Thanksgiving in College Station

 We were so happy to host Thanksgiving in College Station this year! We had such a great time seeing everyone! On Wednesday, we all met at our land in Giddings for a little outdoor fun.  It was such a beautiful day!

Jackson loved the cows!

The grandkids ready for a ride in the jeep! Hadley had an ear infection and was pretty miserable for a couple of days. Can you tell?

On Thursday, we had a delicious Thanksgiving lunch with way too much food, of course.

Cooper insisted on having this huge turkey leg. Ha!

All the grandkids in their Thanksgiving gear. (Don't mind the princess.  Some battles aren't worth fighting.)
 Next, we loaded up and headed to Kyle field to cheer on the Ags.  We won't talk about how that ended.

Unfortunately, Hadley and I (and the camera) didn't make it to Abilene for the Chambers Thanksgiving.  We stayed and went to the doctor and recovered.  But, I heard rumors that there was a giant inflatable turkey waiting on Cooper and Chad when they got there.  They had a ton of fun going to Cross Cut and the zoo and playing with cousins.  Can't wait to see you all soon!
Never too sick to be a princess.

Despite a little sickness, it was a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We have so much to be thankful for, and have been blessed greatly. 

Thanksgiving Feast!

The week before Thanksgiving Chad, Hadley, and I attended Cooper's Thanksgiving feast at his school.  He was SO excited to perform all of his songs and his special prayer for us.  He knew them all perfectly (of course).  He was so proud of his Indian costume and of the table decorations he had made for our table.  We loved getting to watch him interact with all his friends.

This little turkey loved getting to feast with the big kids.  She was so proud of her brother.
