Thanksgiving 2010

I know I have not even posted about Halloween yet, but thought I better try to stay current and then add the old things in as I go....hopefully!! We had a great Thanksgiving this year!! We started the weekend before with Dale's family at his Aunt's Joyce and Nancy's house. (I took the camera but forgot to take any pics!) We had a nice visit there and Kelsee was able to meet some of her family that had not yet seen her.
Our next event was heading to Texas on Wednesday evening. We arrived at my Aunt Lynne's house about midnight. We spent Thursday with my Dad's family at her house. The kids always enjoy playing at "Honey's" house, the girls enjoy planning our shopping adventure and the guys enjoy her comfy couches!! I left Kelsee for the first time at night that night to head out with Emily, Dale and Meagan to grab some GREAT deals! When I left she was asleep and when I got back she had just woke up to eat...so I guess I didn't miss much! Emily, Dale, Meagan and I headed out about 11pm and returned with the back of the Tahoe loaded about 7am!! We took a short nap and headed out to my Mom's brothers house for more Turkey dinner. Once again we had a great visit with the family and it was great to see my Grandparents looking so good.
Saturday morning we slept in...oops...so we rushed around and left Em's about 11 heading North for the big Bedlam game. But first we took Kelsee's 2nd round of pics with her Grow With Me Bow!! They are going to be so cute!!!
And I don't even have to go into our Saturday evening because I am sure ALL of you know how the OU/OSU game turned out....I am still trying to get Dale out of mourning for that!! LOL!
Well, I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving....I have to go change a diaper!! (The story of my life lately!!!)

The Lawson Family ThanksgivingAddie loved putting Kelsee to sleep! She was so funny...when they first got there her sister Bailey wanted to hold Kelsee, I told her her hands were like ice and Addie said "my hands are HOT!" Too cute!!
Snuggled up to her Doe-Doe....Bailey was never far from her all day! She LOVES her Kelsee!!
Meagan, Kelsee, Bailey and Kaylee...not sure where Addie and Macie were. Bailey and Kaylee are 5 days apart.

Just a Quick Update

Things have been ridiculously crazy around here lately so I apologize for the long time between posts! I don't have time right now (heading out to the kids Veterans Day program at school in less than an hour) to post pics, but I have lots to post soon....hopefully!!! But I wanted to get a few things recorded in here before I forget about them!!

All 3 kids had a great time on Halloween. We went with a bug theme this year. Kelsee was a bee, Kaylee was a ladybug and Braden was the spider (I know it is not technically a bug, but it worked!) They were all very cute and I was so proud of myself....between borrowing costume pieces and making some I spent less than $20 on all 3!!! I have lots of great pics of the kids at our annual trip to the pumpkin patch, Halloween parties at school and trick or treating. I promise I will post them later!

We had a very emotional week last week in our house. We lost Dale's Grandpa on Saturday. He was a huge part of Dale's life and he and the kids greatly adored him so even though the immediate grieving process is over, it is not all over. Grandpa was the man that helped mold my husband into the great man he is today and for that I will be eternally thankful to him. Also, my kids have always been very special to him and helped make their trips to Nana's very special. He will be greatly missed by all!

Some news on Miss Kelsee....she is growing like a lil weed!!! We went to the Dr last week and she weighs 12 lbs. 13 oz and was 23 1/2" long!! She is wearing a size 1 diaper and size 0-3 month clothes. She is not going to be in these sizes much longer though!! She is doing great breastfeeding and is starting to sleep longer periods of time too! WOO HOO!! She is getting a lil personality on her and we are LOVING it!! Kelsee loves her brother and sister and when they (well anyone) talks to her she just laughs and coo's right back at you.

Miss Kelsee has found her thumb lately and unfortunately is loving it. We have pulled her thumb out and replaced it with the paci, and she has even spit the paci out and put the thumb back in!! UH OH!!! We are still working on it and even though it is so cute to watch her suck her thumb, hopefully we will be able to break her of this to avoid future issues.

Well, I had better get going for now and go get us ready and feed lil Missy before we need to go to the school. Oh and I have some other VERY exciting news to share with you at a later date!! So check back for more!!
