before i finish the year in an amazing failing manner on this blog, i wanted to post a few things!
time may seem fleeting these days, but i never want to forget the experiences i have with family--on both sides.
so i'm posting the pictures that we took during our thanksgiving-break in central texas.
our first stop is at Papa & Nana's where they have all sorts of fun outside as well as inside. this year the boys asked to go 'hunting' with their daddy and at this point in their lives, i don't think either one of them really felt like huntin' was for them. they both were pretty useless hunters: one napped the whole time & the other turned out to be pacifist warning us that he wouldn't let us know if he saw a deer.
but tricycles and wood gathering? yep. all the way.
nana got them each a knit hat at a handmade market in town. they were in love with the pompoms!
we walked. we explored. we took pictures. it was pretty much awesome. just us 5.
he hit his target, too! it's been a while since he was able to claim a prize so I was uber proud of him!
look at us. all country.
but the kids could! they rode our shoulders til we couldn't stand up straight any longer.
and then it was time to feast! while the women got food ready, the men played games & kept busy (duh, what else are they supposed to do?) look at those delicious rolls!
afterwards, we all crashed into our comas and ate second helpings.
the kids stayed busy with all the crafts Moomie brough them. we painted ornaments, colored, and cut anything Christmas.
check out the most adorable felt tree she made for the kids! i love it and will be sad to take it down in january....
...and the rest of that weekend? my sisters came to help me with a market for ShopWitty. we did fairly well for being our first 3-day market. but we. were. exhausted!
new experience. new contacts. new memories! how was your thanksgiving?
have a blessed holiday you guys! my prayer is that christ may be the center of you & your home this season!
