Weekend Wrap Up X 2

Well, we have some catching up to do from these past two weekends...

The first weekend of November we spent in Mount Vernon, Arkansas with John's family. We had a great time! We played board games, played football outside, watched football, did a lot of cooking and eating, made homemade hot cocoa mix, camped out in the living room, talked and laughed, went to church - all sorts of good things. We also shared an early Thanksgiving meal Saturday night and did our annual gift exchange. Each Thanksgiving, we all draw a name and get that person a little gift to kick off the Christmas season - it's a fun tradition. We took lots of pictures, but here are a few highlights...




This past weekend, some of my family came up to visit and help celebrate our nephew Seth's 7th birthday. My Dad, Kristin, Andrew, Noah, Hillary and Bronte all came up LATE Friday night. My step brother, Neil, his wife Amy, Seth and Alyssa live about a half hour from us so some people stayed with them and some stayed with us over the course of the weekend. The birthday party was Saturday afternoon at the Lego Education Center, so that was lots of fun. It was a nice weekend getting to hang out with everyone and visit. We all went to dinner Saturday night and made a trip to Toys R Us afterwards for Seth to spend his birthday money. What a crazy place that was - everyone is already Christmas shopping for toys I suppose. They all headed back to Odessa when we left for church Sunday morning. Again, we took tons of pictures, but here are a few of them...



This weekend we are here, but we have a packed calendar with all sort of things. So much going on this weekend, but fun times indeed!! Have a wonderful week. Thanksgiving is getting closer ~ Hooray, we can hardly wait!

Until we meet again...
