South Texas Trip- continued

Late Saturday night, we headed to Brackettville to Uncle Stoney and Aunt Judy's wonderland of a house! It was all decked out in Autumn/Halloween decor! Here Stoney is showing Drew how to blow the whistle.



This cracked us up to no end! Listen to Drew as he tries to blow the "Choo-choo-whistle"...he totally fakes it (we did this over and over...Stoney and I had tears from laughing so hard)

Aunt JuJu and Uncle Stoney had gotten out all of their boys' old toys from when they were young! I remembered all of them---seeing as how we were ALWAYS down south when I was growing up! It was so neat to watch my kids play with them years later!



Drew going for a ride on the wooden giraffe



Sav (with her crazy hair) pulled this Choo-choo-train around for hours!



Granny Jean lovin' on Ethan after church on Sunday



We headed back over to Uvalde and played with Aunt Susan & the Great Grands for a while



too cool for school, this one



Such an incredible thing to watch grandparents enjoying their grandchildren and great grandchildren



Mr. E was the cuddle bug that night! Melting in Susan's arms



Here she goes again...it is impossible to keep clothes on Miss Thang...can't help but laugh when she flashes me this smile (the little priss)



Lights up a room, I tell ya (Andrew)



Grandpapa and Beeeeen



Grandpapa and Drew



Ahhh...we said our goodbye's and packed up for our LOOOOONG drive home. At one point, all four kids were asleep!!! You don't understand...this hasn't happened in the car since they were infants! WOOO HOOO! SO nice... (and if you haven't invested in a DVD player for your car yet, I'm tellin' ya---it is worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY!)


Cheers!

Suz,
We had that train and my kids play with it at my mom and dad's. Ashley is all about trains and being chic. She and Sav would get along famously! Love the pix!

We had one of those giraffe ride on toys when my brother was a little boy! You can fit a kid under that seat and then sit on it trapping them in.

Bret and Heather said...

OMG Suz, LOVE Drew and the train whistle... too funn!

Leigha said...

Aww! They are so precious! (Nice car seat cover too ;) I'm SO glad it fit!!)

I don't think we could take car rides w/o the dvd player! We have one in each of our trucks!!

Have a Safe Thanksgiving trip too.

So happy you all made it home safe and sound after a family and fun-filled weekend. Way to go, SuperMama!

Loved all the pics and videos. On the last post, I started smiling from ear to ear at the pic of Ben with cousin Big Andrew....Ben looks like a little linebacker! When did he grow so big?!

And HOLLA for the 4 sleeping 2 year olds! I bet silence never sounded so good.

Excited to see and hear about your next big weekend....wanna see the "after" pics from the foil-laden headshot you texted me the other day. Betcha it turned out GORGEOUS like always. Hot mama! Have fun this weekend!

XOXO,
Moni

LOL! Miss Sav with just her shoes and beads...a hoot! She is somethin'!

LOVED Drew "blowing" the whistle. Too funny!

LOVE all of those old toys. Very cool that they have held on to them. Seeing the pics brought back memories of my own childhood..too cool!

ps I don't think i would EVER travel hours in the van alone with my kids without a DVD player. Not ever again. LOL

SO much fun!!! The DVD, I agree, has been a lifesaver for our family too. Sav and her cheezy pict make me smile :)
Have a great weekend!
