Last Days of Thanksgiving visit in Austin

Last Days of Thanksgiving visit in Austin

Larry's Birthday was celebrated on Sunday. He and Annette talked to Blake in Spain via Skype.

Kaylee and Alex helped their Uncle Larry with his cake. Both Arrion and Annette were taking photos from the other side of the table...  ;-)

I selected Arrion's gift of three books (that will come tomorrow) because the printout was cute - Alex fooling around with his mother!  ;-)

A couple of nights ago, Alex was playing cards with us... a new game, to me... 7 up, 7 down!

Kaylee play-acting with her Rapunzel hair... with Grandma!

Annette 'did Kaylee's nails' this afternoon. [They are temporary, of course!]

We all worked on a puzzle over the weekend... different ones did different parts - really NEAT! ;-)

And, just a little while ago, so that Kaylee could help with the Star before she went to bed, Ben and Arrion put up the Christmas tree and added the lights. Perhaps other decorations tomorrow! ;-)

We head home tomorrow morning.

Families are Forever!  ;-)

With young working parents family, Thanksgiving holiday is only time Dad is available to help, these days, it seems. Each family has their own ways, and own time tables, it seems. ;-)
