Christmas in Waco

We went to Waco on Friday morning the 22nd and were ready for a fun weekend with the cousins and Nana and Bop's house!
After a short stop at Bop's school, we headed to the house for lunch and to make cookies.
My helper!

The best part!

Trent's favorite!

Uncle Tag was in charge of sugar cookies with the kids once Caden and Kaki got there!

That night we had 2 awesome babysitters come while we had an adults night out!  We had dinner at George's, went to the Escape Room, and then drinks at Dichotomy.  It was such a fun night!

We were all excited about this!

Unfortunately we did not make it out!

On Saturday morning Gran and Poppa got there after breakfast, and the kids were anxiously waiting to open presents!

He loves his new hat!  And he's gotten to wear it a ton lately!

My cute baby on his first Christmas!

Aunt Katie hit the jackpot and got B all of the PJ Masks dress up clothes!

And G got a new big boy backpack from Nana and Bop!

Caden loved his Terrance Williams jersey from us!

Ready to cook lunch!

A beautiful day for the kids to play outside!

Happy Birthday Jesus!

Our annual tradition of acting out the Christmas story.

Baby Jesus just wanted to sit up!

And then Bennett wanted to be a sheep!

We played reindeer games once the kids went to bed that night!

And the boys won again!

We all headed home on Sunday morning, Christmas Eve, after a wonderful weekend together and lots of fun memories!

Thanksgiving Week

I'm so behind on blogging and am trying to play catch up! We were out of town the entire week of Thanksgiving and had a wonderful visit with our families. 

Getting off the bus on Friday afternoon and ready for a week off of school!  I can't remember why they had pajama day?!  But I love his I'm thankful for wreath and turkey hat!

Loaded down on Saturday morning with donuts and coffee and ready to go!

First stop, Waco for the Baylor football game!

This sweet one had fun with a babysitter at my parents' house!

Ready to cheer for our Bears!

These two cousins are quite the pair and have such a sweet relationship.

March of the Bears is always a highlight!

Game face!

Worn out!

Times two!

On Sunday morning we stopped for gas and road trip snacks before we headed to the ranch.

Nutella and pretzel sticks!

And powdered donuts!

Nap time on Sunday at the ranch.  I shared a room with Graham and Bennett for the week.  It had 3 twin beds.  Just about every single day for naps and most early mornings Bennett ended up in my twin bed with me...

Ready for the deer stand

Lots of snacks!

Gorgeous sunset!

Making cupcakes with Mimi

Another nap in my bed.  And taking up most of it!

His treasure that he found...a snake skin!

My deer stand buddies that afternoon

We sat in the closest stand to the house and walked back after about 45 minutes!

Sweet Parker!

Lots of playdoh time

And time with Mammaw

One way to play!

B and Uncle Brad

And with Aunt Kelsey!

Time for a fire

And s'mores!

My contribution to our dinner - green bean bundles!  Yummy!

My littlest turkey!

Watching the parade

And our only family pic for the day!

It was a miracle - a nap in his own bed!

On Friday morning we went to Waco and were ready for lots of fun with the cousins at Nana and Bop's house!

Sweet boy ended up with a double ear infection and was so miserable.  He had a rough weekend with not much sleeping or eating.

The kids table for our meal on Saturday

My yummy plate!  So many starches but so delicious!

He was trying so hard, but he just didn't feel good at all.

Lots of snuggles

We went and painted pottery that afternoon.

I decided to make a Christmas plate!

Finished product!

When you don't nap and are trying to keep up with your cousins!

Headed home on Sunday morning.  I was downing coffee and Bennett insisted on drinking some.  He said, "My like your coffee Mama!"

Little one perked up a bit when we got home.

And he loved the tree and lights.

Monday morning required more coffee and some hot chocolate for B.

Poor baby.

Waiting at the dr for an antibiotic shot.  He ended up at the ENT at the end of the week and was scheduled for tubes.

We have so much to be thankful for!
