The one little bummer of the holidy is that it was REALLY COLD on Thanksgiving so I decided to stay at home with Elyse instead of joining Hubby in the annual Turkey Trot. We had access to a jogging stroller that even had a nice cover, but momma was a baby & decided to stay home and play with her baby girl instead! Hubby bundled up and headed out, and still had a good time with some of our friends from church!
|Yup...he's a goober!|
|Oh these two...love them so!|
|Elyse & her cousin Harper---these two are going to be trouble a year from now!|
|Our precious family...love them all so!|
|Elyse laid down after everyone had left--I think she was tired from missing her nap!|
|Seriously, could I be anymore blessed!|
Friday we took our time getting ready and then we met up with Hubby's parents for lunch. We dropped Elyse with them and then we went and did some late-Black Friday shopping. We managed to knock LOTS off of our list and still got some pretty good deals. We've still got 2 people to buy for and hoping to finish them up very soon!
After our shopping excursion, we headed over to Mamaw & Pappy's house for another Thanksgiving celebration. We had a fabulous meal and Elyse spent lots of time playing with her cousins Hunter & Jackson. Mamaw also read them a story called "The Sparkle Box" and gifted us a copy of our own to start a new holiday tradition. For any of you with children, or even if you don't have children, I would highly recommend picking up this book--it's a great reminder of the "Reason for the Season."

It was a crazy afternoon with so many people, but just another reminder of how blessed we are with so much wonderful family.
