turkey {and ham} in tulsa

While I am knocking about 10 things off my work to-do list, I thought I'd be super woman and write a blog post, too! The lil Haus fam spent Thanksgiving in Tulsa this year. Every year we switch which holidays we spend with our families. Since Turkey Day was in Tulsa, Christmas will be in Lincoln with my family.

We made the road trip down to Oklahoma last Wednesday afternoon. We had beautiful weather the entire time we travelled and throughout the whole weekend. Thursday was spent in Norman with the traditional afternoon meal at Greg's aunt and uncles, followed by dessert and relaxing at Greg's grandma' house - which are right across the street from one another. 

Friday was spent visiting the remainder of Greg's extended family and getting some Haus family pictures taken. Everyone really wanted to see Avery and couldn't believe how big she had got. Since we hadn't been to Tulsa since May, they were right. She is a real toddler now! And she has the vocabulary to prove it! We also made a quick stop to Marshall Brewery for a tasting - Greg & Jeff love their beer.

Saturday was another busy day! We went to the TU football game with Jeff, Megan and Brad. Afterwards, met up with some of Greg's old high school friends for a drink and ended the evening with watching football and eating pizza from Greg's favorite place {Hideaway} with the entire Haus crew. Avery had her first 'poo poo' in the potty chair on Saturday! She told me she had to go poop, which she does often. So she layed down so I could change her diaper. Then I asked her if she wanted to go poop in the toilet - she didn't quite know so took her, took off her diaper and in one grunt a little turd came! She actually got freaked out about it but we made it a big deal with lots of cheering. Mimi even gave her a cookie to celebrate! HA!

Sunday morning we packed up our bags and got on the road again. We had lots of fun with everyone, as always. We made lots of fun memories. Who can forget our endless tea parties with Avery {among other things!}?!?

Anxious to get OUT of the car!

Loving the food!

Avery learned a new favorite game - London Bridge!

Trying to stay busy on our way home!
