The day after Thanksgiving

This was such a great day! We loved taking the kids around Texas A&M!
Ready to get going!

Breakfast at the hotel

Time with Papa

Walking campus

They have backhoes there!

Love this picture!
And we finally made it to the Century Tree where Jory and I got engaged. Jory said he really loved seeing the children there. These were special moments.

Family picture at the bench where Jory proposed.

After a day of exploring and shopping we loaded up, had an early dinner and hit the road. We had a great weekend with the kids and their grandparents at A&M.

Thanksgiving Day

We drove to College Station on Thanksgiving morning. The Texas A&M/University of Texas game was at 7 and John and Jory had tickets. I didn't get a picture of the kids all loaded up for the drive (3 1/2 hours), but this is as soon as we arrived. The babies were so happy to see their grandparents!

We headed to Cracker Barrel for Thanksgiving dinner and Dee and Abby did some shopping while we waited for a table.
Abby had turkey for dinner and she loved it!

Aaron waiting patiently.
When we got back to the hotel we had play time for a bit in Dee and Papa's room. They had brought the kids these Reveille pillows that the kids absolutely adored!

We put some First Thanksgiving gear on Abby

This outfit says My First Thanksgiving. It was too small, but we put it on her to sleep in.
The boys headed out to the game and Dee and I watched it on TV while the kids slept.

Thanksgiving Weekend

I took such a ridiculous amount of pictures this weekend that I have to divide my Thanksgiving Post into several posts. This was actually the day before Thanksgiving. We were all ready to go out of town and found ourselves with a free day so I decided to take the kids to BassPro. They have Christmas things set up for children from now until Christmas.

Aaron wore his snowman pants and Christmas tractor shirt. He was very proud of the outfit! There were so many things to see...before we even got into the store!
Abby wasn't sure what all the commotion was about. But we had a nice time and we ran into my friend, Janice, and her two kids. The boys enjoyed the train set very much then we rode the Christmas Carousel and headed for lunch.
Daddy came home from work early and the kids enjoyed play time with him.
Then we hit the sack to rest up for our holiday weekend!

Feeling Blue

We had Christmas pictures taken in October and I couldn't resist taking this smocked dress that Kathy bought for Abby. I absolutely love it!!!!
