Oh what wonderfully,amazing family time!!!

We were lucky this time we got to fly. Twelve hours in a car with a 2 year old and a 4 year old can be pretty tough. It is amazing you can be there in less than 2 hours in a plane. The boys really like to fly although Cooper was asleep before we ever left the ground.

We had a little guitar hero competition.

Cooper got to see "Ho Ho" . He went right to him.

We met up with Ben, Mamas and little David to have a meal with Mama's family.

Brian celebrated his 14th birthday while we were there. It is hard to believe 14 years have passed.

Laura's family was passing around a virus so we didn't get to spend much time with them.
Of course we watched the Cowboys while we were there. You can't spend a weekend with my family without watching football!!!

The weather was so mild, you could wear flip flops and short sleeves the first few days.

Mother had most of our Thanksgiving meal catered, so we didn't end up in the kitchen all day. We just prepared a few casseroles. It was really nice. We had more time to visit one another.
Thomas loves to cook so meme let him help.

This of course is one of my favorites. We took pictures with our mom and dad too, but I do not have them on my camera. I think Laura and Mama have them.

What an awesome week we have had. My whole family got to go to Texas for the holiday and it was wonderful as always. There seems to never be enough time. I am really never ready to go home. I guess I am ready to get back into a routine, but routine aint all it's cracked up to be!!! My sissy from Chicago got to come in also. We really have a good time together. I have got to get back to Chicago really soon. Blessings Memaw Barbie
