Dallas Thanksgiving

Another whirlwind start to the holiday season! Thanksgiving was filled with busy moving and lots o' eatin. I'm so thankful Matthew and I could make the 12 hour drive to Dallas (and thankful we made it back home safely) to meet my new nephew and chill with my old nephew, well he's not quite two yet...Oh and see some other family members that are barely pictured here because these boys were the focus of everyone's attention. 

Big brother Easton was adorable with little Tanner. He kept giving him kisses and whenever he'd cry, Easton would say... "uh oh, baby".  He's working on sentence completion  right now.
Tanner looks just like Easton did- sweet, cute, and edible.
I got a little practice of my own while I was there. Man am I glad we are just starting with one child at a time!
I couldn't love him more. I wish we lived closer!
We all took Easton to the Gaylord Hotel for the "Ice" exhibit. The theme this year was Madagascar. It really is amazing what they can do with large colored blocks of ice. I didn't take any pics of the theme-ice sculptures because I wanted to watch Easton's face the whole time. :)
They keep the exhibit tent at 9 degrees, so parkas had to be part of the deal! 
This was the only part of the show that wasn't colored- A scene of baby Jesus in the manger. I  loved explaining the scene to Easton.
This is my favorite pic- Mommy and Easton thankful for each other.
Easton looked a bit confused, but I think he enjoyed the slide. Is it weird that I liked the slide too?

I had been to the Gaylord in Nashville, but the one in Dallas was pretty incredible!
I love this pic of uncle Matthew and Easton. He was fascinated with Matthew's whiskers and also enjoy putting his finger in his nose right before putting it in Matthew's ear.... I waited to tell Matthew about the nose picking until Easton came down.

Uncle Matt was rocking the No shave-Movember. If Easton didn't look so happy, Matt might look like a sketchy man named Juan stealing a child. Love you uncle Matt! 

Tanner displayed how we all felt by the end of the weekend. ... Pooped. I don't think the Coors Lite had anything to do with his facial expression though. Let's hope not. 
It was finally time on the way home.... Christmas music with a gingerbread latte!!! Matthew and I know how to make a long car ride go by fast. I am so ready to decorate and get in the Christmas spirit now!!! 30 days and counting!



How could you not be thankful for laughter?  So much to give thanks for in this world. We don't even have to look hard.   Happy Thanksgiving!
