Thanksgiving was a little different this year.  My parents rented a cabin for a few days so we all headed out there to enjoy some family time, good food and football. The weather was wonderful so we got to enjoy lots of outdoor activities, including Hannah's first fishing experience.  And we were nestled in the woods so the scenery was gorgeous!  It really couldn't have been a better weekend!
 Jason smoked the turkey for the family this year.  It tasted great and I think he found his "job" for Thanksgiving every year! :)

We didn't leave for the cabin until Thanksgiving day so before we left, we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.  I loved watching it as a kid (actually I still really love it and look forward to it every Thanksgiving!) and Hannah loved it too!  She waved to all her favorite floats and balloons as they passed on the TV.  Too cute!!!

Then we headed to the cabin to see my parents and my sister and her husband.

A little family picture taking while dinner cooked.

Jason carved the turkey and it was YUMMY!!

After our Thanksgiving feast, Hannah and Dean Dean made a gingerbread house.  She was so serious the whole time!

SO proud of her creation!  And showing it off to MiMi

 The place that we stayed at had this amazing little playground for kids.  These were four mini log cabins for kids to play in.  Hannah LOVED it!!! And it was super cute!

 the look of pure JOY

Friday morning, we got up and went fishing.  (that adventure deserves a post all it's own because it was so cute!)  And then came back to the cabin to cheer on the Razorbacks against LSU.

 My child LOVES fruit and this tray was basically hers all weekend. Ha!

 Hannah loves her some Jack!

 My family loves to get together and play games!  We played several games all weekend and Hannah even got in on the UNO fun with me and Jason.

We had a great Thanksgiving weekend with my family!  I am so thankful for such an amazing family to spend the holidays with!  I was reminded of how much the Lord has done in our lives this year and I am truly grateful for where we are.  It hasn't been the easiest year but I have grown in my faith, Jason and I have grown stronger as a couple and I can see the Lord really starting to work on Hannah's little heart.  It has been an amazing year and for that, I am thankful.

nwa boutique show

On Friday, my mom, Hannah and I headed out the NWA Boutique Show for a little girl time and shopping. It was a really fun afternoon and I am so excited about doing more girly shopping with Hannah as she gets older!

However, Hannah wasn't too happy about walking around looking at things for more than about an hour but this Bliss cupcake quickly changed her tune. :)

Then, we headed over to Marketplace for lunch.  Hannah was more interested in playing checkers than eating.  She loves going to Marketplace because of all the fun things in the waiting area.  They know how to entertain little ones!

 One happy little girl with our goody bag from the boutique show.

Love her SO much and look forward to many more girly afternoons with her!
