Thanksgiving weekend

We spent our Thanksgiving in Fredricksburg with my parents, my sister's family and my brother-in-law's parents and nieces.  I've known Russell's family since I was seven, so I consider them my family too.  We had a great Thanksgiving lunch at Phil and Laverne's house. 

Friday night we went to downtown Fredricksburg for the lighting of the Christmas tree and the German pyramid.  It was really cool! 

They even had a little patch of snow for the kids to play in.
I love this picture of my parents with the kids.  Lauren is screaming and the boys are fighting, so it's pretty accurate of our life at times! 
The whole gang.
Next, we headed to Dripping Springs for their Christmas festivities.  It was coooold!  When we got in the car to leave that night, the thermometer said it was 29.  Brrrr!

Lauren ran around calling all the deer "Bambi".

The boys were so excited to see Santa and Mrs. Claus.  Lauren, not so much.  Austin asked Santa for Matchbox Wolf Mountain for Christmas and Ethan asked for Legos and a zoo. Lauren didn't stop crying until Santa's helper handed her a candy cane. :)
It was a wonderful Thanksgiving and I'm so thankful we got to spend it with family!

Great pictures, Lisa. I love the one of your entire family in front of the lighted trees.
