We had Thanksgiving dinner at Lindsay and Greg's (Andy's sister and her husband) house up in McKinney. It was fun to spend the afternoon and evening with her family and Andy's parents. We had lots and lots of good food! The only picture I took that day was of the French Silk pie I made and took up. It was AMAZING! I need to work on my whipped cream piping skills, but who really cares about the looks when it tastes so amazing? I got the recipe from here.
Friday afternoon my parents, Sarah, and Stephanie drove into town and we relaxed for a few hours before going downtown to the Chinese Festival of Lights at Fair Park to meet up with Lindsay's family and Andy's parents. We got there a bit later than we meant to, so we hardly got to see Andy's family. The lights were really pretty though and Isaac loved the dinosaurs! If we go another year we'll definitely go when it's not so cold!
The next day we went down to the Perot Museum with my family. My dad, sisters, and Andy had fun exploring the main part of the museum while my mom, Isaac, Adam, and I stayed in the children's part.
|Isaac was excited to show his Aunt Sarah and Aunt Stephanie his favorite part of the museum...the little blue truck!|
The blessing was wonderful. I love this opportunity for Andy and other worthy priesthood holders to formally take our children before the Lord and have their names put on the records of the Church. It's also a time to give these sweet babies a blessing of all the things the Lord wants for them.
After sacrament meeting, everyone came over to our little apartment for bagels and fruit. I had originally sworn that I wasn't going to do something that would cause us to leave church early, but we had seen so little of Andy's parents and I wanted Isaac to be able to spend a little more time with them. Unfortunately, Isaac was so overwhelmed by how many people were in our apartment that he wanted my dad to hold him most of the time. Oh well...hopefully this summer Isaac will get to spend more time with them.

Overall it was a great weekend! We loved spending so much time with family and having so many people here to celebrate Adam's special day!
