Thanksgiving 2011

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! His faithful love endures forever!
Psalm 107:1

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving break with our families in Texas! It was relaxing and filled with lots of fun - exactly what we needed!

Our little family of three packed up and headed to Texas on Wednesday morning where we spent the week with Ben's parents (Grandma & Pops). Reid loves "trips to Texas" and is such a great traveler! Here he is watching his movies and wearing Mommy's sunglasses:

We arrived in Texas on Wednesday evening where we had a wonderful dinner with the Peterson's - even Uncle Jeff and his girlfriend Lizzie were in town! Then on Thursday (Thanksgiving Day), Grandma cooked a DELICIOUS traditional Thanksgiving meal. It was such a relaxing day of watching football... eating... sleeping... then eating some more! Here we are at Thanksgiving lunch: (Disclaimer: I had surgery the day before we headed to TX, so I definitely did not get out of sweat pants... nor did I fight my toddler to wear clothes. It was OK, though ... we never even left the house! Perfect!)

On Friday, we got to spend the day with my family (KK, Doc, Aunt NeeNee, & Uncle Craig) celebrating KK's 60th Birthday! We had a blast and I wish I had some more pics... but I do not. We did get to eat at Ben's FAVORITE burger place that just opened in downtown Fort Worth:

Ben was in heaven, to say the least! After lunch at In N Out, we headed to the Movie Tavern then back to KK and Doc's house to open presents and eat some more! It was such a fun day and evening with my family!

Another highlight from our Texas visit, was attending the Baylor /Texas Tech game at the Cowboy Stadium:

Such a blast! We saw a ton of old college friends and I have to say that it was so nice that BU WON! Here's Ben and I:

While we were busy at the game, Reid was busy entertaining the grandparents and aunts/uncles... He was showing off his stellar skills of double-fisting the apple products. Our child can use the ipad/iphone better than most adults!

All in all, it was a wonderful Thanksgiving break - we have so much to be thankful for and are looking forward to seeing all of the family again over Christmas!
