Thanksgiving In McAllen

My new little nephew was born in October and we have been dying to see him in person. So we decided to make the drive and see them for Thanksgiving. He is a doll, just like his brother Bear. We were so excited to see all of them and get to spend time with them.
This is the newest Morgan, Liam. We are in love:

I love that even though we are far apart, our kiddos are close and love each other. I love listening to them talk on the phone. It is so sweet. They can talk for hours if we'd let them. Face time is such an awesome thing for family far away!
Robert is such a great big brother and is so much fun these days. The kids love him as you can see in the pictures below...

Aunt Tay got craft kits for the kids to do. Ellie had fun learning how to make new stitches and sewed up a cute little tree with Aunt Tay. Gavin and Hads made puppets.

They played "washers" with Uncle Scotty.

We gave Liam and Robert their Christmas gifts:

And I took a few pictures of this new little love in our lives:

And snapped a few for their Christmas Card:

Thanksgiving was great. Tay made a brined turkey and ordered all the sides from Cracker Barrel. I was a little hesitant about the Cracker Barrel, but it was FABULOUS! And EASY!! It was definitely a great idea and we had such a wonderful time.
Sadly a few hours after dinner Ellie started looking pale and lethargic...and soon after that she was we quickly left not wanting to pollute anyone. It was a long night as she had a stomach bug and we decided to drive home the next day in hopes to not get anyone sick. Thankfully, Ellie was the only one to get hit with it. She was a trooper on the long car ride home.
We didn't get to spend as much time as we would have liked with the other Morgan Crew, but we sure had a great time while we did.
