This picture was taken a few months back when Great Grandma Armer (Ryan's Grandma) was in town visiting from Kansas. I can't believe how young Bentley looks in this photo, she has a head full of hair now!! We unfortunately do not get to make it to Kansas as much as we would like. Ryan is from Kansas and everyone on his side still lives there except for his parents and sister, they are here in Texas with us. Ryan's job allows him to only be able to take vacation certain months of the year and that makes it even more difficult. We would love to go during the Holidays so we can visit all his family on both his parents sides, any other time during the year it is hard to get everyone together... but Holiday months are the months he cannot take off. He is in the wine business and of course Holidays are the peak of wine so he is very much needed. It is so fun there, the weather is completely different than what I'm use to. I have seen snow every time I have been there where as here in Texas I have seen very little snow. Our snow is not anything compaired to theirs. In Kansas when I have seen it.. it is WHITE and deep (you can play in it)... in Texas the snow barely covers the ground and it is yellow since it's not so deep!!! We have made 1 snowman and he was about 2 feet tall (Bryson was almost 3 and Brenna was 2 months old) and that took A LOT of work and ALL the snow in our yard. It took hours and the snow was melting by the minute. Oh and yes!! Our snowman wore a cowboy hat for laughs!!! I will have to find that picture. So we really wish we could make it there during the Holidays... but this Thanksgiving half of his family will be coming to Texas. Grandma Armer (above) and her daughters & family will be enjoying Thanksgiving here!!! YYAYYY!!! We are very excited and look forward to seeing them all. I could not ask for better inlaws, they are so great!!! We miss them dearly and often wish they would pack up and move down south!!!
I know many of you are from all over the world and I would love to hear how you celebrate Thanksgiving.. and your family traditions. I am facinated by how different everything is in other locations. I am a small town girl and to be honest I have only been out of state when we went to Kansas. So I would love to hear everything about your Thanksgiving. I am not sure how I want to do this, so I want your feedback. The easiest way is to have you post about it... you can just leave me a comment and I can go to your blog and read all about your Thanksgiving traditions... then I wondered if my blog friends also want to know how other people celebrate Thanksgiving so thought maybe Mr. Linky? That way you can get to everyones blog from my blog and read them all yourself as well??? Which do you think. Comment or Mr. Linky? We will probably do this Tuesday or Wednesday... I will let you know once I hear what most of you want to do? Just comment or email and let me know!!!
PS.. I think I am going to do a blog design giveaway here very soon. I have a couple of mine that I have used before and no longer need... I might as well give them away!!! I will keep you posted!!!
