What I’m Lovin’ Wednesday: Family Time

As many of you know, the Mr and I don’t live near family (background check here).  This means that for the holidays we either have to fly home or spend it with just us two here in Houston.  Both options has it’s pros and cons, but this year we totally lucked out.  Instead of having to fly home, we had the treat and blessing of having the Mr’s family come and visit us :-) Last Thursday my in-laws flew into Houston and we had a whirl-wind, action-packed, fun weekend.  It was one of those weekends where we just felt so blessed to have such a wonderful family.  What a way to start Thanksgiving week!

On Friday, the Mr gave them a tour of Houston, since I had to work…..I did not want them to have any fun without me ;-)
Then on Saturday we went and rode the ferry from Galveston Island to the Port of Bolivar.  This was super fun!Collage 1Collage 2Collage 3DSC_0047-2DSC_0069-2DSC_0052-2

On Sunday we went to church.  It was a great sermon on courage from Acts 4:1-12. You can watch the video here.DSC_0079-2
After a picnic lunch, we settled in for some Sunday naps and football.  The Mr grilled out some steaks (for the guys) and chicken (for the dolls).  It was delicious!DSC_0105-2
I have to say my favorite part of the weekend was watching the Steelers game. Obviously all of you know how the Mr and I are big Steelers fans, but this extends to our entire family.  It was SO fun to watch the game altogether.  What a fun memory!DSC_0106-2

We had a great weekend and were sooooo sad to see them go, but feel so blessed that we got to start off this great week of thanks being grateful for our family and the time we got to spend together this past weekend.

So from the Hawley family to yours, we wish you a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!

I absolutely love the picture of the whole family in your Steelers gear! Please frame that and put that on the mantel for game day! It almost makes me want to be a Steelers fan....almost. :)

Glad y'all had fun! We will certainly be missing you this holiday season!
