A few weeks ago we went to Jackson for the weekend to visit my parents. Of course, we had a great time…but it doesn’t even come close to comparing how good of a time the kids had. As soon as we roll into town, the kids get more energy than humanly possible. Typically (as we did this time), we got in aound 9 at night. As soon as we get there, the kids are wired like it is 9 AM.
One of the key agenda items while we were there was to get Christmas pictures for my mom’s Christmas cards. For anyone that knows my mom, you know that by Thanksgiving, she’s got her Christmas cards in the mail. They’re normally boxed up and stamped well before then. So taking a Christmas picture this early is completely normal in our family.
We accidentally left all of my camera gear at home, but we managed to make out okay. After all, I’ve always said that the camera doesn’t make the pictures. 🙂
Also, on Laura’s agenda was to get individual pictures of the kids. We’ve got 3 16x20s on our living room wall of Haley and Trey. So after 2 years of Avery being in our family, I guess it’s time we get one up of her. 🙂
All in all, a fantastic visit. It was nice to see my parents, although sweet, sensitive Haley had a meltdown when we left. She loves her grandparents so much. And I love to see it!
We ended the weekend with a trip back to Memphis through Starkville to watch the Dogs beat Jackson State.
