We had a wonderful Thanksgiving! As always, we joined everyone (including my parents) at the McWhorter family farm. It has become a yearly tradition, for both of our families, that we all love!

This blue eyed boy enjoyed his very 1st Thanksgiving and was snuggled by anyone that could get their hands on him. He was fought over quite a bit throughout the day! :)

The weather was kind of cold, but beautiful! The kids are at the perfect age where we just let them run free. It's nice not having to keep an eye on them every second.

Uncle Kap took the kids on lots of Rhino rides.

It only goes one speed...FAST! :)

3 generations.

We were also able to get some great family pics for Nanny and PawPaw.

Once it got dark, we went back inside for more playtime and of course more eating!

Such a great day!

We are so thankful that we live so close to both of our families and that they both love one another! That is something that we will never take for granted!

The Weekend

Conn left on Thursday to go hunting with some of his best friends. I think this is their 5th year for the annual "Huntereeno" hunting trip. They go to the McWhorter family farm and hunt until Sat. My dad goes and does all of the cooking. The guys look SO forward to it every year. All of us wives joke that they are like kids on Christmas morning waiting all year for this trip to arrive! Ha!

It was a good year for Conn. He came home with 3 deer!

We took family pics on Sat. We even got some really cute ones. But, man, was it tough getting them! There were times I didn't think some of us would make it out alive! Ha!

Conn was actually off today. It was so nice having him home! We did nothing but relax and play outside! You would never know that it was the middle of November! The girls even set up a lemonade stand! Yep, we must live in Houston!

So blessed to have a relaxing weekend with nothing on the calendar. We don't get those very often! We loved having our daddy home, too! Now, it's back to the daily grind of making lunches, getting clothes ready, and doing homework! :)

Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!

Then and Now

As you can see from a couple of posts back, Lily dressed up as bumble bee for Halloween. When she had picked out the costume, I had totally forgotten that she had already been a bumble bee once before.

Oh.My.Goodness. Check out that chunky little 3 month old? How is that possibly the same little girl...7 years later?! Love!!!!
