We drove down to Monroeville, AL for Thanksgiving to see all my family last week and it was SO fun! Peebs got to spend some serious quality time with his cousin Wilburs and it was hilarious. They loved and hated each other at the same time, just like siblings! I also noticed how far my boy has come in his social skills and anger management now that he can really talk. He was very good about talking to Will about his issue rather than bashing him in the head. That is some progress! Will did a great job teaching his cousin ( who he still calls baby Fenn) all about things like driving the gator, climbing up the side of the stairs and drinking through a straw. I LOVED seeing them together, and Fenn was WORN OUT, like begging to go to bed every day! He would then wake up approx 87,000,000 times asking to "wake up" for the day because I think he thought Will was downstairs and he was missing something.
Bebe was pretty patient with our dog children and even let Ralphie watch Christmas Mickey!
Dad drove to Pensacola to Joe Patti's and got TONs of Seafood for a cook out at the pasture! We had fried shrimp, crab claws, oysters, royal reds, raw oysters, and gumbo! Will and Fenn played so hard and drove the gator lots too.
and instead of sitting around our camp fire, we all sat around sister! ha she enjoyed all the attention and took a nice nap in the shed. This girl has been an EXCELLENT traveler and so sweet and happy... and I am SO THANKFUL.
Saturday morning we left Monroeville to watch the Iron Bowl in Birmingham @edwardsedition house because my entire family is bammers except my dad! #dontknowhowthathappened
Sister was able to nap and go to bed there with all the screaming and all! She also did excellent when we transferred her from Susannah's house to the car to the Latimer House. She was awake the whole way home and I just changed her diaper, clothes and put her in the pack n play and she went right back to sleep without any objection! I was shocked!
Look at all these little people. They cracked me UP! It is so weird to see my kids, with all my friends kids. I never really pictured that when we were younger and it is so cute!
And look at this FEAST:
Erik was so nervous about the game that he stayed and played with kids most of the time. I told him before we got there that Auburn was gonna win, I just knew it! Too bad I don't bet! That game was incredible, and it is so weird that I am so into football after all these years! It was hard to keep all my snark to myself after that game.
And.. I gotta give Susannah props, because it takes a solid woman to allow me to bring my circus of 2 kids and 2 dogs to her party! She was really sweet and patient about it. Latimers too, cause they let us spend the night with all that circus and endured peebs trying to jump on MA's bed and Flossie trying to fight their new pup! Hays even cooked us all breakfast! #greatfriendsforthewin
So It is safe to say that we had an awesome Thanksgiving with our family and with our friends! Waaaarrrrrrrr EAGLE! HEY!
PS. Traveling with 2 dogs and 2 kids ain't no joke! The kids were not bad, but I feel like 4 passengers is too much for me! I need to find a new dog sitter now. Aunt Julie had to put us down b/c she has her own dog now and Flossie ( or floosie as my bro calls her) is mean to other dogs.
