Hopped On Over to Mississippi

For Thanksgiving that is. And it was great. It's been a while since we've seen this side of the gets crazy huh!!

But, boy was it fun. We did a lot of eatin' and sleepin' and playin'.

The travels were good....movies and sleepy babies help a lot. Two slept, two watched "The Santa Claus". Robert and I chatted...I think. I can't remember. But we talked about something. :-)

Once we got there Rhodes was in heaven because he did a lot of this:

and this:

and this:

He was soaking up all the love!! And there was a lot to go around!! Don't get me wrong. I love holding little man. But it was nice to have my hands free for some of the day - to do some eatin'!!!

Oh wait...dessert comes last. My bad. It was just so temping with all my favorites!! Caramel cake, strawberry cake, pound cake, and chocolate pecan pie. did they know those were all my cravings?!?!

Eating...and eat we did!

And to burn off the 5,000 calories well each took in, we played-played-played outside.

I think the first words out of my mouth last Thursday morning {in an raspy-early morning-just-opened-my-eyes type of voice} were, ..."we need to take a lot of riding toys...the kids will love the cul-de-sac to ride in all afternoon!"

What is it about riding in the road (safe, adult supervised road) that is so fun for kids.

It was a BEA-UTIFUL day in Mississippi.

And we played a little ball too. Landon was so sweet to his cousin Kenzie!! She and Lillian are only a few weeks apart.....Kenzie was delightful to be around!!!!!

We had SO much fun visiting with everyone in Mississippi! Hopefully it won't be so long before we see each other again!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Week!!!!

Here is Kenzie talking and singing to Rhodes - she was TOO cute with him!!!


  1. that strawberry cake is calling my name.

  2. So cute that Kenzie is "multi-tasking." Love that she's picking her nose, singing and making sure the passie stays in all at the same time. Too funny.


If you don't have anything nice to say, then, please don't say anything at all! THANKS!
