We started Thanksgiving last Saturday. We celebrated with Brent's family then. There were about 20 people there. It was nice outside and the kids had the best time playing. The kids are really close with their cousins, and they were all SO good. After eating WAY too much food, the adults played Upwords and Scrabble Slam. Too much fun! If you haven't played Scrabble Slam, you should give it a try! It was so much fun. Brent hates playing it b/c you have to all play at the same time and it's a very fast and slightly confusing game! Some of the kids are even getting big enough to play. It was funny to sit back and listen to them trying to play after all the adults were done!
Sunday afternoon I dropped off the kids at Nona and Papaw's. They were out of school for the whole week and were excited to be going. Xavier went hunting every day of Thanksgiving break and did not get a deer! He had a blast though! Tuesday I went to Mena and Wednesday afternoon after playing golf with his dad and brother, Brent joined us. My mom, grandma, and I all cooked and got all the casseroles made on Wednesday so on Thanksgiving day all we had to do was cook. It was really nice. We had a huge dinner. So much yummy food and desserts! Thursday night after resting for awhile we all left Mena. Brent and the kids came home. Papaw and Xavier headed back to the lake to hunt. The girls went to Ft. Smith to get ready to shop on Friday! I just got Xavier back today. Naia was also sick all week. Finally got into a dr. on Saturday and she has an ear infection. I think it may be her first! Hopefully she'll feel better soon!
That just about wraps up our holiday break! We all had a great time. My kids are getting SO big. Xavier was old enough to hunt all week. He also played games with the grownups after the little kids went to bed. He's starting to get some jokes and is developing quite the personality!
