Weekend Festivities

We left early Friday afternoon headed for Huntsville, TX.  We met our friend, Meghan, for dinner at Olive Garden.

 After dinner, Josh dropped me off at Sam Houston State Coliseium to meet Mom, Dad and Jonathan for Jackie's graduation. He and Andrew went on to Karl's house. Graduation finished around 8:30pm and I drove Mom and Dad to Karl's in the Caddy!

 Saturday morning we just lounged around until Jackie and Jonathan arrived around 10am.  We had a brunch... which ended up being Andrew's third breakfast thanks to Aunt Audrey and Mimi. 

 After breakfast cleanup we prepared cream cheese cutout dough to make cookies later and Andrew opened his Christmas and birthday gifts from everyone.

After opening his gifts and some play time, Andrew took a nap while the gals baked and decorated the cookies.

 We enjoyed a wonderful dinner: gumbo, stuffed pork loin, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, nutty spinach salad, taffy apple salad, green bean casserole, bread, and wine of course. MMMMMM
After dinner we cleaned up, Andrew took a bath then off to bed and the adults exchanged gifts.
Andrew made salt dough hand ornament, which made a Santa, for each couple
Mimi & Poppa each got an "Andrew and Me" collage mouse pad
