Hudson celebrated his 2nd birthday on turkey day this year! We were in Texas for this, so we had a little party at our house for a few friends and neighbors before we left. He loves tractors, so we did a John Deere party, played pin the wheel on the tractor, had some cake and snacks. He pretty much stayed glued to his alphabet train and scooted around the house on that the whole party, but her knew the party was for him and the presents and his cake were “Hudson’s”.
Lilly turned 4 and we had a jumping party. She had lots of friends from school and church there to celebrate – I think they all had a good time jumping and being silly. She also had snow on her real birthday – two years in a row – I think now she may come to expect it.
It was fun to have our first real snow in NC, we have had one more little one since then. I can’t believe how cold it is here compared to Texas – a real winter for sure! We’ve already built our first snowman!
We took 2 weeks and traveled to Texas (driving) over Thanksgiving. We saw both sides of the family, all the sibs, and great grandmothers. We had a good time visiting, just a lot of driving in the car. The kids did well, though, and enjoyed staying in some hotels. In Tyler we went to the zoo and in Houston we rode horses and fished – Lilly caught her first fish!
