Thanksgiving on the Farm & a few updates

I got back yesterday from Arkansas & I had such a good time! My sister has the pictures from the baby shower on her camera, so I can't post those yet. But, we had a GREAT Thanksgiving on my Nannie & Papa's farm. She cooked us everything we had asked for (fried squash, mashed potatoes, fried potatoes, green bean casserole) Everything was SO good. It was so nice to spend time with our family.

I wanted to post a few pictures of my papa's gravestone & of the farm that I took. I'll post more pictures with people in them later. We had a great baby shower in Conway & I feel so blessed to have so many friends & family that care about Becky & I. Here are a few pictures I took with my camera phone & of the farm:

First of all, of course we went & ate at the Cracker Barrel! My mom got Jarrett this adorable sock monkey "jack in the box" & a sock monkey nightlight. Can you believe they had those there!? Sock monkey's seem to be coming back in style:

We also went to a store called "Just T'sn" in Conway & they had these adorable sock monkey booties & hat. I got the red set (well, my mom did):

My mom also got us each a diaper bag with the boy's names on them at the same store. I think they turned out so cute & I love it!

Here is a preview of all the stuff I got at the shower. It's not a great picture because it was taken with my camera phone:

When I got home Jason had the crib & changer put together. They look so cute! I still don't have the bedding in, but when I do I'll post pics of course.

On to the is a picture of me with my Nannie's kitty - Callie. She is the sweetest cat & will let anyone pick her up. She is like a little ragdoll & will just lay around like a stuffed animal:

Here are some beautiful pictures of my Nannie & Papa's farm:

We also went to decorate my papa's grave for Christmas. This is the first time I had seen his stone since it was put in. I helped draw the picture on the front, so it was really special to see it!

  4. I’m so glad that you had a nice visit back at home! It sounds like the shower and Thanksgiving was wonderful. The sock money goods are too cute and I love that personalized diaper bag! It looks like you got a ton of stuff at the shower and I’m sure that it will all come in handy.

    Callie the kitty is very cute and your grandparents farm is beautiful. That is very special that you helped draw the photo on your papa’s grave.
