Our weekend in Memphis

Our county uses schools as polling centers, so Molly was off of school Monday and Tuesday for the election. We took the opportunity to fly to Memphis to visit with my family. Leah was thrilled to sit in the seat like Molly and we were excited to not have to carry her carseat through the airport!

We'll fly away

G'Mom and Grampa took us to a giant county park near their house. It has a spectacular playground, including this extremely tall and fast slide.

Super playground

Molly's favorite part of the playground was this teeter totter.

So much fun

The girls had fun all together on this basket swing.

Now we're swinging

Emmie must have thought that G'Mom and Grampa's house was really frigid! Or it may have been that she was excited about her new gifts from G'Mom.

Is it that cold, Emmie?

Molly loved her new sparkly clothes so much that she decided to cheer about them!

JJ was happy to watch all the dancing and cheering!


I couldn't resist making JJ a fleece monster hat. He'll be sporting a super fun hat this winter.

Emmie was the recipient of a cute monster hat too. She was also excited to model her new cherry corduroy jumper.

Saturday night we had an early Thanksgiving dinner. In preparation, Aunt 'Chelle needed to snap the green beans, so she enlisted some extra help.

You can never get enough holiday food, right?

An early Thankgiving

The girls all enjoyed playing games together on any available iOS device. They were even seen playing old school board games!

Still playing

JJ was sick over the weekend, but he did have some smiley moments.


Molly found that JJ's puppy played Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes, so she spent one afternoon trying to teach him all the moves. He was very entertained!

More to come tomorrow…
