Thanksgiving 2013

Thanksgiving this year flew by…mainly because we didn't spend a few days in Marion.  My parents are renovating parts of their home, so we just surprised them with a day trip.  Funny thing is - we got the surprise. My parents treated us to lunch with my brother and his family AND took us to the Pink Palace for the Enchanted Forrest and a 3D Movie!  My boys had a GREAT time!

We started off the holiday in Carlisle with our Veazey Family.  We had a great time, but unfortunately, Tammy and her family weren't able to make it.

Branson Family Trip 2013

Every year, we go take a quick trip to Branson with both sets of grandparents and the kids.  We hit up Silver Dollar City for some fun rides and Christmas lights, we stay in a gorgeous cabin, cookout, see Santa, and just have a low key weekend of fun stuff.  Honestly, I couldn't enjoy it more and I know the grandparents feel the same way.  My boys LOVE to stay in a cabin and both get soooo excited about the rides at Silver Dollar City.

This year was no different - fun times had by all.  Eli was old enough to ride a few things this year and he loved every minute.   Jake rode his first roller coaster and my Dad took one for the team and did the tea cup with Jake.
