Our Thanksgiving and the return of our Elf!

This was our first Thanksgiving in a long time that we traveled and didn't have to host at our house. We went to El Maton, Texas to visit family and stayed from Wednesday to Sunday morning. That's a long time to be away from home when you are pregnant. We had a blast and we were one with the Country. 

On Friday night we put up the Christmas tree and did our annual gift exchange. Our family is growing so big that we now have to just bring one gift and everybody picks in the form of a game called White Elephant. It is really fun to do, because you can steal from people! We started this tradition 3 or 4 years ago. 

Myself, my sister and our sister in law.
My handsome bub and his beautiful wife.
On Thanksgiving Day all of their family came and I mean ALL of them. There were probably somewhere around 50+ plus people there!
There was a lot of shooting of skeet and four wheeler riding and Christmas movies for me.
Who knew this kid would be so good in the Country. We didn't hear an "I am bored" one time in five days. No video games either! Wooohoo

And this morning Jake returned with a North Pole breakfast! He brought pancake mix, hot chocolate, marshmallows, candy canes and a letter to Trey. Trey loved it!
