Back to work

It's back to work for me tomorrow. I was off the last week and had a great holiday with my family. I am kinda sad Christmas is over but also looking forward to the new year. I ended my Christmas vaca with a fun weekend.

Friday we decided to do some after Christmas shopping. Our brother had called us and asked us to watch Lillie and Parker for him while he went to the deer lease so we had two extra little people with us.

We all piled into my car and started our day.






Before we started shopping we decided to get our bellies full. We had some yummy Mexican food.




After eating we went to a couple of stores. We ended up leaving the mall because it was so crowded and the lines in each store we went to were so long. We were out numbered and decided leaving the mall before anyone had a break down was probably a good idea.




Parker and I hanging out in the car while mom and Yaya ran into a store.




We decided to check out Hobby Lobby before we went home. That store was much better...not crowded at all. After Hobby Lobby we headed home. We decided to have a sleep over at our moms so the kids could play.














Saturday afternoon we decided to run back to the mall and out to eat. Some how we talked my dad into going with us. We went to a couple of stores then out to eat. It was a fun afternoon with the family.









Ace was being silly here and not wanting to take a pic.










Sunday was a lazy day and much needed. The boys raked the leaves while I did laundry and got ready for the week.










I will hopefully be posting about our Christmas fun later this week.

Thanksgiving Weekend

Thursday after we had our Thanksgiving us girls headed to our aunts for our annual weekend trip.

Every year we spend the weekend after Thanksgiving with her and start our Christmas shopping.




We are never in a hurry and always just go with the flow. We stay up late and sleep in. We enjoy yummy leftovers from Thanksgiving. We always have fun! I love that we have this tradition.




We ended up leaving Thursday after our thanksgiving. We all had our bags packed so once the boys left for the deer lease we were able to leave to.






Friday Chelsea and the kids met us for lunch and joined us for a little while.













We ended up going to Grapevine Mills and it was so crowded! We took our time and had a successful day. We called it a day, even though we didn't get to all the stores we wanted to.

















Aydrie was worn out Friday night.





Saturday we headed back to the same mall to go to the stores we didn't get to the day before. Saturday was not crowded at all! It was a better day!



















We decided to start our day with lunch at The Rainforest. Ace and Aydrie really enjoyed it!















This year Ace didn't want to take a picture with Santa. He was fine just walking by him and seeing him from far away. Maybe next year will be different. He is a mess!

It was once again a fun weekend!!

Thanksgiving Week

I started my Thanksgiving break the day before Thanksgiving. I decide to take off last minute to stay at home with the kids and relax since I knew we would be busy the rest of the week.

We got up and this little boy helped me with breakfast. He loves making the biscuits.




We got done with breakfast and Yaya called us and invited us to go with her to a couple of stores. We of course said we would go, so my relaxing day was no more.




We wore this little boy out!




During the week of Thanksgiving we dog sat Adams brothers dog. I am sure this little dog was so happy to go home! Aydrie and Ace had fun with him.








Thanksgiving morning we watch the parade and cooked our yummy food for the day.

Y
We had lunch at Adams parents and then went to my parents. I did so bad at taking pictures and only got a few and all from my phone. I am really bad at leaving my good camera behind these days.















































It was another great Thanksgiving with the family.

Thanksgiving take One


The Sunday before Thanksgiving we had Thanksgiving with our dads side of the family.  It almost got cancelled because of the weather. They were calling for ice but it held off and we never saw any.  It was so cold.  We all had to stay inside.

We had a fun day with the family and lots of good food!

Here are some pics from the day.

It was a great day!
