Tripp's 1st Thanksgiving

Our precious boy
This past week has been full of family, friends, fun and food!! It has definitely been a week to be thankful for especially because it was tripp's very first thanksgiving. We had three delicious feasts! On sunday we went to Carl's parent's house, Wednesday we went over to chief and ging's house and on thursday we went over to yaya's!
Perhaps the most fun was our annual black friday shopping! this year we started really early! We were at walmart by midnight, target by 2 then we hit kohl's and lowes too! It was freezing but oh so much fun!!! My mom, sister and I look forward to this every year!! It is quite the experience!! we got home at 6:30am and crashed!so fun!!
below are some pictures from the past week...enjoy!

Another weekend full of celebrations!

What a fun weekend we've had! Saturday we traveled to baytown to celebrate our precious nephew/cousin Jake's 2nd birthday! And on Sunday we went over to Carl's parent's house to have thanksgiving dinner with the family. We had a great weekend full of family and friends. I'll let the pictures tell you the rest....

As you can see we had a great thanksgiving dinner at coach and grammy's! That is the first of three thanksgiving dinners we will be having this week! Can't wait and you can bet tripp and I will be out jogging for the next few days in preparation for all the feasting;) Below are some pictures from Jake's elmo birthday party. We had so much fun celebrating as you will see! I would have taken more pictures but I forgot to charge my camera battery so it died:( But i managed to get a few pics! So enjoy!

Elmo cupcakes!

We had an awesome weekend! And tripp has been changing so much! He is constantly on the go and always wants to be standing up! He doesn't seem to be too interested in crawling and really wants to walk! We have been spending a lot of time outside. Especially riding around on daddy's four wheeler....tripp loves it! Everytime he sees his daddy riding around he starts kicking his legs and tries to jump out of my arms! I will post pictures soon. Thanks for stopping by and we wish everyone a happy and blessed thanksgiving! I know we have much to be thankful for. We will update again real soon.

Love and Blessings,

Traci and tripp:)

so sweet!!
We've been very busy with our little boy these days! We are patiently awaiting the arrival of two pesky little teeth! He has also found a new interest in standing with help. He does not like to sit down! He wants to stand and walk so badly!! Everyday is a new adventure and we cannot wait to celebrate jake's birthday next weekend and celebrate tripp's first thanksgiving next week! We are so thankful and so blessed for our precious little boy! Carl and I will also be celebrating our 3 year anniversary tomorrow....hopefully I will find some time to dedicate a blog post...we will see! This is by far the best anniversary yet...because we have a precious baby boy to celebrate with us!
Thanks for stopping by!
love and blessings,
