Giving Thanks

We spent Thanksgiving in Mooreland at Brent's parents' house. It was great and we all ate until we were miserable. My parents came over, so we just had to do the Thanksgiving thing once. We get to spend a lot of holidays with both of our families at the same time! How many people get to do that? I am reminded of how blessed we are with wonderful families (and special family friends too). We are really lucky and love them all!!........Now, for a MUCH NEEDED EXPLANATION of the following three pictures: During dinner, Hollace got into Grammy Terri's antique hat collection and decided we all needed to wear one. She put one on each of us and this is how we all looked during most of dinner.

If you can see Rhett in the back on Papa's lap, he didn't cooperate with Hollace's idea quite as well as everyone else did.

After all the turkey I guess Rhett felt the need to brush his teeth!
He is wearing a vest of Brent's when he was a baby. (Brent's mom got it out-Isn't it cute.)

Hollace has the right idea with a nap after the big day and HUGE meal!

Happy BOO-lated Halloween!!

Here are a few pics from Halloween. They are a little late, but at least I got them up before Thanksgiving! Hope everyone has safe travel this week and enjoys family and great food!!

Hollace wanted to be Tinker Bell and since Rhett doesn't have an opinion yet,
he got to be Peter Pan!

We went to Kid Fest at our church. The kids had lots of fun and
of course got plenty of candy.

I made Rhett's costume (with lots of help from my mom).
It was my first real sewing project.

Peter Pan enjoyed tormenting Tink by pulling on her wings

Starting a Blog/ Hollace's 4th Birthday

Ok, I finally started a blog. It is so much fun to look at my friends' blogs to keep up with them and their kids, especially the ones I don't see very often. So I decided to start my own. I don't know how often I will actually post, but I'll try. I decided to start with Hollace's 4th birthday. It was about a month ago now. I can't believe my baby girl is 4!! She wanted a ballerina party, so here it is.

Here are all the little ballerinas.

My mom and I made the girls their own tu-tu for party favors.

Rhett was a little overwhelmed by all the ballerinas

Keeping with tradition I made Hollace's cake.
