Thanksgiving at MawMaw's 2016

I didn't get a whole lot of pics, well only three of the whole day. This was the first time we have celebrated Thanksgiving at Maw Maw's house since Joe's grandfather's passing.  So I knew it would be a rough day. Lot's of precious memories here spent with him. Joe took the kids out to fish in the pond like he and his Pawpaw used to do. It was a bittersweet day of remembering and being thankful for the time we had with him.

Family Picture Out Takes 2016

Thanksgiving Morning before we left to spend the day with Joe's family, we did Christmas pictures with my brother and his family, my parents, my grandparents, Sia and us. My mom said Shades of Green and Denim. Here is just some out takes of our pictures that morning. Should have taken a video of it. LOL kids running around ready to be done and how many more do we have to take was ringing through the air. But alas we got them done.

No words brother 

Are we all looking at the camera and smiling?

Great Grandparent Love

Mimi and Papaw Wow Wow Love we are all totally laughing because Joe had said something hilarious as he usually does. 

The great Picture discussion

Hunting November 2016

We usually go on one family hunt a year and it's usually right around my birthday. We always have a good time telling stories around the campfire and eating s'mores. Hiking is a favorite in between hunts. Austin was the only one who got something this year, but we all had fun. Mia LOVES to go out in the stand with her daddy. Cora is still not sure if she likes the whole hunting thing. Hopefully it will grow on her. It's so nice to be away as a family for a few days with no interruptions. Thankful for family land that makes all this possible. Building memories with our kiddos.

Mini Texas Road Trip

We took a little road trip to celebrate my sweet nephew Oliver's 5th birthday.  On the way there we stopped at the Silo's to eat at the yummy food trucks and to walk around a bit. On the way out we grabbed some cupcakes from the Magnolia Bakery. I highly recommend Cup Of Joe Cupcake. After our little lunch break at the Silo's we headed toward Grapevine to meet my family to celebrate my nephew at Great Wolf Lodge. His request for his birthday. We had so much fun as a family sliding those slides and laughing. Mia was so brave doing all the big slides except for one because poor baby wasn't tall enough. It was a fun couple of days and nice to get away with our family.

Mommy and Corbin apparently the big boys are to cool for pics with characters. And I just noticed my ten year old is almost as tall as me.
