thanksgiving weekend.

This year, Blake and I spent half of the holiday with my family and the other half with his family. In the morning/early afternoon we were in New Braunfels with my parents, grandparents, and Aunt and Uncle (at their house.)  Then, in the late afternoon/evening we were in Austin with Blake's family at his parents' house.  Lucky for us, our parents live close to each other so after the actual holiday it's easy to bounce back and forth between the two.  

The pictures above show Blake and I on our way to New Braunfels to get the festivities started!! 

Hmmm my dad isn't excited for Thanksgiving and family or anything... :) Too cute.

Below (left to right:) My dad, grandfather, & uncle. Each of them are so wonderful.

Here's what it's all about folks. FOOTBALL! Classic picture.

Blake and my grandfather, Daddy Billy.  This picture makes me smile and get a little teary eyed.  

Daddy Billy & I. 

My adorable mom!

The next few pictures are at Blake's parents' house.  Each year, the day after Thanksgiving, the family gets together to decorate the tree.  Merci is my nickname so they like for me to hang this "Merci" ornament. I love it!

Love this picture of my mother-in-law, Jennie! Cutecity.

Georgia (our niece) & Sonny (Blake's dad & my father-in-law.) Two peas in a pod. 

I did take some other pictures of my two sister-in-laws and my brother-in-law.  Unfortunately, they were either blurry or one person was always blurred.  I will work on getting stronger shots of each family member over Christmas for sure. So sorry Amy, Holly, & Carter! 

This little cutie was quite helpful with the ornament hanging this year.

Brodie was sleepy after all of this holiday excitement!

Blake all cozied up on the couch after the tree was finished.

The Saturday after Thanksgiving we were at my parent's house.  Shame on me for not taking more pictures :(  I did, however, snap this picture of our little elf, Skippy, on the tree. This guy has been around for ages. You will notice the hat is torn off and overall he is kind of falling apart.  Rumor has it I used to chew on him as a kid ha!  Skippy has always been very loved in our family. 

What did you do for Turkey Day?  We cannot believe it's almost December already! Blake and I are obsessed (like most people) with Christmas!!! Not to mention it's Blake's birthday. Let the holiday/birthday spirit begin!!
