Thanksgiving Activities

We had all kinds of fun with family for Thanksgiving. We started at Bana's house (Peter's mom, in case you aren't familiar with the grandparent lingo) for lunch. DELICIOUS! We played with Uncle Joel, Uncle Jimmy, Grandpa and Bana. We missed Isaac though. You'll notice I have no pictures of this event. It's because they had her in an Alabama rocking chair, with an Alabama shaker and an Alabama teddy bear. Somehow my camera seemed to have died during all that. ;)

Then we went for games and sangria at Dooba (my mom.) We played with Dooba and Grandpapa (said like a high-society snob... we're still working on his name,) Aunt Hagen, Aunt Grace, Uncle George and Aunt Brittany, and John Ellis. You can see Pierce studying her dictionary at this event. We're so proud.

Earlier in the week we had dinner with tons of Stegalls, in celebration of Jenny, Will, Annie, William and JEB's return from Asia! We're so glad to have them back! Then we had dinner with lots of Stegalls again, just for fun. Pierce loves her little cousins. Big families are a blast.

Lastly, we went Christmas tree chopping. It's possibly my very most favorite tradition. This was Pierce's 1st experience and I believe she may have loved it. She found some bamboo that she carried around like a walking stick, went on her 1st hay ride, had boiled peanuts and kettle corn, and pet a pony and a dog. Could anything be better? She and Dooba looked so adorable all matching (unplanned.)

The holiday season is off to a great start!

cooper22Finally! New pics of your sweet little one year old! Where did you go to get your Christmas Tree? Coop and I just went to Marvins, but next year, we are going to a Christmas Tree farm to start a new tradition. It just really seems like soo much more fun than going to Marvins.
