Here's Gran-Gran cooking up some goodness for us all! And please notice my wonderful sister-in-law, Sheila in the background pouring a glass of wine. She knows how to handle this family. :)
The big boys entertained themselves with this game....which I forgot the name of.
While my sweet angel read books and was quiet as a mouse the whole evening...
HA! You didn't really believe that, did you?? If you did, you haven't been reading my blog too long. Case in point. Katie Belle wanted a picture with Hudson. This is how that worked out.
Grace and Hudson had their very own little table in the study. Getting them both to look at the camera was impossible though. These two were adorable together.
They're only 6 weeks apart and they had so much fun.
They loved these scooters that Gran Gran and Grandaddy gave them. They zoomed around the house all night long...never far from each other. So cute!
We had a wonderful meal - turkey, pork tenderloins, corn casserole, stuffing, green beans, rolls, etc... We all stuffed ourselves and then went home to bed.
On Thursday, the 3 brothers: Brent, Houston and Trey decided to bring back the "BRO BOWL" tradition. They used to play a "friendly" game of football every Thanksgiving morning and affectionately dubbed it the Bro Bowl. So.....2010 was the Bro Bowl comeback.
They decided to involve some of the kids as well. Trey and Sawyer teamed up, Brent and Zach (Zap & Zip) and Houston and Hagen. To say that it was FREEZING on Thursday morning is an understatement. It was frigid!! We were all bundled up. Hudson insisted on walking to the park first.
Please notice the child does not have on a coat. It was 36 degrees. He REFUSED to put one on. From here forward - mark my words, he will not be going outside without a coat. I wasn't in the mood to fight the battle on Thanksgiving so I let it go. BUT, I will not let it go again.
He finally realized there was something going on over on the soccer fields. So...he took off running towards Gran Gran!
Before he made it to Gran Gran though, he decided to join the football game. Down. Set. HUT.
Like any good quarterback, he's watching the play. Good job, buddy!
Kathryn and I finally decided it was way too cold for the little ones, so we sat in the heated car for the rest of the game.
Hudson, Kathy and Grace cheering for the boys!
We were pretty lazy for the rest of Thursday.
We enjoyed leftovers, watched the Cowboy game and hung out.
On Friday, we made our annual trip out to Trey's aunt and uncle's ranch. The kids have so much fun out there! It's like their own personal playground. Alan and Lee are so generous to have us all out.
They made this horse walker into a swing set. And they even had a baby swing for Hudson.
He loved it!!! I thought he might get dizzy go round n round. But, nope. It was hit!
Grace rode in Hagen's lap for a little while until Hudson gave her a turn in the baby seat. That went over real well....as you can imagine.
We played on 4-wheelers
We explored the creek
We played in the tree house
We rode scooters some more...
Safety first.... the kid who hates to wear hats was obsessed with this helmet.
The kids played in the rocks
Caleb and Hudson had fun with this dump truck
And that takes care of the last few days with the Nevilles! Hope you all had a good Turkey Day too!!
It's hard to believe that it's almost December.
Have you decorated for Christmas yet??? More to come on that.
