The next day our friends the Shaffer's joined in on the fun. They just moved to Georgia recently so it was a lot closer for them to come visit compared to Texas. We were able to meet their beautiful daughter Sonora and play outside again as the weather was still nice. We also had the Peterson's over who live in Huntsville. The boys played on the trampoline, played golf and hit the swing in shifts. We enjoyed a wonderful homemade pizza dinner that evening and great fellowship all day long.
Aunt MiMaw had to spoil Nicholas while we were at her house of course. Nicholas was in heaven eating the whole ice cream sandwich by himself. Fun times. At least she let Burt and I go out for dinner by ourselves for our anniversary which was so nice. We had a wonderful seafood dinner and enjoyed a quiet couple of hours.
The day after Thanksgiving cousin Emily and her mom Elizabeth came by to play. The two of them enjoyed playing kitchen, playing catch with a balloon and eating off a "big table" for lunch. It was tricky getting them to actually stay in one place though.

We were able to have dinner with my Dad and stepmom, Cheryl while we were in CA too. Grandpa played ball with Nicholas, his favorite thing to do and then we tried getting a picture of the family.
Our visit to see Santa. Mr. Snowman was first on the stop however. Nicholas enjoyed him a lot more I think. After seeing Santa we stopped at the play center where Nicholas swam on Nemo.
We had a family gathering at my mom's house. Here Burt and Nicholas are contemplating life. Then later our cousin Hannah and myself joined in on the fun.

Nicholas and Taylor. Nicholas loved to sit on her and roll over her. By the end of the week I think she had had enough, but at least Nicholas gave her cookies to make up for it.
Aunt Marissa came to visit for the day. We had a great time visiting with her. She even took Nicholas up and down the slide for me at the neighborhood park. How nice of her. Nicholas was able to try out some big boy tennis shoes also. The velcro didn't stay on though with his wide feet so we had to make another trip to a specialty store to get some shoes that actually fit.
This is my high school friend Jennifer and her two kids, Megan and Brendan. We were able to catch up on our lives for a few hours too. It was nice to visit with her again and her kids are too cute.
Nicholas had to try on Burt's socks. What a little man he is.
