Thanksgiving at Bunny and Pop's

We had ANOTHER wonderful Holiday weekend in OK at Bunny and Pop's House. Again, I didn't get many pictures of the adults. I need to get better about that! At least there are other kids to look at besides Meg, in these pictures. Chad actually took most of these pictures. I was inside where it was warm. Meg spend hours in the sandbox, on the slide, watching Scooby Doo, playing in the grandkid's room, riding the golf carts, roasting marshmallows in the outside fireplace and enjoying her cousins.

Meg and her Chauffeur, Austin.

I also just realized I didn't get a single picture of Baby Halle. She didn't spend much time outside either! Looking foward to many more wondeful family holidays at Bunny and Pop's House.

Wedding Bells

This weekend we were able to go to the wedding of the most precious couple. Chad and I had them both in our huddle group at church right after we got married. They weren't dating at the time, but we did get to be a part of their lives when they did start dating up until they left for College and the Air Force. It makes me feel really old since I think they were Sophomores in High School when we met them and now they are college graduates getting married.
I didn't get a single picture of Chad and I at the wedding. Take my word for it, we looked really nice. Nor did I get a picture of the Bride and Groom, the Cakes or any of the other friends or guests. I have a one track mind. We were also pretty busy trying to keep Meg from crashing the party in any way. Her best friend Merrick was the flower girl in the wedding and our other friend Luke was the Ring Meg had fun dancing the night away with her friends. They were hilarious.
These are just a few I took before we left the house.

This is what I get when I say, "say cheese." I am going to stop saying that.

Fortunately we were sitting in a back corner with room for the kids to dance and play without disturbing too many other tables.

After meg say Luke and Merrick holding hands and swinging around, she said, "can you hold my hand?" It was really sweet. Usually she is happy to be independent and unconfined. That must have looked really fun.

Trick or Treat

Here is just a little glimpse of Meg's Halloween Festivities. She was a pretty cute little Tiger/Kitty....depending on which time you asked her. The next few are of the cute Pumpkin kits that Chad's Mom sent her. She had so much fun decorating and redecorating and mixing around these silly pumpkin faces.
Much more enjoyable for a 2 year old then carving a pumpkin, I think.

I quickly nixed the bow tie. It looked a little to Chippendale(ish) to me. Although, Meg kept asking, "where's my hair bow on my neck?", after I took it off.

We got to Trick or Treat with my nephews, Bronson and Austin again this year. It is really sweet how excited they get to go with Meg. I am not sure why she wouldn't sit any closer to them, but we were lucky just to get her seated for a second.

I think they were both a little tired of pictures here.

I had to get an actual Trick or Treat picture, even though Meg was content to ride in the stroller and eat her candy by this point. Her cousins were so sweet to get her a piece when she didn't come to the door.
