Thanksgiving in Abilene Pt. 2

The day after Thanksgiving, we hung out at the GG's house most of the day. Later that evening, we went to a couple Black Friday sales, before we went to my Aunt Jacki's house. My cousin Jennifer made it back from San Antonio that night w/ her 3 little boys, so all 8 great grandchildren were under 1 roof! I'm not sure if any other house could have handled 8 children 4 & under, except for Honey's! It was a lot of fun to get to watch the kids interact.

Paul took this video that I thought was so cute.

Raylee loved playing with all the cars.

Giving Ben a kiss!

Ben is exactly a month older than Raylee.

Brinn & Jack are about 2 months apart.

All 8 greats with Girl GG!

We had so much fun in Abilene! We are so blessed to have such a great family! Since we have been home, someone has wanted to be held all the time, so we have been spending our days like this:

Oh well, it goes too fast anyways! Hope everyone has a great day!

Thanksgiving in Abilene Pt. 1

This year we made the 16+ hour round trip drive to Abilene for Thanksgiving. Driving all day in the car w/ two little ones was nerve racking, but they did really well. I am so thankful that we were able to do it. We spent time with my Dad's side of the family, eating, visiting, and playing with cousins.

Here is our family pic. on Thanksgiving:

We went to my Aunt Jacki & Uncle Howard's house to eat for Thanksgiving. Our as their known to their 6 grandchildren "Honey & Poppa." We had a great afternoon full of food & family.

Grandpa putting Raylee on the power wheels. She loved it! Santa Claus may or may not be bringing Raylee something like this for Christmas. Aunt Amanda took this video of Raylee learning how to ride it.

Getting another ride! Raylee had her Grandpa running up & down the yard.

That night back at GG's, Brinn tried out the Bumbo...

**Edited to add: Going back through this post I noticed in the last picture that Mollie wasn't far away. Do you see her?

We had such a great Thanksgiving! I will post pictures from the rest of the trip tomorrow. 

Have a great day!

Adri's 3rd Birthday Party

Yesterday, our sweet niece Adrianna turned 3 years old. She had a beautiful princess party at Bounce Zone! We love it there, and this time Paul got to see Raylee in action. It was so much fun to celebrate Adri, and watch all the kids having fun. It is hard to believe in 3 short months, we will be celebrating Raylee's Birthday! Here are some pictures from the party.

Two Pictures

Friday is here again! Paul is working 10 hours tomorrow, but we have some fun stuff planned for this weekend. Only have two pictures to post today, and they are both from my cell phone. I need to keep my camera around more, or get a better camera on my cell phone, but I think you get the picture idea.

Up 1st is Raylee sitting in her chair holding her baby. She has started to play with "her" baby, more & more.

The next picture is Brinn working on tummy time. I know I post a lot of these, but I love the look of determination on her face. 

Hope you have a great weekend!
