We spent Thanksgiving with our relatives in Seymour, Texas! We enjoyed being in the country for a few days. My Uncle Carl and Aunt Cathy hosted about 40 of us at their house for a big Thanksgiving lunch! They own a tractor shop and the highlight of Cody's Thanksgiving was getting to play on tractors with his 2nd cousins. Lyndon and Carl are 9 and were really sweet to let Cody tag along and play with them.
They thought this tractor wheel was a great place to sit although I couldn't get Cody to sit long enough for a picture. Parker smiled for me though!
He spent a lot of time playing in this "cage" that was on the back of the tractor!
We did bring his little "bike" and he had fun riding it up and down the hills. He would put his feet up in the front and just go. The boy has no fear! It's a little steeper than it appears...he's at the bottom of the hill here.
They also had a big mound of gravel that was very entertaining! He would climb to the top and then roll or slide down!
I love this picture of my sister with the horse!
A little drink after so much dirt and play!
At night Carl and Cody snuggled up to watch videos on the iPad. Cody wanted to be right in Carl's lap...and I think Carl liked it.
The next day we spent time at my grandparent's ranch. We decided since we were all together to have our Christmas celebration! Mimi cooked dinner and then the little kides (great-grandchildren) opened gifts. The girls do a gift exchange and we all had fun celebrating the first Christmas of the season. It didn't take Kristin long to get on the 4 wheeler...and give Parker his first ride!
My cousin Lauren is married to a police officer and she is in police training too. They had the guns out and shooting lessons going on here.
Clay, Parker, Cody and Jason! We contained the boys in the truck for a bit while they were shooting the guns! They were just as happy to play with cars in the truck
Cody showing my Pawpaw his cars!

Lyndon and Carl made Cody have this smile all night long! He loved playing with them! Too bad we don't live closer because he talks about them non stop and asks to see them all the time.
Uncle Clay and Cody Cody also loved attention he got from Clay.
This picture is fuzzy and off the phone but I still like it. Cody and Parker both wanted Uncle Clay to hold them!

Cody's first gifts of the season!
Mimi and two of her great grandsons! This was the best pic I got of the three of them together.
