We had a wonderful Thanksgiving in Pennsylvania with my parents..We got in about 3:30am Thursday and Chloe, after sleeping about 6 hours, was ready for the day...We, on the other hand were not, so she stayed up to play with Grammy and Pappy while John and I got in the bed..My mom got out alot of our toys we played with growing up and Chloe loved it! It brought back alot of wonderful Christmas memories of special toys that I had asked for. Thanksgiving day we ate and relaxed. A very nice change from what we have been used to in these past weeks...My Mom, as usual, made a delicious dinner! John and I ventured out on Black Friday for a date (Grammy & Pappy offered to babysit - Yeah!..We really didn't have to twist their arm :))...We found great deals on many gifts we needed to buy and also found Chloe a beautiful red coat (One of the main reasons for going - It is going to be a cold winter in Tennessee compared to last year.)..We headed back to Tennessee on Saturday...All in all, it was a good trip! Thank you Pappy & Grammy for the yummy food and the wonderful hospitality! John and I are well rested thanks to you!

Some videos my Dad took during the Trip...Enjoy!

Chloe loves Cheese dip and tortilla chips!

Our Dollywood Extravaganza!

Had to include a couple pics from memory lane..These were taken last November..She was a little over 4 months old..Time flies!

She used to be such a great traveler!
"It looks like Kmart exploded on that tree" ~Pappy York(I had to share this quote - John reminded me not to forget :))
She really is enjoying herself..Just hates being in the stroller, but had to because we didn't have both of her shoes....See story below....

Our Family (don't know what Chloe is doing..Maybe singing a Christmas Carol!)
On the merry-go-round!

Chloe's first ride at Dollywood
Chloe and Pappy having fun!

I think Pappy thought it was a roller coaster!

Chloe thought it was great!
We had our annual trip to Dollywood to see the Christmas lights..We had a great time once we got there...The trip down there left a lot to be desired (Chloe screamed the whole way! I thought John was going to kill her, She really knows how to push our buttons!..Oh, what family fun!).. Chloe had to spend the night in the stroller, because we lost one of her shoes..We get to the tram and realize she has no shoes, so John goes back to get the shoes ( while the man driving waited..they were so kind!), we thought were in the van...They weren't there! We found one in the stroller, but the other one has still not shown up, after multiple calls to the Dollywood lost and found..They probably wish I would stop calling...I loved those shoes..Oh well, I always wondered how people could lose one shoe when I would see on just laying there, but now I know...Just another story for the books...Unfortunately, she couldn't get out and walk around..I need to start packing an extra pair of shoes..Lesson learned....Enjoy the pics!
