So, we swap Thanksgiving and Christmas every other year between Jason's family in Iowa, and mine here in the Ft Worth area. This year, if you haven't noticed, Turkey Day is in Iowa!
After a crazy long day of traveling, and the obscene hour that we arrived, we tried to sleep a little late on Wednesday.
The boys had a blast playing in Grandma's basement for hours and hours. Which by the way, I have decided that is soooooo what we need! Do you think I can dig my own? Hmmmmmmm...
Papa Wilbur came over for a while and visited-All the boys played football out front (the weather was beautiful that day! It was 40 something degrees-but it didn't feel cold at all!
We made the first of many trips to the Shenandoah Wal-Mart for a few things, by the way, small town Wal-Marts are a lot nicer about returning things!
Thurs was a great Thanksgiving-kids played, we relaxed since lunch wasn't until 2 pm. It was a very non-stressful day. Papa, Uncle Jeff, Grandma Regina, Aunt Ronda, Uncle Curtis and their children-Colby, Heath, Hunter, and Haley-all came over. The boys love their cousins so much! Dinner was fantastic!
A couple hours after dinner, more family came over-Carla and Les, Holly and Troy (and their 2 boys), Laura and Brian with their sweet little new baby girl Mariska! (AKA Carson's new girlfriend) We all had dessert and all in all a great family day! When you only see these people once a year, you really cherish the time you do get with them!
We are so thankful to have such wonderful family on both mine and Jason's side!
Sorry for so many pics, this was the minimum I could choose!
