their house. They also found a fun train to go under the Christmas tree that delighted the girls. Here are some pictures of the girls being themselves. In between the games of Can't Catch Me and You Stole My Chair which consisted of me chasing them and throwing them in the air, which wore me out, but didn't seem to phase them.

Bug giving me her best 'cheese' face.

Funny faces for the camera.

A more contemplative moment between funny faces.

Baby Bee gave this coy face every time I took the camera out. She definitely knows a secret she isn't telling.

The coy look through safety glasses.

Someone wants a turn behind the camera.

Their hugs always look like someone is getting strangled.

Showing their excitement over the Christmas tree and train.

More celebrating about the tree and train.

See what I mean about the strangle hugs?

Those pictures are awesome, I think we will have to steal them. Thanks for putting up with us :). Bug was so sad after you left on Saturday. She kept saying that she wanted to play "Chase Me" with Scully.

Looks like fun! I can't believe how big the girls are getting! They are so lucky to have you for an aunt.
