The kids had fun playing around on scooters and running all over the place.
We have an alley in back of our house, so it's perfect for riding bikes and scooters!
We also have 2 empty lots on either side of us. One has lots of trees to climb.
Look at Hudson - he wants to be one of the big boys so bad.
Zach - he was the birthday boy too.
Miss Grace. She literally posed like this for me all on her own.
After awhile, the guys took all of the kiddos to the park so that JR could sleep in peace.
We made our way over to my in-laws house a little later for Thanksgiving lunch.
Uncle Houston and John Robert
Mammee and JR - she loves her baby boy.
It's party pic time!
Austin and Katie Belle (I love it that Hudson calls her Katie Belle now)
A rare pic of the hubby and I.
My brudder and me
The little kids table - Hudson's going to town on those mashed potatoes!
One of the adult tables
There's always some rough housing......
Cousin Sawyer is usually the leader of the pack. The little kids love it!
Uncle kept an eye on John Robert - "he's too yiddle for dat."
Since it was Zach's birthday - my MIL bought this darling turkey cupcake cake.
How cute is that??
Hudson enjoyed his cupcake for sure....the icing at least.
Grace put on a show for us - this girl is hilarious. Love her. Sassy pants.
Trey, Gran-Gran and John Robert
Our little turkey
After lunch - Trey and I dumped off the boys with my parents for their naps and we headed off to watch the Cowboys beat the Dolphins!! We have season tickets, but this was my first game of the season.
So much fun! And they won.
On Friday - we went out to Trey's aunt and uncle's ranch. It's become a Thanksgiving weekend tradition and we love it. Hudson adores hanging out with all of the kiddos and exploring the ranch.
This year, Jeff built a swing in one of the barns for the
Even Austin had a go on the swing. Look at everyone coaching him.
I think he was a yiddle nervous. It's higher than it looks.
I did it too and I was nervous!
Ashley and JR - I'm thinking babysitter pretty soon, aren't you???
Sweet Caroline and Sarah with JR
After lunch, we took the Ranger out to look at the property for a bit.
Hudson loves to see the cows and goats.
The kid is totally over the camera. Such a boy.
Family photo! I was sad that it was too cold and windy for JR to join us.
Lots of goats. And this was Austin's 2nd nervous moment of the day. The goats will literally jump up into the Ranger. I thought Austin might have a heart attack after I told him this. The 3rd nervous moment of the day came when a bull started running towards us. Austin was yelling at Trey to "GOOOOOOO!"
And then he decided to take matters into his own hands and drive us all himself.
It was a great day and a great Thanksgiving!! Hope you all had a wonderful one as well.
I'm still in the process of decorating for Christmas. The tree is up though.
And Jolly the elf made his debut this year. More on that later.
Have a good week, peeps!
