Thanksgiving in Texas part 1

Maddie, John and Izzie at the Portland airport, we are on our way to Texas!

Izzie and Momma.

We arrived and Nanny was waiting at Jackie and Tom's for us! She missed her girls and they missed her.

You know who else was missed? Sabrina! The "triplets" were reunited. Sabrina brought her Barbie house to Grandma's to show it to Maddie and Izzie. She'd shown it to them on Skype and couldn't wait to show it to them in person.

Maddie, Sabrina and Izzie... I guess this is how cousins play these days, huddled around an iPad.

John brought a Lego Playstation game and the kids all had a great time playing it.

We spent one night at Jackie's and then hit the road to spend a couple nights at Mema and Pepaw's house. Mema and Maddie haing out on the porch.

Mema got invited to a coloring party!

Mema trying to do Izzie's word search puzzle.

Big Twins and Little Twins! Izzie, Daylyn, Darian and Maddie.

Daylyn and her Daddy Darrin. Say that ten times fast.

The have their own little table.

Izzie reading a book to everyone on Mema's bed.

She was quiet offended when the little twins wandered off half way through the book. I had to remind her that they were younger and their attention span wasn't as long as hers.

John reunited once again with Freebirds. Oh how many burritos were eaten here during college....

We have to keep a close eye on Mema. She has pretty bad back problems but if she's feeling even slightly okay, she over does it, which leads to more back problems! In less than a blink of an eye she was up on this cabinet! We were talking about some old dishes and she thought she still had one, so she jumped up to get it down. Rhonda is trying to get her down carefully.

The girls are old enough to play in Mema and Pepaw's "Big Backyard." I spent many many hours exploring around their property when I was their age!

Maddie, Rhonda and Izzie.

Pepaw showing everyone an old family photo album.

Right before we left I wanted to do an impromptu family portrait. So, we weren't exactly dressed for it and I hadn't done my hair or make up, but I still love it. Pepaw, John, Mema, Me, Maddie and Izzie.

Rhonda, Pepaw, Mema and Me.
