Is it seriously almost Christmas? Holy cow I am behind on my blog posts! I will do a quick recap of Thanksgiving, and then it’s on to the holiday posts!
We made the 4 hour trek down to my Mom and Pops’ house for Thanksgiving, even though we’re also visiting for Christmas. My brother, his girlfriend, and their kids will be there for Christmas, as well as my inlaws! It’s going to make for a very busy holiday. So we decided we wanted a visit where we got my parents to ourselves, and time for Piglet to get some one on one time with his grandparents.
It was such a quiet and relaxing stay. I love that we always get a date night whenever we visit, guaranteed. It felt great to get out of the house again with Match! I always fall a little more in love with him when we get those moments together.
Piglet had a blast on the farm.
We visited with the goats, and went riding on the four wheeler. Don’t let his little serious face fool you. He LOVED riding the four wheeler with PopPop.
I even managed to bribe my parents into taking some great family photos with us. Usually they whine and complain about it, but this time they were game. I set up the tripod and somehow we even got Piglet to smile for the camera without anyone on the other side making funny faces!
This one is going on our Christmas card. I adore this picture of us. I can’t believe how big our little boy is getting!
We also caught up with MissPhD and her fiance (yay! that’s right she’s engaged! Oh, and she met him on Match, just like us!) We hadn’t met her fiance before, and we instantly liked him. We’re so excited for MissPhD finally getting her happy ending.
The day before we left, we made a trip over to the train museum. Piglet loved getting to check out all the choo-choos.
Our visit would not have been complete without a trip to the beach. Piglet loved playing in the sand.
It was a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, and I’m so thankful that we live close enough to make the drive for a long weekend. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving too!
