Thanksgiving 2013

Thanksgiving was in Huntsville this year and it was nice to have all of my side of the family together.  We started Thanksgiving morning by running in a 5K Thanksgiving Turkey Trot.  Will and I, Preston,  Julian and Sarah all got up early to brave the freezing temps to run 3. something miles.  We had a blast! It was actually a really nice way to start the day and made eating all the delicious, high calorie food not seem so bad. :)  We spent the rest of the day eating and decorating Mamaw's Christmas tree. Later in the week we went to visit Santa and play in the "snow!"  We also had a spend the night party at Sarah's with all the kids and watched movies and decorated christmas cookies.  I love this holiday!!

Lively is Here!

Today our new niece was born!  The kids (and us too!) were so excited to go to the hospital and meet her.  She arrived six weeks earlier than planned, but is doing great!

Helping at the Farm

Went to visit Pops and Jack today and the kids got to help take feed to the cows.  This meant using the Bob Cat (or "bobby" cat- if you're talking to Tripp).  They, of course, had a blast!  We collected some pecan afterwards and enjoyed being out in the fall weather.

Fall Leaves

Went out to rake up some leaves today, and the kids just could not help themselves.  Can't say I blame them... :)

Ann Wilson's Birthday Party

We traveled to Huntsville for the weekend to celebrate Ann Wilson turning four.  She had a birthday party at the park, and the kids had a ball!! Makes me so happy we live close enough to celebrate these things. :)
