Trip to Texas

We got back on Wednesday from a WONDERFUL trip to Texas!!! We had so much fun. We spent the first few days in Austin. We had Thanksgiving with my mom, two brothers, sister and their families. Then, on Sunday, we left for Dallas and spent a few days there with my sister, Amanda, and best friend, Cassie. Here's a picture of me & my brother John! He is the worldest greatest brother and friend!
Here's a picture of my mom with all of her grandkids!!! Amanda is holding Aliyah, Grandma is holding Edith and Maya is standing between Justin & Ashley. We had a few basketball games with Justin and they are good!!!
My sister Amanda, with her husband Jeff and their daughter Edith. Justin & Amanda at Thanksgiving dinner!
During our trip in Dallas, we stopped by some old friends of mine! While I was at Howard College (my first year of college in Big Spring, TX), this family pretty much adopted me!!! They fed me ALL the time and let me wash my clothes at their home. They were my family away from family and it was SO wonderful to see them. The are the Shuttlesworth family...Blake, Pam and Tara (their daughter Krystal had to get back to school....but I will see her next time!) Thanks again Pam for the wonderful dinner....thank you! thank you! We had such a wonderful time at your home!Happy Birthday to you!!!! Aliyah turned a year old while we were in Texas! We celebrated her birthday at my best friend's house! Thanks Cassie for the princess party! And, I don't know what happened, but we didn't get one picture of us together!!!! I'm so sad. I didn't even get one of you looking at the camera....ahhh!
Here are our princesses! Maya, Ava & Sophia!!!! Aren't they precious! We love our girls!

The Texas Thanksgiving was such a great time !... even though it was cold and rainy... of course, now in mid-December it is 70 degrees here in Austin... ah, Texas weather.
