In November, we traveled back to Oklahoma to see the family, spending a few days with each family, celebrating both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Not an easy task! These are some favorite pics of our gatherings.
We started at Papa and Mike's house.
On Thanksgiving Day, we went to Grandma and Grandpa Beach's house. Here the girls made a gingerbread house while dinner was being prepared.

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law. Aren't they sweet? I introduced them!
"Match maker, Match maker. . . "
Jacob Andrew - my nephew. He will someday build the world's largest building - he is that smart!
Grandma and her Girls!
And our Christmas Tree at Grandma's - the day after Thanksgiving!
Sisters? Yeah, we get asked that alot!
My brother-in. . . Nay, just my brother.
Next we went to Gran's house. In 40 minutes we had torn through gifts like a hurricane, leaving a paper path of destruction in our wake!
Gran and Nana gave Chris a new guitar. Yes, he was proud!
My BFF Kelli and her little Cade.
He is a rounder! He loves his big brother Keith!
We were fortunate to celebrate Erica and Keith's official entry into our family and Erica's 18th birthday while we were there.Isn't she gorgeous? And smart! She's going to be a famouse nurse!
So after all this visiting, we drove home and collapsed! Literally! We were so tired - the kids and I didn't move for a while day. We were hoping that little Avery would be born while we were there, but, she had other ideas. . . .
