Slumber Party 2

With Thanksgiving around the corner, I just have to add that I am so thankful for being able to spend time with my favorite brother, sister in law, and 19 mth old nephew while I was in TX.  They moved into their house about six months ago, and I am so proud of their happy life in the burbs'!  Life changes way too quickly, and the next thing I know I have missed out on too much of this little boy's life ..... living in Seattle :(

My sister in law outdid herself with hosting and even surprised me with waking up (we had a slumber party) to Chick-Fil-A breakfast.  Talk about a real treat!!

Here are some pictures from our weekend together!

Mexican food and margaritas - Arrie's favorite two things!

Trip to the park was a blast

Look at the joy on our faces

Three little models, haha

Feeding the ducks.
Notice Jordan changing the settings on his mack daddy camera .... I am planning on stealing it over Thanksgiving.  Shhh, don't tell.  It takes the most AMAZING pictures, the good old' Canon Rebel.


Griffin having fun on Opa's motorcycle

Making faces at his favorite auntie (me!!)

THEN,
Griffin spent the afternoon bringing dad all the balls ..... he asked for them!

and reading with Granny Gari, such a smart little guy!

Handsome little guy


I am so sad we don't get to have weekly dinners like we would if we lived in the same town .... maybe someday, right?!?!  Although, just a few more days, and I get to see you twice in the same month for Thanksgiving!

**Speaking of family, my sweet cousin was induced this morning and has been in labor for almost ten hours with her first baby.  Please pray for a healthy delivery of baby Berkley.  I get to meet her next week -- woohoo!

Can it be Tuesday already?!?!

It seems like you have a wonderful family! It is so nice to see that you make the most of every moment that you spend together. Sometimes when we dont see each other as much as we would like it makes the times that we do ever better! Your nephew is the cutest little thing!

I know he MUST love it when his spirited fun Aunt Kelsey is around! Oh...and I can totally...I mean totally relate to the
Chic-fil-a breakfast!!!! Nothing in the Northwest taste as good as that Chicken/Cheese biscuit!!!! When we were watching the Bama game earlier in the season at someones home in Mill Creek...it was sponsored by Chic-fil-a! They didn't even know how to pronounce it! Made me feel so far from home! You will love my post today...I bet you can relate! XXOOXX

We have some here, but I seem to forget.. however, I practically jump for joy when I see one on road trips now (b/c it sure beats McDonalds and anywhere else and seems to be sprouting up more and more!)
