We celebrated Thanksgiving 2012 in Woodbury, MN with Dan's family!  His cousin Sarah and her husband Scott graciously hosted the crew for the day and us for overnight!  It was a blast - here are a few photo highlights!!

One week!

Born Saturday November 17, 2012 At 7:47 AM Charlie Scott Leffler was born at 8 lbs 9 oz and 21 inches long.

He came into this world fast! I will never forget talking to my sister at 5:30 AM and her telling me they were going to the hospital and she was 'hoping' this what it to then arrive and already be at a 7 and a little more than 2 hours later have a baby in her arms!!

Happy One Week Birthday Charlie!!

What? Staples?

Connor made his 2nd trip to the ER this year after falling at my parents on Saturday afternoon before Uncle Keith and Aunt Sarah's Illinois Wedding Reception.

The result? Three staples! They are behind his ear and he doesn't even seem to know they are there.

Here he is in the ER when they were still trying to get the bleeding to stop - poor buddy!

Take me out to the ballgame!

Connor attended I think a total of 5 MLB games in the month of July - he is one lucky little baseball fan!  On July 17th he ran into these crazy cats at the Brewer's game!  Connor was glad to see them and happily got his photo taken with them...even if they were cheering for the wrong team....

Family Reunion

The weekend of July 13th was our annual family gathering with Dan's side of the family.  We usually try to hit up a waterpark hotel and this year we requested everyone come our direction since we were going to have a new baby and what a blessing that was!  So the out of towners stayed at the Country Springs Hotel which was right down the road and a total blast.

On Friday night we had everyone here for some BBQ and Bounce House action:

Saturday was filled with fun at the indoor waterpark at County Springs Hotel! (not great pics - they are all from my phone)

This was Connor's favorite slide:

On Sunday the majority of the group enjoyed an awesome tailgate and then took in a Brewer's Game! 

 Did I mention it was a REALLY hot day and the seats were in the sun?!?
 So a few us of just enjoyed the cool of being at the house and not in the sun at the game!

 Kendall was showered with gifts this weekend with it being the first time the majority of the family was meeting her.  Her cousin Kailyn made her this awesome sign!

 I would have to say that all activities aside - I think everyone just enjoys being in one anothers company and lots of wonderful memories were made!  Here are just a few pics from 'hanging out' in the hotel.
