Thanksgiving + Our First Baby Shower

This weekend was just what the Dr ordered!  Well, technically not what the Dr ordered... He wasn't very happy that I was traveling clear across the state at 31 weeks pregnant.  {Insert big, cheesy smile here!}  But, it was good for the heart & the soul.  Good family time x2, great Thanksgiving food x2, Christmas was even celebrated... x2 - it was a great several days!  Sadly, I don't have many pictures from our Thanksgivings but, Friday morning as we were leaving Graham to travel South, this beautiful sunrise wished us "Good Morning"!

While we were in Corpus, on Saturday my family threw us our first baby shower!  It was so nice to have family & family friends there that won't be able to make it to our shower here at home in January & to visit with everyone just a little bit longer after the Thanksgiving festivities were over.  We were gifted with some amazing things for Jack & it all makes me so much more excited {is that possible!?} & ready for baby boy to be here!!!

Probably my favorite gift of all!  My aunt's mother-in-law was so sweet to gift this beautiful quilt to Jack!  She hand stitched every square & quilted it all by hand as well - whoa!  We are so grateful for Memaw & her abilities & thoughtfulness for us & Jack!!  I'll cherish this blanket forever!!

My family & family friends - so thankful for all of them!

We definitely came home with full stomachs & full hearts!  Looking forward to what December has in store for us!
