Thanksgiving week

We spent Thanksgiving week at my parents house since we had just spent the weekend with Papa and Vivi back in Virginia. We flew in Monday afternoon and left early Friday morning. We hung at the house Tuesday and Wednesday and the kids had fun playing with Nana and Pop and Aunt Hayley. 

 Beekah and James came by to play one afternoon too

Hunter and Madison helped Nana bake some cookies

And listened to Pop tell stories at night on the porch

Sweet Audrey's FIRST Thanksgiving!

She loves scruff!

 Jordan's game was at 3:15pm at the Cowboy's stadium (pretty perfect huh?!) So Nana planned the meal so that we could eat a little early and leave in time for the game.

 This was our 5th attempt at a group picture before I left. Perfectly depicts this stage of life! NUTS

We went down to see Jordan after the game. He looked SO handsome! I rarely get to see him at away games in his travel suit :)

My parents stayed behind and kept my kids for me so I could actually watch the game and they could get a decent nap and go to bed at a decent time because we were flying out early the next morning.

Family Picture

We left bright and early the next morning to fly back to Washington and this time Aunt Beekah flew with us! 

Hunter and Audrey hung with me

 Madison (in her car seat) and Beekah sat on the other side of the isle. Maddie actually napped this time! 

This boy LOVES his Beekah

Papa and Vivi

This past weekend Papa and Vivi came to Virginia to visit and to go to a game. Hunter and Madison were BEYOND excited to see them. 

 As usual the weekend was full of crafty fun 

Vivi's specialty 

They made a construction paper Christmas tree

We took them to the park

Audrey snuck in some snuggle time with daddy (she LOVES his scruff)

Audrey and daddy were REALLY tuned in to the Notre Dame game

Vivi soaked up snuggles with all her grand babies

 Vivi caught a pic of the tail end of my snuggle bug Hunter nuzzling in :)

Maddie ran to the store with me one night all by herself

I love one on one outings. She insisted on the football shoes :)

Maddie (always with a baby in tote) is such a little mommy

Papa and Vivi's first home Redskins game

On Monday, the day after the game, we all loaded up and flew to Dallas for Thanksgiving week. God bless helpful grandparents!!

We each took a kid...nice way to fly!! Vivi hung with Maddie, who flew in the car seat.

Papa and Hunter hung out. Hunter took a catnap in Papa's lap while getting scratched!

And Sweet Audrey napped and nursed on and off on me. Talk about an EASY trip with 3 kids!

I'm so glad Papa and Vivi came up for a visit and timed it perfectly with our flight home for Thanksgiving. What a fun weekend!
