Well, it has been several weeks since I have posted anything, and to be honest, it is NOT due to a lack of things going on. We have actually been swamped with everything going on in life right now... another post all in itself.
The week of Thanksgiving was so much fun! We started Wednesday afternoon, making our way to Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport...not nearly as crowded as we expected. Looks like the economy IS taking toll on the airline industry. We arrived in DFW later that evening, had a great dinner with Burson, Blair and our precious nephews! Then off to Henrietta to see Meme and Gramps! We spent the next couple of days eating, eating and more eating; lots of visiting, movies, and good quality family time. Then it was back to Dallas to see Cooper and Mason again and off the Parkers for Thanksgiving #2! This time it was filled with eating, eating, football, movies, football, and lots of catching up with all my sisters and Mom and Dad! Then, back to the airport and life in Atlanta started all over again. It was a whirlwind of a trip, but always lots of fun. Unfortunately, we were so relaxed and busy at the same time, I did not get ANY pictures!! Well, I will take double the amount at Christmas.
This past weekend, we made the quick drive out to Aiken, SC to visit Blake's aunt and uncle, cousin and their kiddos. It was great! We relaxed some more, ate some more and spent a lot of time playing with the girls. Miranda (Blake's cousin) has 2 precious daughters, Haley, 3 and Reese, 18 months... and is expecting another one in May. Haley and I spent most of the time coloring in her Minnie Mouse coloring book, playing hide-and-go-seek, and shopping in the "fake store." We also went to a horse farm to feed the horses and went to the Christmas performance at Aunt Vickie and Uncle Ron's church. It is so refreshing to be around family and we really feel so close to all of them. Thanks for having us, Vic and Ron! It was such a great weekend.
Now that December is here, I can hardly believe it! It definitely came quick this year! I am not prepared at all!!! For now, enjoy the pics of Haley and Reese and our weekend in Aiken!
