If there was one thing to be thankful for.. (you know besides Everleigh, Chad and our overall health and happiness ;) is how incredibly blessed we are to have such wonderful FAMILY! I love that no matter how much time passes between visits, the minute we get together again, it feels like no time has passed at all. With technology playing such a huge part in our lives.. FaceTime allowing my parents to be a part of Everleigh's day-to-day life (practically).. the hundreds of miles between us feels like nothing. And now that I have such a great little travel buddy, the hour and a half flight back home is a breeze!
We were sad to leave Dad behind to work the days leading up to (and the days following) Thanksgiving.. but I was glad to get Everleigh back to her cousins for some good 'ol quality chaos. ;)
Fair warning.. this post is LONG.. and most of the pictures were from my Iphone... (i.e. pretty crappy quality).. but now that you've been warned.. ENJOY! ;)
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
Mommy's little expert traveler. :)
We may not get to head down to south Texas very often to see my family.. but when we do, it's always a party with these cheeseballs. :) Arriving first thing on Wednesday morning, Addie and Everleigh wasted no time making up for lost cousin time. They absolutely LOVE each other!
Sweet giggling cousins :)
Huggin' it out. :)
Finally making it to my parents office.. Where Andrew (and Aunt Christi) met us :)
Hello in there.. :)
Three Musketeers ;)
Andrew showing Everleigh his toys.. and Everleigh showing Andrew new tricks. :)
Thanksgiving Breakfast the following morning :)
Damn near impossible to get a picture with ALL THREE looking the same direction. ;)
Oh but we tried though..
Hmmm.. I wonder if I can get my nails down while I'm here..
This nail color just isn't working for me.. ;)
Everleigh...more interested in her pancake..
Well.. .they're all looking in the same direction!
If I don't look at them taking these pictures..
maybe they will let me eat my dang pancake in PEACE! ;)
Time to take a ride around the house before Thanksgiving lunch! ;)
Grandpa... Everleigh's Chauffeur ;)
Why hello there little cousin.. ;)
Like how she's holding on to the steering wheel.. ;)
What the heck, GRANDPA?!
Almost Turkey time!
Grandpa playing his version of "peek a boo"..
She was quite entertained! ;)
But caught on quickly.. ;)
Being silly with Addie :)
Aaaannnd... MORE eating!
And sharing.. ;)
And eating some more..
With a scrunchy face for good measure. ;)
Thanksgiving dinner time tease with Addie's play food. ;)
Seriously pooped on our flight back home on Sunday morning. :)
That's a WRAP!
