I'm ready for another week off...

Tuesday, November 27, 2012
I feel like we were on the go non stop this Thanksgiving! We got off Friday and had a day of rest, then hit the road for Great Wolf Lodge Sunday - we were there till Tuesday & then headed back home for one day. Wednesday morning I was up early for errands & did a family photo shoot.
We had a beautiful, though somewhat warm morning for pictures. When I made it home Michael had all our lights up outside!! Then it was time to start cooking for our annual Thanksgiving with friends! Followed by Thanksgiving with family on Thursday at our house. Michael fried up two of the best turkeys for both days - they were super yummy & delicious! And after only being home a couple days we hit the road again for East Texas to see more family, play in the country, & hunt deer (Michael - not me!!)...

Friday morning driving up we went through a little rain, but it cleared up and turned out to be such beautiful weather! We were outside, bundled up, every day! And my kiddos got to see their first deer cleaned - now they know where all the meat in our freezer comes from! I thought they would be grossed out & actually at one point there were a few "Ewwwwssss", but for the most part they were fine with it - Emma even put some of the meat in the cooler for her daddy!
They sat in the truck & watched almost the entire process...they were so funny! Aaron had us cracking up just acting silly with Emma!!
We went on a lot of walks, too - like I said, even though it was cool out, it was just too beautiful to be inside missing all the pretty colors of the fall! 
Road to Grannie's house
Yeah, it wasn't easy leaving all that behind & driving back to Houston...

Here are a few more pics from our week off - now we're back to work & school & the day to day!!
