Backyard Camp Out

Now that we have a great backyard, P has been dying to camp out with Lucy. They did on Friday night and Lu was sooo excited. She fell asleep within 15 minutes and they slept there all night. It was so much fun for them to do. He is the best Daddy. Reyn wanted to join in, but I think that would have made for a long night. Maybe in a few months Bubba.

 Poor little guy wanted to play with them so bad. He even brought his toothbrush.

Trimming the Tree

As soon as we got home from Thanksgiving break we went out and got our Christmas tree. I was so excited to have so much space to put our tree and to actual have room for decorations! We love getting each ornament out and remember where we got it or who may have given it to us. Each one is special. The tree we got was perfect. The kids all were in to decorating. RWS was more interested in taking them out of the boxes for us! I love getting in the holiday spirit! We had such a great day together and spending it as a family. Tis the season.

 We always get an ornament when we take a trip. It usually is cheesy, but a good symbol of that place. This is one of my favorites. Ha!

Thanksgiving on the Farm

This year we spent Thanksgiving in Clopton, on the farm. This year was especially fun because the cousins are getting older and all of them had sooo much fun playing together. They climbed trees, met some cows, went on a hay ride, roasted marshmallows, and had a blast. This is one of my favorite family get togethers. I can't wait for the kids to grow up loving this as much as we adults do. I just wish we saw them all more often!

 Ready for a hay ride!

Today Lucy's school had their Trike-A-Thon. Everyone brought their trikes and the teachers had made a little track for the kids to ride on. It was so cute to see the kids ride their bikes together. Plus, they got donuts.

 Brother was loving watching all of the kids ride around. He wanted to be out there so bad!

Thanksgiving Meal at School

I didn't take any pictures at the actual school meal, but I attempted to get some before we left. Lucy took a few and then she was done. The Thanksgiving feast was great, as usual, and we loved meeting Lu's friends. They always do a great job. Gobble.

Picnicking Siblings

We sold our kitchen table so we have had to do a little picnicking. They have been so cute sitting next to each other. I hope they always love each other this much. It makes my heart swell with joy when I see them loving on each other and sharing. It is the best!
 How cute are these two?!

Kliebert's Alligator and Reptile Farm

This weekend we went to Kiebert's Alligator Farm. Since we move a little bit, we try to do outings every now and then. It's fun to see the area that we live in. Kliebert's is featured on the History Channel. It's call "Swamp People." They raise a lot of different reptiles for food and for show. We saw some pretty huge gators, and I mean HUGE! It was a lot of fun and we will definitely go back. Lousisiana has so much to see and I hope we can get to some other fun sites.
