Thanksgiving in pictures.

Howdy y'all and happy December first!

How was your Thanksgiving? Did you eat lots of turkey? Green bean casserole? Pumpkin pie? We ate all of the above...with a whole of Mexican food thrown in there too. I just love my time with friends and family in Texas, always goes by too fast.
Here's our holiday highlights:
  • We almost gave away Cooper after the first flight due to emotional abuse towards his parents and everyone else on the plane.
  • The hubs decided that Austin, Texas has THE best BBQ (sorry Kansas City). As for where to go in Austin, you'll find Franklin's on every list but he loved Live Oak and there's no crazy 2-hour wait. 
  • Cooper learned that there are different type of balls. Ie: glass ornamental balls do not do they same thing as, say, rubber bouncy balls. 
  • Cooper established a bit of an attachment to his Nanna and proceeded to repeat her name over and over again for the entire trip. (Not to be confused with b'nana. TOTALLY different).
  • We observed that Cooper listens way, WAY, W-AAAAY better to daddy then he has ever listened to his mother. I am so thankful for a husband who is a great dad. This week I was reminded just how important dads are in a child's life. And for mom's sanity.
 Trimming Nanna's tree:
 He melts my heart. Most days:
 Kisses from Aunties!
 My sister Elaine and her boyfriend Ben. Aren't they the cutest?
 Cooper and my cousin, Ara. Ara is so darn good with him.
 Our family matriarch and birthday girl, Grandma Betty.
You will be happy to know that Coop slept the whole flight back to Denver. And also, when Jeff pulled the car around at the airpot he had my favorite Christmas tunes blaring.

Let it begin!
THE most magical time of the year!
